In our daily lives, we encounter SIG products everywhere: At its Swiss site in Neuhausen, the company SIG allCap Ltd manufactures around three billion caps for beverage cartons every year. This globally leading manufacturer of cardboard packaging and filling equipment for beverages and foodstuffs uses over 30 injection moulding machines to manufacture these products, requiring very large amounts of electrical energy and expensive compressed air. For this reason, SIG allCap relies on energy data logging and visualisation from Xamax, an Alpiq brand.
Why does Germany need another energy supplier? And as a company with a great deal of experience in the field of electricity generation and energy trading, what exactly can we offer private households? Patrick Notzon, Head of Energy Retail Germany, explains how his team is equipped to create customer benefits in the future.
On 29 October 2019, the partial utilisation plan for the Bel Coster wind farm, which was developed by Alpiq together with the municipalities of L’Abergement, Ballaigues and Lignerolle, was approved by the canton of Vaud. An appeal against this decision has since been filed. Nevertheless, the project and the collaboration with France will continue to be driven forward.
Two senior citizens’ centres in the Swiss municipalities of Laufen and Kriens are reducing their grid costs thanks to an energy optimisation solution from Alpiq. In order to reduce peak loads, the system switches off major electricity consumers in both centres in a targeted manner. This reduces the grid costs by some 25%. The investment in the system will pay off in just under four years.
With innovative solutions, Alpiq offers its customers in Europe comprehensive and efficient services in the fields of energy generation and marketing as well as energy optimisation and e-mobility. Below, we would like to present selected projects.
