Consolidation phase concluded in 2019
A major new energy innovation project to demonstrate how smart hydropower technologies can deliver a low-carbon, reliable and resilient power system was launched on 10 December 2019.
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.
