Fifteen Valais sheep regularly graze on the land surrounding the Ruppoldingen run-of-river hydropower plant. Rather than using machines, Alpiq relies on animals to cultivate the natural areas along the bypass waterway. The sheep graze on nearly all plant species, among others, prolific blackberry bushes and neophytes. The animals help preserve biodiversity.
Just a few years ago, wind turbine manufacturers were the only service providers for the maintenance of wind farms. Independent suppliers like us are only slowly entering the market. With personal support, a wide range of services and our experience from our own operations, we ensure greater price competition and create added value for other operators and investors.
When companies install additional machines and equipment, this often requires an upgrade of the electricity supply line. A load limiting system, however, can eliminate the need for costly grid expansion measures. Such systems ensure that facilities continue to operate in the event of a circuit breaker overload by selectively switching off individual loads.

In September 2019, the Gösgen hydropower plant was the showcase for some emission-free logistics: Hydrospider AG, in which Alpiq has a 45% stake, and Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility presented a business model based on green hydrogen – the only one of its kind in Europe.
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.
