Alpiq, which is founded upon Atel and is hence able to profit from its one hundred years of experience, has been present in Italy since 1999, which means from the very start of the liberalisation of the electricity market. Today the company has a range of thermal, hydraulic and wind power stations. Of these, it operates some itself and others in cooperation with other companies.

Over more than ten years, Alpiq achieved considerable market shares with its electricity supply in various customer segments. Alpiq's main focus was on key account customers, individual customers that are registered in the VAT register and public institutions. As of 2015, in accordance with the new strategic orientation, Alpiq will discontinue its electricity sales in various European countries, including Italy.

Alpiq Energia Italia is active in the electricity generation managing power stations and in the sale of power and gas to resellers, heavy energy consumers and utilities.
