Hydropower as a renewable source of electricity

Hydropower is the number one renewable energy source and the backbone of Swiss electricity generation. We have been using this energy source for more than 100 years with our own run-of-river, storage and pumped storage power plants in Switzerland and Italy. Hydropower will become even more important in the future: It is carbon-free, efficient and highly flexible.

Energy generation based on an environmentally friendly portfolio

We have an attractive, highly flexible and environmentally friendly hydropower portfolio. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, our power plants are milestones of Swiss engineering history, which we continuously optimise and control digitally with a high degree of efficiency.
