Thermal power plants for a stable electricity grid
Thermal power plants convert fuels into heat, mechanical or electrical energy. They comprise gas-fired, nuclear and coal-fired power plants. Thanks to their high degree of flexibility, gas-fired power plants in particular are ideally suited for the balancing of load fluctuations in the electricity grid. They thus play an important role in ensuring security of supply.
Safety and environmental protection take priority
Alpiq owns and operates thermal power plants in Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, Spain and the Czech Republic. The generation of energy in harmony with the environment is our top priority. This includes sustainable resource management and the low-emission generation of electricity. Already during the constructing our thermal power plants, environmental protection and clean air are addressed as key factors. The plants are equipped with certified environmental technology and secure monitoring. We regularly take measures to reduce emissions.
