Participation process

What form does the participation process take, or which criteria does Alpiq EcoPower apply to select projects or participation options?

  • Choice of location: Gradients and water are a must. As a rule, the selected sites are not located in conservation areas. The use of water must be environmentally compatible. No structural or environmental killer criteria.

  • Energy business: power generation must be profitable. The benchmarks are the feed-in tariff (KEV) or the market price. For existing facilities, additional production volume must be achieved through renovation and upgrading.

  • Evaluation criteria for participations: technical, financial and legal aspects are assessed. The facilities must be a good portfolio fit. Local support is important.

  • Flexibility (involvement of existing owners): Alpiq is flexible. Owners can retain a share. For new facilities, partner models with municipalities and cantons are considered. The project must make business sense.

  • Strategic considerations: What makes sense? Which cooperation models/partners are possible?
