Swisspower Renewables

Swisspower Renewables was established as a joint venture to develop, purchase and operate renewable energy production facilities throughout Europe.

Swisspower Renewables AG allows Swisspower utilities to invest in onshore wind power plants and hydropower plants located mainly in Germany and in Italy. The company was set up in 2011 and cooperating Swisspower utilities have since been working consistently on developing and expanding its range of operations.
