Pillars of our activities


Market access

We sell the power generated by our own hydropower and solar plants, wind farms, biomass and gas-fired power plants and offer 24/7 market access as a service for other power generators, optimising our own and third-party revenues for intermittent and flexible assets.


Power supply and hedging

We implement power supply and hedging strategies for energy consumers such as industries, corporations and energy suppliers through bilateral agreements and market-based approaches.

Long-term experience and expertise

We are Europe's largest renewable power generator and have been in the market for decades with a proven record of success. Our first nature was to strive for the heights of the waterfalls in 1895 to turn its force into power. Performance is our second nature: turning power into optimised revenue streams.
