Security of supply:
We operate the Swiss transmission system and are responsible for the operation, security and expansion of the 6700 kilometre long high-voltage grid in the heart of Europe.

Electricity market: Electricity cannot be stored; production and consumption have to be balanced at all times. Our electricity marketplace ensures a balance between electricity producers and consumers.

Renewable energies: Swissgrid's Guarantees of Origin system for electricity delivers gapless traceability, from production through to the end consumer. Swissgrid handles cost-covering remuneration for feed-in to the electricity grid on behalf of the federal government. This is a government incentive program designed to promote renewable energies.

Swissgrid ensures the security and quality of Switzerland's electricity supply.
