Meet Swissgrid Laufenburg


Nowadays, a world without electricity is unimaginable. With a length of 6,700 km, the Swiss transmission grid is the lifeblood of our economy. The operators in the Swissgrid grid control room are there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to attend to the controlling and monitoring of the current flows in the transmission grid. Their goal is to keep the mains frequency stable at 50 Hertz, even in critical situations.

Pioneering feats will also be needed in the future. Discover more about the exciting challenges of Swissgrid and the contribution you could make to guarantee supply. Swissgrid warmly invites you to take a look into the heart of the Swiss electricity system. Visit us in the Laufenberg grid control room and gain an insight into the Swissgrid control centre.

  • What role does the transmission grid play in the energy strategy of the federal government?
  • What does Swissgrid undertake to integrate renewable energy into the grid?
  • Why does the transmission grid have to be renewed and expanded?

Our experts on site will be happy to answer these and other questions on the Swiss electricity system.

We look forward to seeing you.
