Energy future in Switzerland
A world in which your luxury spa is heated using wood
In Switzerland the foundations have been laid for a change in energy policy. The modernisation of the existing network infrastructure, increasing energy efficiency and expanding the role of renewable energies will play a decisive role here.
The future belongs to renewable energies
The change in energy policy requires significant investments over a long-term horizon. This is where UBS Global Asset Management comes into play. Switzerland’s leading asset manager is building bridges between institutional investors seeking investments with sustainable returns and the energy sector, which requires capital for innovative projects. UBS Global Asset Management is therefore creating a win-win situation for both investors and the energy sector.
Wood-fired heating plants offer potential
Wood-fired heating plants are an example of such projects. These provide CO2-neutral heating to residential and commercial properties. Göschenen is home to one of these plants, which also delivers warmth to Andermatt via a district heating network. In future, even luxury hotels in this ambitious tourist resort will heat their rooms and wellness facilities using this environmentally friendly method.
Find out more about the innovative wood-fired heating plant in Göschenen that will also provide environmentally friendly heating to Andermatt.
UBS is the premium partner of the SwissECS, which will take place on the Bundesplatz in Berne on 11 and 12 September 2013. The forum, which provides a platform for top national and international speakers, will focus on energy and the climate.
UBS Global Asset Management offers institutional investors the opportunity to invest in the area of clean energy infrastructure.
