New renewable energies.

SBB systematically taps its business potential for new renewable energies.

As a government-owned company, SBB participates in the Exemplary Energy and Climate initiative. In doing so, SBB also hopes to play its part as an innovative company and role model in the area of renewable energy generation. To this end, SBB owns a large portfolio of buildings, infrastructure and areas which are potentially suitable for generating energy from renewable sources. For this reason, SBB has set new ambitious goals to expand its production of new renewable energy, namely:

  • 30 gigawatt hours of domestic electricity from renewable energy sources, principally photovoltaic systems, each year from 2030.
  • 120 gigawatt hours of electricity from photovoltaic systems feeding directly into the traction power grid (16.7Hz).

The further potential for generating renewable electricity from wind power or small hydropower is being examined.
