New renewable energies.
SBB is participating in the Exemplary Energy and Climate initiative.
This initiative is aimed at companies which have close ties to the federal and cantonal governments and which want to take an innovative and exemplary approach to energy use. Within this context, SBB has committed itself to promoting new renewable energies. To this end, it has adopted the following targets for 2030:
- 30 gigawatt hours of electricity produced annually from new renewable energy sources, mainly photovoltaic.
- 86 gigawatt hours of heating generated annually from new renewable energy sources. Initially, by replacing fossil fuel heating systems with heat pumps, district heating and wood-burning systems.
The further potential for generating renewable electricity from wind power or small hydropower is being examined.
