Communal Energy Management

Communal Energy Management

We will accompany your community in to the future

ENCO Energie-Consulting AG has many years of experience in advising communities and supports them on the way to more energy efficiency, more renewable energy and more sustainability.
Working together with the administration, the energy supply companies and private participants, we demonstrate the optimal possibilities within the framework of energy planning and energy concepts. We develop with them concrete measures which bring their communities on the way to the vision of the „2000 Watt Society“.

Contact for Energy Planning and Energy Concepts: » Reto Rigassi

Our vision …

… is a cross-border renewable energy policy whose success is based on the interaction of humans, the environment and economics. This alignment sustains the quality of life and location and promotes regional value creation.

Innovation & Cooperation

Innovation & Cooperation

We detect trends

The challenges related with energy transition and climate change have gained increasing attention from policy-makers and citizens groups over the last decade. In Switzerland, public debates with regards to the National Energy Strategy 2050 and the increasing importance of networks like the “Energy Cities Association” or "Suisse Eole" illustrate some of the trends related with sustainable energy management and security, and the search for the most appropriate public policy response. We work with policy-makers, researchers, utilities and end users. Based on our solid knowledge of the energy policy landscape, we anticipate new challenges. We draw from Swiss experience and know-how (e.g. Energy Cities/ Energiestadt, Cleantech, Vehicle to Grid, Decentralized Energy Supply, Smart Cities, 2000 Watt sites) to integrate relevant solutions in existing energy planning and management instruments and facilitate know-ledge transfer to relevant stakeholders.

We work hand in hand with policy-makers in Switzerland and at international levels to set up and implement innovative solutions designed to support the sustainable use of energy and mitigate climate change.

Our vision …

… is the dissemination of knowledge and – both technical and policy – innovation to build a sustainable energy future. We’re working towards a sustainable economy that meets the needs of our populations without compromising those of future generations.

Commitment to Wind Energy

Commitment to Wind Energy

We give wind energy the place it deserves

In Switzerland, wind energy is an often discussed renewable energy source with great potential. In the Swiss-wide network we play a central role in order to use the wind resources of Switzerland within the overall context of the Energy Strategy 2050. As the administrative office of „Suisse Eole“ we build bridges between the various interested groups (population, environmental protection organizations, public authorities, project developers, etc.). We maintain contact with the government, regions and communities as well asnot only project developers, energy supply companies, but also NGOs and research institutes. We are always available to you as a contact person for questions and ideas concerning the wind landscape of Switzerland.

Contact Wind energy Switzerland: » Reto Rigassi / » Benjamin Szemkus

We know the wind research which takes the energy transition forward

In order for wind energy to increase its share in the energy mix, research projects are necessary, especially in the area of social acceptance. ENCO is working in the research and implementation programmes of the government and with international organizations such as the IEA Wind. We know the players and programmes and the relevant questions. If you are looking for a competent partner in Switzerland, then please contact us!

We make international experience usable

Switzerland is not alone with its experience of wind energy, which above all is concerned with public acceptance. In order to obtain a successful approach and good examples, but also to exchange avoidable mistakes, we are involved in a working group of the IEA Wind on the subject of social acceptance. Do you need ideas or strategies for the social acceptance of renewable energy, then we are more than happy to place our knowledge of these activities at your disposal!

Contact international exchange: » Stefanie Huber

Our vision …

… is a far-reaching coverage of all energy requirements with renewable resources such as wind, sun, wood and water: here and worldwide, now and in the future.
