Stops along the energy journey

The trip begins at our headquarters in Poschiavo and takes us over the Bernina Pass, where energy cannot only be felt through the forces of nature but can also be seen in the Bernina power transmission line and the Lago Bianco lake which Repower uses for electricity generation. In Prättigau we take a look at the pressure line that goes into the Küblis power plant. Then the Repower cyclists take a cable car up the mountain where they begin an exhilarating descent into the valley. In Italy, Repower employees let their presence be known with their attire in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping center in Milan. Others show us the gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Teverola where we encounter a bunch of happy boule players near the plant. One of our Zurich colleagues gets ready to ride home on her recumbent bike after work and members of the trading team in Prague take us to a park right next to their offices. In Bucharest, an employee shows us around the university where some of our Repower colleagues earned their degrees and then takes us on a tour of the grandiose squares of the Romanian capital. Back in Switzerland, we stop in at the Ilanz substation in Surselva and experience the wild Rhine Gorge by bike. Finally, our bike trip takes us to Germany to the snow-covered Repower wind farm in Prettin and to a mine in Essen where culture and interaction bring new energy to an old mining community.
