Reservations about infrastructure projects

Generally speaking, infrastructure projects – and not just those in the field of energy generation and transmission – trigger discussions. These discussions, which centre on all different types of energy generation, are often particularly heated in the energy segment. It is interesting here that perceptions and assessments vary widely depending on the country. And even environmentally optimised projects like our “Lago Bianco” project are controversial in the public realm.

In view of these circumstances, we see it as our duty to carefully plan all projects, to seek out the optimum solutions in dialogue with all stakeholders and to deploy the best possible technologies. We are responsible in our decision-making and take into account technical, environmental and economic aspects. But we are also convinced that one-sided perspectives will not help us reach our goal. Prosperity, job security, social advancement and also environmental improvements cannot be accomplished without renewing existing infrastructure or creating new infrastructure.
