Current situation

Energy supply of Aletsch Bahnen AG

Aletsch Bahnen is aware of the seriousness of the energy shortage scenario. The Swiss Cable Car Association (SBS) is in close consultation with experts and authorities in this regard and is working on suitable solutions and energy-saving measures at various escalation levels. They are also currently drafting measures that can be implemented effectively and within a reasonable period of time to reduce energy consumption. Nevertheless, it is important to keep the problem in perspective:

  • Lifts and cable cars consume 0.3% of the annual electricity consumption in Switzerland and are responsible for an economic value added of approximately CHF 6bn in the winter months.

  • The exchange and refund terms of Aletsch Bahnen AG

  • Government statement: The power supply is assured. Do your bit for Switzerland’s security of supply this winter and avoid wasting energy.
