From mid-March 2021, Paul Sidler will take over the position of Managing Director of EKZ Renewables AG from Christian Hürlimann, who has decided to leave EKZ after 13 years of successful work in the renewable energies sector in order to take on a new professional challenge.
The first, large, free-field solar plant of EKZ Renewables Ltd. was connected to the grid on 24 November. The “Algibicos” solar power plant in southern Spain is situated close to the city of Murcia and will produce somewhat more than 90 GWh of electricity per year. This is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 20,000 households.
EKZ Renewable's newest and largest wind farm to date in Portugal - PESMA II - has just begun operation. PESMA II will generate approx. 70 GWh of energy per year in the future. This corresponds roughly to the consumption of 17,000 average Swiss households. The plant near Fátima - an hour's drive from Lisbon - could therefore theoretically supply all private households in the town of Dietikon and even some small municipalities with electricity.

Welcome to EKZ Renewables

Welcome to the website of EKZ Renewables Ltd. We are involved in renewable energy projects both in Switzerland and abroad. Our area of expertise lies in the acquisition and management of investments in wind farm companies and photovoltaic power plants as well as the management of an investment in a concentrated solar thermal plant.

If required, the green power certificates generated during production will be used by the Elektrizitätswerke des Kantons Zürich (EKZ) in the future or the electricity could even be imported into Switzerland.

We are a partner to HelveticWind, a joint venture involving several Swiss energy supply companies.

Our foundation
EKZ Renewables Ltd was founded in May 2011 by EKZ as a Swiss investment company. We are headquartered in the Canton of Zurich and are fully owned by EKZ.

Our future
We are actively seeking out further investment opportunities in neighboring countries. The focus is on the areas of wind energy (onshore) and photovoltaic power plants. Our goal is to invest around 600 million Swiss francs in building a diversified portfolio of power plants in the renewable energy sector.
