About us

With its expert knowledge and designs for the future, SEV is a major feature of the local energy sector. SEV currently has 294 members, including 113 hydropower plants, 46 heating plants and 153 photovoltaic installations. SEV represents 192 enterprises, 33 municipalities and public bodies and 80 co-operatives and consortiums, making it an integral part of the South Tyrolean energy landscape.

In spring 2012 the Raiffeisen Energy Association and the South Tyrol Biomass Association joined together to form SEV. The Biomass Association, founded in 1998, currently represents 44 district heating plants, while the Raiffeisen Energy Association has since 2006 been supporting small and medium-sized energy enterprises. Both organisations are committed to a responsive use of renewable energy and both contribute to opinion-making on energy policy in South Tyrol.
Our profile
When it comes to efficient supply using renewable energy, South Tyrol has an advantage – its location. The question is how to use it. Since the late 19th century, energy and heat have been produced locally here, which is why the region has production and supply structures that are now “modern” in this age of renewable energy. Renewable energy ultimately also requires decentralised production structures such as “smart” distribution.

Any homeowner can nowadays produce electrical energy and become an active market player. The use of sun, wind and water energy sources means that the restructuring of the energy sector is now essential. This energy transition in South Tyrol began long ago: municipal utilities, medium-sized enterprises and co-operatives ensure supply even in remote mountain areas. Only those who know this history can help shape the future.
