Founded in 1897, EBM is a cooperative under private law operating in the energy sector, primarily in Switzerland and France, but also in neighbouring countries. We offer our customers products that meet their needs reliably and we promote renewable energies and energy efficiency in the areas of the grid, electricity supply and district heating supply. Together with AVAG (distribution grids around Olten acquired in the summer of 2016), its grid area covers 78 communes in the cantons of Basel-Landschaft and Solothurn, as well as in Alsace. Its 170,000 customers get their electricity supplied reliably and round the clock. As a leading supplier of district heating, EBM operates 210 heating networks and plants in Switzerland and Alsace. Our renewable electricity is generated at the best locations in Switzerland and abroad. Our holding in aventron AG (formerly Kleinkraftwerk Birseck AG) enables us to participate in a farm made up of 120 power plants with an installed power capacity of some 350 MW. As a responsible and sustainable company, we seek to strike a healthy balance between the concerns of society, the environment and the economy in the long term. Remaining faithful to our original vision, we want to keep on developing EBM, making it a modern and cost-effective supplier with a focus on its customers. To sum up, our company, with its 416 employees and 14 trainees, knows energy inside out.
