ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the renewable energy sources installed in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The 180 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels can produce enough power for every sixth ride to the summit, and the stations at the top and bottom of the Piz Nair mountain railway have solar PV facades. Several PV panels are also installed at the roofs of local hotels and the Ludains ice arena. In addition, there is a wind turbine at 2,666 meters above sea level. According to the author, the latest project in St. Moritz involves the famous lake as an energy source.
