Hydroelectricity is clean, renewable energy. It cannot, however, be produced without encroaching on the surrounding landscape. When valuable ecosystems are lost through such encroachment, the KWO is committed to replacing any losses through suitable measures. Affected ecosystems in the area of concession are continually being enhanced, naturally reformed, rebuilt or even newly built. The KWO accepts and assumes its responsibility for the natural landscape and biodiversity in its catchment area.
