Dams and the Environment

Benefits of Dams

We need dams and the benefits of their storage lakes, which accumulate water in periods of abundance and supply it in times of scarcity.

Dams help control devastating floods and catastrophic droughts. They can regulate, and adapt to the demand, the natural flows that vary according to seasons and climatic vagaries

Dams create favorable conditions for leisure, tourism, fishing and fish breeding. In some instances dams provide enhanced environmental protection.

Promotion of the renewable energies

The promotion of the renewable energies is an integral part of the management policy of Electricity of Emosson SA. Indeed, additional studies of complementary arrangements of renewable energy are in progress, to run in a optimal way the hydraulic and solar resources.
