Clean Energy Tour
On the “Clean Energy Tour” between Piz Nair and St. Moritz, the “Energy from water, sun, wind and biomass” project is presented in detail.
The Clean Energy St. Moritz-Graubünden overall energy project is the first Alpine vacation and sports destination in the world to consistently promote the use of renewable energies and efficient energy use: The consumption of fossil fuels (heating oil, petrol and diesel) and electricity is to be reduced and replaced by renewable, locally generated energy such as water, sun, geothermal energy and biomass.
The Clean Energy St. Moritz-Graubünden association was founded after the Year of the Mountains 2002, eco-tourism 2002 and the Alpine World Ski Championships 2003 inspired the vision for this sustainable initiative.
