We are on an insane mission to find the real owners of the 10 biggest water power plants in Switzerland.

The ultimate goal of this project is a visualization that brings real ownership transparency to a complex and often intransparent economic sector.

In the end, we'd like to show which cantons and municipalities own what parts of power companies - and how they would be affected by a bankruptcy of the latter.


  • We take the water power plants as roots and go forth: Let's take Innertkirchen I as example
  • Who maintain it? KWO
  • Who owns the maintainer? BKW, EWB, etc.
  • Who owns the owner of the maintainer? City of Berne, Canton of Berne, etc etc etc.
  • etc.


  • All collected by ourselves from company websites and Wikipedia etc.
