(SeeNews) – Jun 14, 2012 – Swiss utility Alpiq (SWF:ALPH) said on Wednesday it will bundle electricity from waste incineration plants (WIPs) to make it available to national transmission grid operator Swissgrid as balancing energy.

Swiss waste incineration plants generate over 1,300 GWh of electricity a year, of which Alpiq markets 450 GWh.

The new WIP pool will help ensure the stability of the electricity grid, Alpiq said.
