Due to the rapid growth of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), the idea arose to set up branches outside the canton - including in Valais. The visionary concept of Energypolis is based on the connection between the EPFL, the education provider HES-SO, The Ark Foundation and other players from the fields of energy, health and the environment. And Gilgen is supplying the technology for security locks at the main entrances to the three buildings. "Together with our key service partners, we developed a concept with eight security carousel sliding doors each," explains Lower Valais sales manager Christophe Emery. By 2023, Energypolis will be one of the most important lighthouse projects in the entire canton.
