Energy saving measures have been introduced, across the ski resort of morzine in the French Alps. From ski lifts and piste groomers to lights, reducing energy consumption has been a top priority for resorts, amid the energy crisis.
Energy use is in full swing in the French ski resort of morzine. Electricity is one of the top expenditures for skiing destinations.
Chairlifts, artificial snow machines and snow grooming all consume energy and to keep bills under control, the resort has been working on an energy-saving plan.
Europe is still in an energy crisis, after the war in Ukraine led to a massive cutback in natural gas from Russia. The EU used to receive about 40% of its gas supply from Russia , as a result, much of Europe’s energy system is facing an unprecedented crisis and alpine ski resorts are not exempt.
The French Government has adopted a plan to bring down energy consumption by 10% by 2024 and businesses in morzine have been adapting to the increase in energy prices and supplies costs.
