Ecology

The environment in the earth of our preoccupation

The Anzère Spa & Wellness centre offers a setting for relaxation and leisure, and a place of wellbeing open to all.  Ideally located at the heart of the resort, the building superbly blends into the chalet-type architecture of Anzère.  

We cannot claim to offer thermal baths, since the water we use does not come from a hot spring, so we highlight the magnificent panoramic view we offer over to the Valais Alps.  The water in the pools comes from the mains water network. It is heated to a temperature of 33°C. The energy for this provided by the recently constructed wood-based heating system.

The Energy Used

Wood is an environment-friendly durable source of heat and is neutral as regards CO2 emissions. During combustion it only releases the quantity of CO2 that it assimilates during growth. In Swiss forests, each year two times more wood grows than is used. The wood pellets used by Anzère’s heating plant are delivered by the Valpellets company in Uvrier, 16 kilometres away.

With the increase in the price of oil, wood is  a competitive source of energy today. As a comparison, in Austria, 30% of heating energy comes from wood. In Switzerland, at the present time it only represents 7% whereas the proportion of forests is practically identical.

 

You can find full information on the largest wood-based heating plant in Europe on the website http://www.cba-anzere.ch/. Anzère Spa and Wellness centre also produces electricity by solar cells at the top of the outside deck. The production of 16,000 kWh will contribute each year to the heating energy needs of the whole centre.
