Top 3 in the 2015 Electricity Supplier Study by the German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ)

Once again in 2015 we ranked high in the “Stromanbieter 2015” (Electricity Supplier Study) of the German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ). We were praised for our low prices, customer-friendly terms and conditions, good service and, first and foremost, our highly-informative Internet site.

The DISQ jury’s verdict: “We were particularly impressed by the contractual conditions with a short, four-week minimum term and automatic extension – again by four weeks – and the long price guarantee of 14 months (market average: 10.9 months). Moreover … the costs were consistently below the market average. With regard to service, the cross-regional supplier earned points especially for its highly-informative Internet site. For example, the site contains rate comparisons with other companies, and customers can view their consumption history online.”

The DISQ examined the service and conditions of 35 electricity suppliers on behalf of the news broadcaster n tv. The companies were examined on the basis of more than 1,000 test contacts by phone, e-mail and Internet. The “Stromanbieter 2015” study has been carried out annually in cooperation with n-tv since 2008.

In December 2014 the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy bestowed the Gestalter der Energiewende ("Designer of the Energy Policy Turnaround") award on SWM in acknowledgement of the "M-Partnerkraft" power management project.

In addition to the renewable energies expansion drive, the M-Partnerkraft virtual power plant is a key component for the success of the energy policy turnaround: different generation units and consumers are expediently connected and flexibly managed. In this way, SWM enables citizens and companies to participate in the power supply of the future. The virtual power plant was launched already in 2010 as a pilot project with power generated by SWM facilities. In the meantime, the project has been expanded to comprise a wide range of different energy sources, such as bio-energy, wind power, as well as solar energy and hydropower.
