The five regional gas network operators in Switzerland must therefore ensure that the country is adequately supplied with natural gas in the event of a severe shortage in the next winter season. Specifically, it is about the period from October 2023 to April 2024.

The reserve should be at least 15 percent of the average Swiss annual consumption. This emergency reserve corresponds to around six terawatt hours.
