The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine not only heralded a turning point in security policy. In view of the looming gas and electricity shortages, he has also changed energy policy. In the middle of the energy policy storm: the Valais center state councilor and top energy director Roberto Schmidt (60). The president of the cantonal energy directors’ conference once initiated the nuclear phase-out as a member of the National Council. He is not moving away from this today either, as he makes clear in the Blick interview.

Blick: Mr. Schmidt, you are considered the “father of the nuclear phase-out”. Do you now regret your move?
Robert Schmidt: no The current shortage of electricity is not due to the gradual phase-out of nuclear energy, but to our dependence on foreign fossil fuels.
