The Ukraine war has given the discussion about Switzerland’s energy future a new urgency. The Federal Council wants to get away from oil and gas – not just from that from Russia. The goal: net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

This brings one form of energy into focus: electricity. Switzerland will order from the CO2 get rid of, will need massively more electricity in the next few years and decades than before. The Federal Electricity Commission (Elcom) warns that security of supply could soon be at risk. Environment Minister Simonetta Sommaruga (61) wants to oblige the hydroelectric power plants to have a reserve ready as early as next winter. In addition, two to three gas-fired power plants are to be built as a back-up.
