Switzerland is lagging behind in promoting renewable energy

It was a major setback in Switzerland’s fight against climate change – and a blow to Environment Minister Simonetta Somaruga (61). Voters rejected the new CO law on Sunday, with 51.6 percent of the vote. This means that the goals of the Paris climate agreement can no longer be achieved. By 2030, greenhouse gas emissions are to be halved from 1990 levels.

An assessment published Thursday by the Swiss Energy Foundation (SES) indicates just how great the need for action really is. Hydropower accounts for a considerable share of electricity in Switzerland. However, it is important now that our country builds facilities for the generation of renewable electricity. And here hydropower doesn’t have that much potential anymore.
