Welcome to the
energy saving alliance

Together for energy supply

A secure and sustainable energy supply is of key importance for both the population and the economy in Switzerland. In winter 2022/2023, our gas and electricity supply will be faced with major challenges.

The energy saving alliance brings together organisations that support efforts to ensure the security of supply this winter by voluntarily taking measures to use energy in a more efficient and sparing manner.

By committing to the energy alliance, the organisations reaffirm their determination to join forces. They will work consistently to raise awareness amongst their members, partners and employees with respect to the economic use of energy and encourage and enable them to act accordingly.

Signatories of the alliance

  • actively support the alliance’s objectives,
  • communicate the contents of the campaign
  • and/or their members implement additional efficiency measures of their own.

These efficiency measures must be specific to the sector or company, be implemented in addition to existing efficiency measures within the organisation and contribute to saving energy during the winter of 2022/2023.

With their voluntary measures, the alliance’s members will contribute to ensuring that the energy supply is secured for as long as possible. The aim is to avert the need for shutdowns and, to the greatest extent possible, the introduction of new regulations.

Joining the alliance is possible at any time. However, the sooner the better. The measures should be implemented as soon as possible so that they have an impact by winter 2022-23.
