Review Spring Event

21. April 2023

Exchange, networking and a lot of tangible commitment: Yesterday, the members of the Energy Saving Alliance met in Bern for their spring event. It was the second meeting of this kind. While last autumn’s event focused on the founding of the Alliance and the acute danger of an energy shortage, this time the focus was on the longer-term perspective.

Federal Councillors Albert Rösti and Guy Parmelin emphasised the importance of this commitment: Federal Councillor Albert Rösti appealed to make the necessary savings in time for next winter, because all measures are cheaper than dealing with a power shortage. Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin added that we must act now in order to be ready at any time. As various members impressively demonstrated with their concrete examples after the speeches, a lot can be achieved with few resources. However, this only works if there is knowledge about the savings potential. For this reason, voluntary measures that are implemented directly where they have an effect are particularly important. The Energy Saving Alliance makes this commitment visible and thus makes an important contribution to preventing energy shortages.

The Federal Council has adopted a large raft of measures so that Switzerland can quickly strengthen its energy supply for winter. To complement these steps, a campaign has been launched today with the slogan “Energy is in short supply. Let’s not waste it!” The federal government has developed the campaign in collaboration with over 40 partners from business, industry, civil society and the public sector. At its meeting on 31 August 2022, the Federal Council was also informed that these partners are setting up an “energy saving alliance” that will be continuously expanded as winter draws near.
