Switzerland wants to reduce energy dependence

Geneva, Apr 22 (Prensa Latina) Albert Rösti, Federal Councillor and Head of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy, and Communications, stated Friday that Switzerland wants to reduce its high energy dependence on surrounding countries.

To that purpose, a new climate and innovation law will be submitted to a referendum in June, Rösti said.

Switzerland currently imports nearly three-quarters of the energy it consumes, the official said in a press release.

The new law does not include bans or additional tax burdens for citizens or companies but does offer them financial support.

With this regulation, the Federal Council hopes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050.
