Energy Saving Alliance seeks participants for survey


Bern – The Energy Saving Alliance launched by the federal government wants to sound out the success of the campaign so far by conducting a survey. Companies are asked to participate by Dec. 22. The results will be used to readjust the campaign.

The Energy Saving Alliance, founded by the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications and made up of companies, associations and public sector institutions, has launched a survey for companies. “Your feedback is important to us,” Allianz writes in the introduction to the survey, which takes about five minutes to complete. Companies are asked to participate by Dec. 22.

Economiesuisse is also calling on its members to participate in the survey. The results will be used “to assess the success of the campaign to date and to make targeted readjustments,” the trade association wrote in a memo to its members. There, economiesuisse also points to the establishment of a virtual reserve power plant from emergency generators initiated by the federal government. Interested companies in possession of emergency generators can register for participation in the reserve power plant via e-mail.

However, by spring at the latest, Switzerland must “consistently invest in an adequate, low-cost and climate-neutral energy supply,” economiesuisse further demands in the statement. “It cannot be that energy becomes a structurally scarce commodity in Switzerland.” This is something that the trade association intends to continue to work hard for in the future. hs
