  • Switzerland is a net energy importer and relies on imports for over half of its energy needs. The import requirement is largely for oil products, natural gas and coal, as Switzerland is mostly self-sufficient in electricity production but does not possess any fossil-fuel resources.
  • Switzerland has five nuclear-power stations and nuclear power has accounted for just under a quarter of gross domestic energy consumption and just under 34% of electricity generation in 2017. Following the Fukushima incident in Japan in 2011, the Swiss government unveiled comprehensive, long-term plans to phase out nuclear power in favour of renewable energy, a decision that has since gained support in a referendum in 2017. The main focus of policy over the coming decades will be on improving energy efficiency and increasing renewables production in order to meet long-term energy demand.
  • In November 2016 Swiss voters rejected a referendum motion to phase out nuclear power on a strict timetable. The proposal to limit the plants' lifespan to 45 years would have led to three being taken offline in 2017, with the other two closing in 2024 and 2029. This would have required a sharp increase in imported coal- or gas-fired electricity over the near term to pick up the slack, and government officials also expressed concerns that the accelerated phase-out of nuclear power could result in power shortages.
  • One major indigenous source of energy generation is hydropower, which contributes substantially to meeting the country's electricity demand. In 2017 hydropower is estimated to have accounted for 58% of total electricity generation.
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit forecasts that energy consumption will increase over the forecast period (2018-22), from an estimated 24m tonnes of oil equivalent (toe) in 2018 to just over 25.2m toe in 2022.
