Energy in Switzerland - Wikipedia

Renewable energy in Switzerland. The Swiss government has set a target to cut fossil fuel use 20% by the year 2020 [needs update] Most of the energy produced within Switzerland is renewable from Hydropower and biomass. However this only accounts for around 15% of total overall energy consumption as the other 85% of energy used is imported, mostly derived from fossil fuels.

Renewable Energy Projects in Switzerland and the EU

Rejection of Nuclear Power in EuropeEnergy Transition After FukushimaThe European Union’s Renewable Energy ProjectIreland is – besides Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Poland, and Latvia – an example of a European country that never produced nuclear power on its own grounds. Mainly due to the resistance of huge parts of the Irish people Ireland did not step into the construction of nuclear power plants, which were on its government’s agenda in the 1960s and 1970s. Austria’s referendum of 1978 to not produce nuclear power on its national territory is also remarkable. Not only because the referendums’ result was understood as a vote against the chancellor at that time, but also because of the fact, that the nuclear plant “Zwentendorf” was already built. Greece decided to stop the construction of its nuclear plant in 1983, which was decided to be built by the Hellenic Parliament in 1976, due to safety concerns. The Danish parliament decided against the generation of nuclear power on its national ground in 1985. Early experimental plants were installed already in the late 1950s and shut down in 2003. The...

Economic BenefitsSocial BenefitsEnvironmental BenefitsA region, province or state (more generally an administrative unit) may benefit from exploiting and using RES through: 1. federal and state subsidies 2. lower energy bills 3. increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) 4. increase in real-estate value 5. increase in RES supplier revenues 6. decrease in dependency on energy imports 7. increase in security of energy supply 8. economic value of the entire supply chain involved in RES. The level of subsidies will determine RES investments and development. Federal and state subsidies can be simply mapped and do not need a derived parameter as an indicator (Figure 1). Lower energy bills resulting from use of RES can be indicated by comparison with average electricity and natural-gas prices across an administrative unit. Increase in FDI can be quantified either as a percentage of contribution of RES to the total FDI on all energy sources, and as a percentage of contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP). An indicator for the increase...

Switchgear - Wikipedia

In an electric power system, switchgear is composed of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment. Switchgear is used both to de-energize equipment to allow work to be done and to clear faults downstream. This type of equipment is directly linked to the reliability of the electricity supply. The earliest central power stations used simple open knife switches, mounted on insulating panels of marble or asbestos. Power levels
