The new energy law of the canton of Zurich is pushing the pace. What lies ahead for communities, how do they respond and what can they do now? Read our assessment here after our webinar on February 10, 2022.
We had over a hundred participants in our webinar, the majority of whom were interested community representatives. We asked them what the new energy law made them feel. Fully 40% said they would act now and do more to achieve net zero in the community. Another 23% are now talking more about the topic. For 14%, the goal has been in focus for a long time; they are the pioneers of the energy transition in communities. Like the municipality of Pfäffikon, whose local councilor Lukas Steudler described in the webinar how the village is moving forward with the energy transition with a clear vision and forward-looking energy planning.
Of course, the municipalities in the canton of Zurich and elsewhere are not only taking action because of new energy legislation. We at Energie Zukunft Schweiz consider the following arguments to be crucial for acting now :

No matter where your community is, Energy Future Switzerland is there for you. We can provide you with comprehensive support in all phases: strategy, planning, implementation, awareness raising and mediation.
Why Energy Future Switzerland? Because we are convinced that we offer a good overall package:
