MONET 2030: Renewable energies


SDG 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

Excerpt from Swiss target 7.2: The share of cost-efficient renewable energies in the total energy consumption is to continuously increase. […]

Significance of the indicator
The indicator presents the share of renewable energies in final energy consumption. The use of fossil fuels such as petroleum products, and nuclear energy causes pollution and entails significant risks. Furthermore, these energy sources are not available on an unlimited basis. This is why consumption of these energies needs to be reduced in favour of renewable energies. In order to promote sustainable development, the share of renewable energies in total energy consumption needs to be increased.

International comparability
This indicator can be compared at international level.

Methodology

This indicator presents the share of renewable energy in final energy consumption. The data are from the overall energy statistics and the Swiss renewable energy statistics published by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE).

The first are summary statistics compiled by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy based on several surveys relating to energy production and consumption. The renewable energy statistics are a compilation of data from various sources, and partial statistics annotated by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.

Targets

Swiss target 7.2: The share of cost-efficient renewable energies in the total energy consumption is to continuously increase. By 2035, annual domestic electricity production from hydropower is expected to amount to 37 400 GWh/a, while that from other renewable energies is expected to amount to 11 400 GWh/a (at least 4 400 GWh/a by 2020).

International target 7.2: By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
