Hydroelectric energy production is the leading renewable energy source with 62.43% of national total electricity production. The total installed renewable capacity (biomass + geothermal + hydroelectricity +solar +wind) in Switzerland increased by 1.13% from 14,031 MW in 2010 to 14,189 MW in 2011, ranking on 17th position globally. Over the previous 5 years, the total installed renewable energy capacity has raised by 0.44%. China was the world leader for total installed renewable capacity in 2011 with 301,440 MW, or times larger than Switzerland. The total installed renewable capacity in Switzerland in 2012 represented 69.5% of total installed energy capacity (all conventional + all renewable energy sources).

One of the main objectives of Switzerland's energy policy, with the introduction of the FIT, is to increase the amount of electricity generated by new renewable energy (without large-scale hydro) by 5,400 GWh, or 10% of the electricity consumption, by Wind energy is supposed to add 600 to 1,200 GWh to these targets.

6 TWh Switzerland RE forecast in Switzerland Forecasts The Swiss government s target for 2020 is to reach a renewable energy production equal to 24 % of total energy consumption. The target put a few years ago for 2030 is to add a 5,400 GWh or renewable energy production to total. This means aproximatively 220 GWh per year. In 2020 the added production should be approximatively 3000 GWh.

7 Renewables - Incentive scheme Incentives for renewables fast overview The main stimulus for renewables is a feed-in-tariff scheme for each renewable source emended by government. The Swiss FIT program took as a base model the German FIT program. The first Energy Law was introduced on 26th June 1998, the so called LEne, and in 2008 new feed-in-tariffs were introduced, with the LAEI the new Energy Law. Through the years there was made revisions on energy law. Feed-in-tariffs for renewables, were actualized in February 2010, but they are still provisory. Tariffs are paid for a period of years Photovoltaic Feed - in tariffs Swiss franc (euro) /kwh Ground mounted Rooftop BIPV Duration (years) (0.2324) (0.3019) (0.0306) (0.33) Swiss Franc/ = 0,83 October (0.3019) (0.4036) 25 Wind Mills Biomass/gas/wastes Geothermal Small wind mills < 10 kwp Duration (years) Large wind mills > 10 kwp Duration (0.1778) (0.1778) first 5 years Power plant 50 kwp - 5 MWp (0.153) 0.28 (0.2316) Bonuses: (0.0289) 0.08 (0.0662) Duration (years) Plants <20 MW Plants >20 MW (0.2316) 0.4 (0.3309) (0.1878) Hydro (0.1117) After premium period, to year 20 Power plant <10 MW (0.062) 0.26 (0.2151) Pressure Bonuses: 0.01 (0.0083) (0.0372) Water management bonusses: (0.0207) (0.0455)

9 Hydroelectricity Hydroelectricity Share of hydroelectricity in EU % 90.15% Switzerland EU (27) In 2012, hydroelectricity production reached 3101 ktoe ( GWh) (equal to 56.8% of total renewable energy production).

10 Hydroelectricity Hydroelectricity At the beginning of the 1970s, based on the estimated mean production level, hydropower accounted for almost 90% of domestic electricity production, but this figure dropped to approximately 60% by 1985 following the shutting of Switzerland's nuclear power plants, and is at present about 56%. In consequence, hydropower remains Switzerland's major domestic source of renewable energy. Over a third of the total power produced in Switzerland is supplied by stations using reservoirs - constructed by building huge dams in the mountains. The dam wall of Grande Dixence, in canton Valais, the third highest in the world, at 285 meters. Run-of-river stations, which use the water's natural flow to drive their turbines supply another quarter comes. 556 hydropower plants in Switzerland have a capacity of no less than 300 kilowatts each, which generate an average of approximately 35,830 GWh per year: -47% are produced in run-of-river power plants, -49% in storage power plants and -approximately 4% in pumped storage power plants. Two-thirds of hydroelectricity are produced in the mountain cantons of Uri, Grisons, Ticino and Valais, while Aargau and Bern also generate important quantities. Approximately 11% of Switzerland's hydropower generation derive from facilities sited on bodies of water along the country's borders. The hydropower market is estimated at 2 billion Swiss francs (basis = delivery from power plant at 5 cents/kwh), and is thus an essential fragment of Switzerland's energy industry.

12 Solar energy Solar energy Share of solar energy in EU % 98.62% Switzerland EU (27) The photovoltaics market has expanded globally by more than 30% per year over the past few years, in particular in Europe. In Switzerland, the installed capacity is approximately 30 MW, or 0.04% of Switzerland's electricity production, which is very small proportion. Nevertheless, with the introduction of feed-in tariffs remuneration to the electricity network, the Swiss photovoltaics market should expand more. The systems average output in Switzerland is about 820 kwh/kwp (annual yield/peak output of system), however modern systems are capable of generation up to 1,000 kwh/kwp, even in the low-lying regions. The export volume of Swiss photovoltaic products continues to be high and is estimated to more than MCHF in 2009.

15 Solar energy Yearly sum of solar electricity generated by 1kWp photovoltaic system with optimallyinclined modules. The correct exposure to the solar rays of the photovoltaic modules represents a key factor to the purpose of getting optimal performances from the plant in terms of production of electric energy. South regions are clearly advantaged in solar energy production because of the higher level of sun irradiation during the year. Especially the regions of Valais, Grisons and Glaris.

22 Wind energy Wind energy production By the end of 2012, in Switzerland operated 32 wind turbines with a total power of 49 MW, generating about 88 GWh of electricity. Share of wind energy in EU % In Switzerland, there is plenty of potential for developing wind energy too: it would be possible for facilities that meet the stringent criteria of Switzerland's wind energy concept to produce around 600 GWh of electricity per annum by % Switzerland EU (27)

About 40% of the energy potential of biomass is presently being used in Switzerland. In 2010, biomass and wastes energy production reached about 1553 ktoe ( GWh), equal to 31.27% of total renewable energy production Biomass&Wastes production (1000 toe) in 2010 The Biomass-biogas energy production target for is GWh.

38 Geothermal Geothermal Energy In Switzerland there are no geothermal power installations and no electricity is produced from geothermal sources at present. Nevertheless, the Deep Mining project in Basel intends to build a facility capable to generate 3 MW of electricity and 20 MW of thermal production, capable as well to provide electricity to approximately 10,000 households and to provide heat to 2,700 households. In 1996 started the preliminary work on this pilot project on the initiative of, and with the support of, the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The utilization of geothermal energy for direct-use has enhanced considerably, mostly with the installations of geothermal heat pumps (GHP). The second major utilization of geothermal energy is with thermal spas and wellness facilities. The percentage of the different uses in terms of energy use (GWh) is 73.9% for HE and horizontal loops, 13.6% for balneology, 10.4% using shallow groundwater, 1.0% using geostructures (energy piles), 0.6% using deep aquifers which includes using tunnel water. On Riehen, Canton Basel city, is situated one geothermal district heating. The introduction of a feed-in tariff and a risk coverage system have been the latest modifications in governmental policy in 2008.

The total for Switzerland is 1,060.6 MWt and 7,714.6 TJ/year Government aid for geothermal power production (for 20 years) Feed in tariff covering cost in Switzerland Fixed Tariff: 40 Rp./kWh electricity, or 33.3 ct/kwh electricity (exchange rate 1 = 1.2 CHF) Risk insurance: the government will reimburse up to 50% of drilling costs in case of low productivity
