Swissgas President – “sees parallels between the threat of an energy shortage”

For Swissgas President André Dosé – sees parallels between the threat of an energy shortage

The former head of Swissair gives the Confederation bad marks. He sees parallels between the threat of an energy shortage and the collapse of the former national airline.

In both cases, it turned out that the political system is not equipped to deal with crises.

The typical Swiss procedure, which requires all decisions to receive the widest possible support, does not work, adds the president of Swissgas and the regional gas distribution company Gasverbund Mittelland.

The industry is increasingly facing limits in the financing of its operations. With such a spike in prices, suppliers are currently demanding astronomical financial guarantees for additional gas delivery options.

For André Dosé, Bern must provide state guarantees to ensure gas supply.

For the president of Swissgas, André Dosé, it will take very little next winter to achieve a gas shortage. He criticized the role of the Confederation.

For Swissgas President André Dosé, it will take very little next winter to achieve a shortage in gas supply. Switzerland does not realize how dangerous the situation is, he believes.

With the Confederation’s Energy Strategy 2050, which is “built on sand”, Switzerland is largely causing the crisis itself, says André Dosé in an interview published Thursday by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.

The war in Ukraine is now pushing the country to rethink it dramatically.

We need to look at everything that can help close the energy gap and reduce our dependence on foreign countries – from encouraging indigenous natural gas to geothermal energy.
