Swissgrid sees advantages of the electricity agreement

The national grid operator Swissgrid welcomes the EU negotiating mandate adopted by the Federal Council. This is an important step towards strengthening grid and supply security.

Legal certainty and Switzerland's ability to help shape the European electricity system would also be strengthened, according to a statement on Friday.

The electricity agreement makes an important contribution to the secure and efficient operation of the transmission grid. It regulates cooperation between Switzerland and the EU in the electricity sector and helps to ensure that Swiss consumers have sufficient electricity available at all times.

The electricity agreement would also help to improve grid stability. All market participants would also benefit from an electricity agreement.
