Assessing sustainability in practice
How sustainable are today’s plans for future energy systems? Watch Patricia Holm, Frank Krysiak and Paul Burger analyse this question using the example of Swiss Energy Perspectives.
The Swiss Energy Perspectives are a step towards sustainability. However, they lack aspects that are essential for the transition to a sustainable energy system. These aspects include:
- a look at environmental problems beyond climate change
- a tracking of impacts on intragenerational distribution
- a set of goals broad enough to cover essential aspects of sustainable development.
Get some insights on the Swiss Energy Perspectives on the website of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.
