The Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) claims 80% of the electricity consumed in Switzerland is renewable. The SFOE’s calculation is based on the electricity Switzerland buys. But as Elliott Romano, a researcher at environmental science institute at Geneva University, explains, the electricity Switzerland buys is not the electricity that it consumes. According to Romano, in 2021, the electricity Switzerland consumed was 45% hydro, 5% solar, 33% nuclear and 11% fossil fuel. The electricity that Switzerland buys is not what Switzerland pulls from the grid.
