"An electricity agreement is essential for both – Europe and Switzerland – in terms of security of supply. Both sides must take this very seriously," said Johannes Teyssen, Chairman of Alpiq’s Board of Directors, in an interview with Carolin Roth at the Swiss Economic Forum in Interlaken. The possible loss of supply security is rightly perceived as the greatest crisis for society and the economy. Because: "Modern life in a digital age is not possible without a secure and stable power supply." The increase of renewable energies to secure the security of supply is a social task. "If society is not prepared to allow investments in pv, windparks and hydroelectric now and immediately, things will get tight at some point."
