Re: Winter Energy Crisis

Deepl translation
Can the use of electric cars be prohibited?

In a severe persistent deficiency situation (escalation level 3), the private use of electric cars can be limited to absolutely necessary trips. The use remains permitted for absolutely necessary trips such as shopping, visits to the doctor and the practice of the profession.
Sounds like what I use my e-car for normally.

And I still see Emil Frey’s showroom in Nyon lit up 24/7. And that doesn’t include the Christmas lights!

Commuting to work? Yes. Go shopping? Yes. Do errands? Yes. So, driving around town with electric vehicle is not restricted at all.

I guess an cheap way to enforce this restriction is to look for plates of other cantons during the weekend and ask questions. But, I guess drivers can always tell a story about helping elder relatives and nothing can be enforced in the end.

So, it's a plan and authorities will rely on the goodwill of people since there is no realistic way to enforce the restriction.

Also there is no way to prove how and where and electric vehicle (EV) was charged - solar roof panels, from 100% renewables (as ours is), in France with 80% nuclear etc.

It’s all part of media/government scare tactics…

In the article I noted that shopping is considered essential.

Maybe some social media advice to tell people to go shopping for food once a week rather than every day, every other day and/or take public transport, bike or walk to get those one or two items they may need during the week?
I get off the highway at Melide on my way to work, and do a quick shop at the Denner. Exit, Denner, Entrance all in a line, maximum efficiency!

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

“It appears that all but one of the roughly 20 loaded crude tankers waiting to cross the straits are carrying Kazakh-origin oil,” one western official involved in the price cap told the Financial Times. “These cargoes would not be subject to the price cap under any scenario, and there should be no change in the status of their insurance from Kazakh shipments in previous weeks or months.”

I'm somewhat sympathetic to Turkey - what if there was an accident and it turns out the oil wasn't from KZ and the insurers refuse to pay? Maybe those saying that there is no risk would then be willing to provide a guarantee?

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

Something about the best country and fairy dust.
Winter is coming: The 'best country in the world' is planning to ban electric cars amid the energy crisis. Is it time to revisit oil stocks? Here are 3 big plays (yahoo.com)

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

Basic media literacy: journalists write articles, editors write headlines.

Quote:
Switzerland — the best country in the world according to a recent analysis from US News & World Report — could shorten store operating hours, lower the thermostats at buildings, and limit the private use of electric cars to “absolutely necessary journeys.”
As discussed couple days ago "absolutely necessary journeys" are: going to work, shopping, etc.

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

They are keeping the water level of the Zurich lake high so that if there is a power crises they will then be able to make extra power at the 2 nearby hydro powerstations on the Limmat river.

The Platzspitzwehr. The levels of the lake in Lake Zurich are not regulated directly at the outflow, but almost two kilometers downstream by the Platzspitz . At the beginning of the 20th century, the level of Lake Zurich fluctuated by up to two meters, which often led to flooding near the shore

the same wankers at my work who talk about saving energy tend to be the same ones who seem unable to work without having an electric heater at their feet (despite the building having central heating.

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

Is this how "lobbying" looks like in a direct democracy country?

AXPO CEO is on a live interview right now on 20min.ch, and it seems THE QUESTION will be asked:

Quote:
20 minutes talks to the Axpo boss about the impending power shortage, renewable energies and whether Switzerland needs a new nuclear power plant
https://www.20min.ch/story/axpo-chri...e-973910757457

I expected more assertive support for a new Atomkraftwerk, but it was more like "fix long-term political and legal support first, and then we're talking".

Re: Winter Energy Crisis

Never let a crisis go to waste

Quote:
Just over half of all Swiss believe that nuclear power plants are important to prevent a shortage of electricity, according to a survey.

Of the 9,000 Swiss residents surveyed by the Sotomo Institute, 55% say nuclear power should be a priority to help resolve an energy crisis. The survey results, published on Monday in the daily Blick, showed that 64% of respondents are opposed to the closure of Swiss nuclear power plants by 2037, as demanded by the Green Party. In addition, 56% are “for or rather in favour” of the rapid construction of new nuclear power plants to secure the country’s electricity supply.
