Crude oil production

Of total oil imports, 56% are made directly in the form of refined products and 44% in the form of crude oil, which is processed in two refineries with quite similar capacities: Cressier (68 000 bbl/d) and Collombey (54 000 bbl/d).

In 2015, 39% of crude oil imports came from Nigeria, 18%...

Power consumption

Electricity consumption rose by an average of 1.3%/year between 2000 and 2010, driven by the residential and services sectors, and then stayed stable until 2013. In 2014, it dropped by 3.1% to 57.5 TWh as a direct result of mild weather, given that heating accounts for around 10% of power...

Renewable in % electricity production

The National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) of 2008 set the target of increasing the share of renewable energy in the total primary energy supply from 16% to 24% in 2020. The Energy Strategy 2050 envisions the renewable energy sources (RES), excluding hydropower, to produce 4.4 TWh in 2020...
