The Swiss Federal Council prepares an alternative energy-saving bill if lack of gas during the winter in the country. The maximum temperature in closed environments should be 12 degrees and the maximum water heating allowed, of 60 degrees. Some public spaces and swimming pools must also be closed.

“Violations of the country’s supply law are always misdemeanors, even crimes, and must be prosecuted,” explains the spokesman for the country’s Department of Economics, Markus Spörndli. The project provides for punishments for those who disrespect the limits imposed by the State, ranging from fines to imprisonment.

However, the police will not have the role of “door-to-door”. “But it will be able to do spot checks,” Economy Minister Guy Parmelin said at a press conference last week.

Measures should be adapted to the severity of the shortage situation. “The real goal is that they don’t need to be implemented,” Parmelin concluded.
