Having dodged most of the fuel-driven surge in inflation plaguing its neighbours, Switzerland is moving ahead with plans to boost its energy security and lock in tame power prices - but only reluctantly. Switzerland's focus on hydropower, which Energy Minister Simonetta Sommaruga calls "the backbone" of its electricity production, has helped shelter the country compared with others from soaring oil and gas costs, but it is far from immune. Sommaruga believes the Swiss have been woken up to a need to wean themselves off fossil fuels by the European power crisis since Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and by the risk of energy rationing in a worst-case scenario this winter.

The inclusion of electric vehicles into the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) would be one of the largest changes to the program since it began more than a decade ago. The EPA is expected to send the proposal, which will address mandates for after 2022, to the White House for approval by the end of next week, two of the sources said.
