The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (AEE) division is the competence centre for efficient energy use and the use of renewable forms of energy. In these areas it defines basic principles and develops new measures and instruments. It is also responsible for coordinating the implementation and enforcement of the applicable legislation. In the area of training and further education, AEE secures the further development of technologies and know-how transfer in practice. The SwissEnergy programme, with which the SFOE - in close cooperation with the cantons, municipalities, trade and industry and environmental and consumer organisations - is making a specific contribution towards the implementation of Switzerland's energy and climate policies, is an important area of activity of this section. SwissEnergy is campaigning for the increased use of renewable energy, as well as for efficient energy use in trade and industry, the services sector, mobility, buildings and electrical appliances.
