Competitive tenders for electricity efficiency measures

Swiss Federal Office of Energy

Key facts

With the “competitive tenders for electricity efficiency measures” (ProKilowatt), the Confederation promotes measures to reduce electricity consumption in companies, public bodies and private households. The Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) is responsible for implementing ProKilowatt. The tenders have been taking place since 2010. Since then, the funding has risen to around CHF 50 million per year. In auctions, the funding is awarded to those measures within the framework of individual projects and programmes that have applied for the lowest promotion funding per kilowatt hour (kWh) saved.
