Procurement of electrical energy

Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics

Key facts

Ever since the electricity market was partially opened up in 2009, the FOBL, as a major consumer, has had the possibility of procuring power on the free market. Unlike energy, the costs for grid utilisation are still levied by the monopolized grid operators. The SFAO’s aim is to use the audit to assess whether the FOBL procures power in an economical manner and complies with the ecological principles of the Federal Council, and whether there is sufficient security of supply with regard to power.
