The 2020-2030 Energy Master Plan has been adopted this week by the Council of State of Geneva. Through a program of concrete actions co-constructed with all the partners and consulted by the circles concerned, the Energy Master Plan will make it possible to accelerate the energy transition of the canton.

In order to meet the challenges of the climate emergency, the Council of State adopted on December 2, 2020 the Energy Master Plan (PDE) for the period 2020-2030. This action program resolutely commits Geneva to the energy transition, with the ambition of drastically reducing energy consumption – especially of fossil origin – and enhancing the region’s renewable resources. The Canton is thus giving itself the means to offer the Geneva population a sustainable future and a better quality of life through the development of our local, sustainable and clean energies.

A program of concrete actions to accelerate the energy transition

Through its program of concrete actions, the PDE sets the course to reach society at 2000 W by 2050: the aim is to divide energy consumption by 3.5 and, at the same time, to triple the share of renewables in the cantonal energy mix. This ambitious vision is consistent with the cantonal climate objectives: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2030 (compared to 1990) and achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

The PDE operates the objectives of the energy policy: by 2030, its priority orientations are to end fossil heating in Geneva, to renovate the building stock of the canton on a massive scale, to develop thermal networks to meet heating needs. and building cooling, and to enhance the territory’s potential in terms of renewable energies. To implement its actions, the PDE includes 28 action sheets drawn up with all the stakeholders.
