Swiss Eye Faster Approvals for Wind and Hydro Energy Projects

  • Projects take too long to get realized, government says
  • Switzerland already gets most of its power from hydro dams

Switzerland wants to speed up approval times and cut red tape for hydroelectric-and wind-energy projects.

The government will propose new rules and regulations to simplify the procedure for hydro, wind as well as solar projects and installations, while still maintaining environmental protections.
