Switzerland is going for renewable energy:
In 2011, the Federal Council and Parliament decided that Switzerland is to withdraw from the use of nuclear energy on a step-by-step basis. The existing five nuclear power plants are to be decommissioned when they reach the end of their safe service life, and will not be replaced by new ones.
Essentially, the Federal Council's new strategy focuses on the consistent exploitation of the existing energy efficiency potentials and on the balanced use of the potentials of hydropower and new renewable energy sources.
During the other European Countries will decrease their compensation for electricity fed into the grid, the compensation in Switzerland will be guaranteed over 20 years through the government.
Within the Eastern European Countries a change of the governments also will change their compensations, for example Romania. This also will happen by arrangements already signed for running plants.
In addition Switzerland is reckoned politically and economically as one of the most stable countries in the world with one of the highest standard of living.
