"Basel renewable - for a secure and affordable energy provision"
By supplementing § 31 of the cantonal constitution, the "Basel renewable" initiative calls for the creation of appropriate legal conditions to achieve a sustainable, renewable energy provision in the canton of Basel-Stadt by 2050. This is to be achieved through incentives and regulations that are socially, environmentally and economically compatible. The initiative was launched by a multi-partisan initiative committee consisting of, among others, Grand Councils of the Green Party, BastA!, FDP, SP, LDP, SVP and GLP, and was supported by the Ökostadt Basel, the tenants' association, the Unia Nordwestschweiz and Pro Velo.
