Yes, most likely, especially for electricity. The energy transition should lead to an increase in energy prices for two main reasons: the growing proportion of renewable agents in the energy mix, and the expected increase in the price of carbon (CO2 emissions) which will make fossil agents more expensive.
There are no miracle cures that alone would drastically reduce our consumption. But a set of simple gestures, based on the principle of the small streams that make the big rivers, can lead to substantial savings.
Through energy efficiency measures, Switzerland hopes to reduce its final energy consumption by almost 45% by 2050. However, a paradoxical phenomenon known as the “rebound effect” could well wipe out a significant part of this effort, unless appropriate accompanying measures are implemented in parallel.
