Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis (LEA)

LEA is an interdepartmental laboratory of the Nuclear Energy and Safety Research Department (NES) and the General Energy Research Department (ENE). It unites specific analytical research concerning all energy systems, that is nuclear, fossil and (new) renewable. It is led by Dr. Stefan Hirschberg, attached to NES in all administrative matters and monitored by a Steering Committee consisting of Dr. Martin A. Zimmermann (NES Deputy Dept. Head) and Prof. Alexander Wokaun (ENE Dept. Head).

In cooperation also with external partners (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ) and many others), LEA carries out energy systems analyses relevant for energy policy issues as well as safety analyis based on Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) and focused on Human Reliability Assessment (HRA).

The LEA areas of activities fall into three main areas:
