SCCER - Supply of Electricity Phase I
The Swiss Competence Center on Supply of Electricity seeks to develop fundamental research and innovative solutions in the domains of GeoEnergies (Deep Geothermal Energy and CO2 sequestration) and HydroPower, with cooperation partners from ETH schools and research centres, Universities, key industry partners, federal offices and services.
The Energy Economics group of PSI will contribute through the establishment and maintenance of a Global Observatory of Electricity Resources, providing a comprehensive analytical framework for technology characterization and trend identification that can be applied in a consistent manner across a broad portfolio of current and future technologies. While the SCCER is focussed on geo-energies and hydropower, the observatory has a much broader coverage, including new renewables (e.g. solar photovoltaic, solarthermal, wind onshore and offshore, biomass, geothermal, wave and tidal), fossil energy carriers (with and without CCS), nuclear energy and consideration of co-generation.
