SCCER-SoE - Supply of Electricity (Phase II)

The Swiss Competence Center on Supply of Electricity seeks to develop fundamental research and innovative energy solutions with cooperation partners from ETH schools and research centres, universities, key industry partners, federal offices and services.

The Energy Economics group of PSI contributes through the establishment and maintenance of a global observatory of electricity resources and technologies, providing a comprehensive analytical framework for technology characterization, optimization, and trend identification that can be applied in a consistent manner across a broad range of future energy pathways.
