New project report! Check out our insights on V2G in Switzerland.
Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) – the bidirectional interaction between electric vehicles and the grid – is one way of leveraging the battery capacity to provide flexibility for the electricity system. In a new study, we make a first estimate of the potential impact of V2G on the Swiss electricity system.

Nexus-e is an interconnected energy system modeling platform which aims to facilitate the energy transition in Switzerland by serving as a modeling infrastructure for researchers, students, and industry partners.

Using the Nexus-e platform, we develop pathways for the Swiss energy system and analyze the impact of technological, economic, regulatory, and societal developments.

The Nexus-e platform aims to

  • represent the whole energy system at regional and national scales,
  • combine strengths of top-down and bottom-up modeling approaches to account for complexity and multidisciplinarity in the energy system,
  • be a platform with a modular structure, well-defined interfaces, and transparent assumptions,
  • provide an infrastructure that is continuously used, extended, and improved by researchers from ETH Zurich, other institutions, and industry partners,
  • inform private and public stakeholders on topics concerning the energy transition to support public engagement.

With a current focus on electricity, the Nexus-e platform will include more components of the energy system, including energy supply and use, for example, related to buildings, transportation, or environmental impacts.
