Assessing the Feasibility of Scenarios for the Swiss Electricity System
The company Helion, the Swiss industry association Swissolar and National Councilor Jürg Grossen have each developed roadmaps for the Swiss electricity system up to 2050. These scenarios are characterized by a rapid and strong expansion of photovoltaics (PV) to compensate for the phase-out of nuclear energy and to cover a large part of the increasing electricity demand. In this study, we investigate the feasibility of these Roadmaps and compare them with the "Business as usual" ("Weiter Wie Bisher", WWB) scenario of the Energy Perspectives 2050+.
