Publication by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy: “Precision tool for energy policy”

With the decarbonization and decentralization of energy production, Switzerland faces two mammoth tasks in the coming years and decades. The restructuring of the energy supply requires political and investment decisions. The stakeholders in the energy sector act based on scenarios that show possible developments. Scientists at ETH Zurich have now created the modeling platform Nexus-e. It enables to create scenarios for the electricity sector and, in particular, also includes economic and grid-related issues.
