The latest update of Nexus-e
The Nexus-e team is very pleased to welcome Ludger Leenders and Mengshuo Jia as new members. Ludger Leenders will be responsible for the integration of SecMOD into the Nexus-e framework. Mengshuo Jia will bring in his expertise in power flow modeling. Ludger Leenders studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University in Germany specializing in energy engineering. He earned his master’s degree in 2015 for his thesis on
With the second annual strategy meeting, the Nexus-e team concluded the past fruitful year and discussed questions that are key for the future direction of Nexus-e. In a hybrid format with members joining online and in-person, the team decided that Nexus-e is more than “just” 5 interlinked models but should also act as a modeling infrastructure to new partners. Yesterday, the Nexus-e annual strategy meeting took
Prof. Andre Bardow, full professor for Energy and Process Systems Engineering, joins the Nexus-e team as a Principle Investigator (PI). Andre and his team bring in their rich expertise in energy system modeling and optimization. André Bardow has been full professor for Energy and Process Systems Engineering (EPSE) at ETH Zurich since 2020. In this role, he is partner and coordinator of SWEET PATHFNDR, one
In September 2021, the Energy Data Hackdays will take place for the fourth time at the Hightech Zentrum Aargau. Nexus-e will participate and provide a challenge on identifying key changes in the Swiss energy system on its path to achieve 2050 net-zero decarbonization targets.

This June, the SWEET PATHFNDR (PATHways to an Efficient Future Energy System through Flexibility aND SectoR Coupling) project kicked off. PATHFNDR is a research project that aims to develop and analyse transition pathways for renewable energy integration in Switzerland. It is sponsored by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy’s SWEET programme. As the central tool for the consortium, Nexus-e will provide the scenarios, considering technical,
Steffen Kortmann joined the Power Systems Laboratory (PSL) and the Nexus-e project at ETH Zurich to investigate how investments in solar photovoltaics affect distribution networks in Switzerland. Steffen is an MSc student in Business Administration and Engineering with a focus on Electrical Power Engineering at RWTH Aachen in Germany. He joins Nexus-e for a research project within the IDEA League Research Grant framework. Welcome, Steffen!
