The latest update of Nexus-e
Dr. Marius Schwarz outlines the impact of neighboring countries on the Swiss energy transition – check out the insights in our interactive results viewer!
At this year’s Energy Research Talks Disentis 2022, Dr. Marius Schwarz addressed the question of how dependent is the Swiss energy transition on developments in its neighboring countries? Check out the scenarios in our interactive results viewer! The three key statements: Expansion targets for new renewable energies (i.e., solar, wind, biomass) are not achieved in the scenarios – how much Switzerland falls below the targets
Last week, Prof. Gabriela Hug presented the new scenarios that we developed using the Nexus-e platform at the Energy Week 2021. On the topic “Climate Neutral Switzerland 2050: What Energy System Do We Need?” Gaby – project lead of Nexus-e – highlighted three key learnings: Solar power is responsible for by far the largest addition to electricity generation capacity in Switzerland. Precisely because we see
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.
