Swiss energy system with a long term perspective focusing on 2035 and 2050.
based on modelling tools and indicator databases
for the evaluation of indicators, as well as future energy pathways and their sustainability and resilience implications and related competing objectives
on Swiss national level and for several regional or topic-focused case studies and develop strategies for the transition towards sustainable and resilient energy systems including roadmaps, strategy documents etc. jointly with corresponding stakeholders.
SURE aims to analyze the sustainability and resilience of Switzerland’s transition to a carbon-free economy by 2050 through an integrated assessment of various dimensions such as environment, natural resources, public health, economics, supply security, and social well-being. The analysis involves a novel analytical framework that utilizes multiple energy models and quantitative tools to develop narratives of long-term pathways and disruptive events that can affect the energy transition. These storylines have been developed based on the status-quo of knowledge and modelling expertise without assigning any preference or likelihood. Four different storylines and disruptive events are developed to assess the system’s performance across sustainability and resilience indicators. Shock scenarios are used to assess the impact of sudden disruptive events on the energy system.
