The SURE Stakeholder Forum is an inclusive body of the project, which shall represent major actors that shape the Swiss energy transition. The involved stakeholders will support the process of scenario formulation and the selection of key assessment indicators. They will also engage in the evaluation of future transition pathways regarding their sustainability and resilience performance.
Initial commitments to participate in the Stakeholder Forum have been received from World Energy Council Switzerland, Verband Schweizerischer Elektrizitätsunternehmen (VSE), Verband der Schweizer Gasindustrie (VSG), Avenergy Suisse, GAZNAT, swisscleantech, City of Zürich, Industrielle Werke Basel (IWB), Basel Agency for Sustainable Energy (BASE), Ticino Cantonal Office of Energy, Ticino Cantonal Office or air, climate and renewable energies, Ticino parliamentary commission on environment, land, planning and energy, Azienda Elettrica Ticinese (AET), ENERTI, and TicinoEnergia.
The holistic scenario analysis performed in SURE will allow to identify of transition pathways that are technically feasible, economically attractive, put a low burden on the environment and are acceptable to relevant stakeholders. As such, the scenario analysis will also generate impact by informing the various stakeholder groups involved in the evaluation process about the interplay of resilience and sustainability objectives and how they can be reconciled with the aims of the Swiss energy and climate strategy.
The members of the Stakeholder Forum are involved through dedicated workshops. The dates of these workshops will be announced soon. The first one – scoping on scenario design and indicator evaluation – will take place in the first quarter of 2022. Interested stakeholders not committed to SURE so far are invited to notify the project management team ().
