Energy System Integration Platform

Step by step between now and the year 2050, the Swiss energy system is set to be overhauled. The federal government’s package of measures known as Energy Strategy 2050 provides for a shift away from nuclear power. Energy consumption is expected to be reduced. New renewable sources such as solar energy, wind power, and energy from biomass should be expanded, and existing resources will be better utilised. With the Energy System Integration or ESI Platform, the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI offers research and industry a experimental platform where promising approaches can be tested in all their complex connections and interrelations.
