The Swiss Chapter of the IEEE Power and Energy Society is delighted to invite you the workshop

Energy Strategy Approved – What now?

Last year the Swiss approved the Energy Strategy 2050. With this vote, the Swiss said yes to the support of more renewable generation and no to nuclear energy. While the objectives are clear and policies have been formulated, it is not entirely clear at this point what the consequences will be on the operation of the grid, the reliability of the system and the interactions with the neighboring countries. This workshop is devoted to discussing these questions from the policy, the economic and the technical perspectives.

We pleased to invite to you an interesting workshop on one of the most fundamental questions facing society today.

Date: April 10, 2018

Time: 9:00 to 16:00

Location: ETH Zürich,  Alumni Pavillon (MM C78.1)
