Reducing energy consumption, through new ways of living and working, efficient mobility behavior or a changed environmental awareness – this is the goal of the SWEET call “Living&Working”. To this end, the two selected consortia SWICE and LANTERN are developing, implementing and testing new approaches, methods and technologies in so-called „Living Labs“. Joëlle Mastelic, professor at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland and coordinator of LANTERN, and Marilyne Andersen, professor at EPFL and coordinator of SWICE, tell us where the focus of their research lies and what is distinctive about research in Living Labs.

How much energy do buildings consume per canton, per municipality? How big is the heating demand? How much electricity did Switzerland consume yesterday? How many Smart Meters are installed per municipality? In terms of data freely available on the energy sector – so called Open Energy Data -, Switzerland has a lot of catching up to do compared to other countries. Why is that? What are the obstacles?

From an energy perspective, windows have an opposite effect depending on the time of year: In winter, they allow solar heat into the interior and thus reduce heating demand. In summer, on the other hand, solar heat gain is often undesirable because it can lead to increased cooling demand. Blinds and other adjustable exterior solar shading systems serve to keep summer heat out of interior spaces. Weiterlesen

People who fuel up with diesel or gasoline sometimes don’t even know that it contains biofuel. This is because small portions of biofuel do not have to be declared. Biogenic fuels account for almost 7% (diesel) and nearly 3% (gasoline) of the fuel sold in Switzerland. In the coming years, they could make a growing contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the mobility sector. This is thanks to their biogenic origin, but also to efficiency improvements in adapted engines. This is shown in a new study by a team of researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ) and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research (Empa).

Ende 2018 befasste sich das Bundesamt für Energie (BFE) in einem Dialogpapier mit der Digitalisierung im Energiesektor. Dieses identifizierte Cyber-Security als ein fundamentales Zukunftsthema für die nachhaltige Weiterentwicklung der Digitalisierung im Energiesektor.

Das Digital Innovation Office (DO) des BFE arbeitet an Grundlagen im Bereich Cyber, aus denen allfällige Massnahmen für eine zukünftig digitale und weiterhin sichere Stromversorgung abgeleitet werden können. Dazu gehört auch die Cyber-Security-Studie, deren Ergebnisse nun vorliegen.
