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.

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

Die Solaranlage einfahren, wenn es stürmt oder schneit, und wieder ausfahren, wenn die Sonne scheint. So funktioniert das Solarfaltdach der Firma dhp technology. Über den offenen Klärbecken der ARA Chur entstand die erste Anlage. Dafür gab’s den Watt d’Or 2019. 12 Kläranlagen wurden seither so überdacht, neun weitere Projekte sind bestellt und über 30 in Planung. Und auch in Deutschland stösst das Solarfaltdach auf grosses Interesse. 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).

At first glance, one would hardly believe that a simple water tank could be enough to bring heat from summer into winter. But in fact, a storage tank with a volume of 12 cubic meters or more is enough to supply an apartment with heat and hot water from solar collectors for the entire winter. Because such storage solutions have been relatively expensive up to now, scientists from the universities in Rapperswil and Lucerne have been searching for ways to make the technology more economical in two research projects.

Geothermal energy is already used intensively in Switzerland, mainly by means of geothermal probes that collect heat from the ground to provide heat and hot water for buildings. However, the heat from deeper layers of the earth is hardly used: If one were to drill 1000 m and deeper, one would come across an enormous heat reservoir that can be used for heating purposes, industrial processes and electricity production.

Energy efficiency is at the core of the transition towards a more resilient and sustainable energy system. It takes innovative solutions to reduce industrial energy consumption to a level where the remaining demand can be supplied from renewable sources.

In response to this challenge, the SFOE research programme on Industrial Processes dedicates one million Swiss Francs to a competitive call for application-oriented research proposals in the area of industrial energy efficiency. Expecting that successful projects will deliver publicly assessable results with the potential to generate significant positive impacts. Weiterlesen
