First national scenario benchmarking workshop, 17th of January, 2019, ETH Zurich

The Joint Activity Scenarios and Modeling (JASM) brings together modelling teams from all eight Swiss Competence Centers for Energy Research to generate and analyse scenarios for the future Swiss energy system. JASM exploits and combines the capabilities of the different models to analyse the objectives of the Swiss Energy strategy: to reduce GHG emissions while phasing-out nuclear power plants. We aim at an improved understanding of future configurations of the energy system that allow to reach near-zero emissions in 2050, the transitional measures required to get there (e.g. policies and technologies), and the impact on economy and society.

The scope of the workshop is to present and discuss first results of the overarching scenarios with the research community and representatives from industry and politics, and to get valuable feedback to shape the second half of the JASM project.
