research scientists at work

A joint program by EPF Lausanne and ETH Zurich, two of Europe's leading science and engineering schools.

Among the potential candidates for a long-term substitution of fossil fuel, power generation by nuclear fission is one of the options with low environmental impact, base-load compatibility, vast fuel reserves and a final energy price that is nearly independent of the price of the raw energy carrier.

Ein Schwarm stromproduzierender «Heizungen» für die Energiewende

Eine zentrale Herausforderung der Energiewende ist es, die schwankende Stromproduktion aus erneuerbaren Quellen auszugleichen. Eine Machbarkeitsstudie zeigt nun für drei Schweizer Kantone auf, wie ein Verbund von Wärme-Kraft-Kopplungsanlagen kurzfristige Engpässe überbrücken und Gebäude mit Strom und Wärme versorgen kann.
