Jahrestagung «Versorgungssicherheit Schweiz»

September 9, 2020 - Postfinance Arena , Bern, Switzerland

Die Schweizer Bevölkerung hat mit der Energiestrategie 2050 den schrittweisen Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie beschlossen. Der Ausbau der erneuerbaren Energien kommt aber nur schleppend voran. Viele Bürgerinnen und Bürger fürchten sich vor einer Versorgungslücke.

Die Jahrestagung des energie-cluster.ch geht diesem Thema am 9. September 2020 in Bern auf den Grund. Experten von Universitäten, aus der Forschung und von Unternehmen legen dar, wie die Schweiz den
Umbruch schaffen kann.

2020 Annual Conference SCCER BIOSWEET

September 10, 2020 - Centre Général Guisan, Pully, Switzerland

The SCCER BIOSWEET organizes its last Annual Conference on September 10, 2020 at the Centre Général Guisan in Pully (near Lausanne), Switzerland. The conference will be held in partnership with the IEA Bioenergy Task 37 (Biogas). The program is available here

Following the latest recommendations from the Swiss Federal Council, it was decided to maintain the conference in person. Nevertheless, the Centre Général Guisan takes the sanitary recommendations very seriously and is currently limiting the maximum number of participants to 50 people to ensure an appropriate distance between the participants. In case sanitary and international travel restrictions would still apply in September, they will also offer the option to follow the conference by a live webcast so that participants unable to attend in person may have an alternative.

36th Swiss Electrochemistry Symposium - Seasonal Energy Storage: The Role of Electrochemistry

September 16, 2020 - Kultur & Kongresshaus, Aarau, Switzerland

One of the challenges in electricity generation scenarios with a large share of inherently intermittent sources, such as wind and solar power, is the storage of energy over long periods of time. Especially here in Europe, a large surplus of electricity is expected in summer, whereas periods of low electricity supply in winter have to be adequately bridged.

The seven distinguished speakers of this year’s Swiss Electrochemistry Symposium will take you on a journey to the science and technology of electrochemical devices in the context of seasonal energy storage.

Due to the current situation around the Corona Virus, the Symposium has been postponed from April 29, 2020 to Wednesday, September 16, 2020. All previous registrations remain valid for the new date. It is are also planned to offer a web-based participation, the event is going to be streamed.

Registration is still open: https://www.psi.ch/ec20

The 9th and final SCCER Heat and Electricity Storage Symposium

October 21, 2020 - Kultur & Kongresshaus, Aarau, Switzerland
(du
e to the Corona situation a lifestream of this event is planned as well)

The large volume of electricity production capacities from the fluctuating sources, wind and solar, installed in recent years is the first step towards a CO2 and nuclear waste free energy future. Nevertheless, to transform this vision to reality, a strong focus needs to be set on storage for the sake of grid stability and independence.

The SCCERs have reached their foreseen end and this conference will present a summary of the results obtained in the past seven years, including the dissemination of the Storage Handbook, a White Book summarizing the results of 7 years research.

Please save the date, more details to follow.

7 years SCCER Mobility - review, synthesis & outlook

November 23, 2020 - ETH Zurich (tentative)

As 7 years of SCCER Mobility slowly draw to an end, you are invited to this conference to present you a synthesis of the competence center, review the most relevant research results of each capacity area and conclude with an outlook on important future research topics. It will be an opportunity for the academic and industry partners to discuss the achieved results, establish new collaborations and identify future research needs in the fields of mobility and energy. As in previous years, there will be keynotes, poster sessions and the Best Poster Award.
