R&D Projects

The IET Institute for Energy Technology conducts national and international applied research projects and is the center of excellence for the implementation of power-to-methane applications in practice. 

Core competencies include the integration of individual components into a power-to-gas system and the integration of the technology into the existing energy supply. 

The research focuses on technological, economic and ecological issues concerning power-to-gas technologies and the Swiss carbon economy.


The research projects are realized in cooperation with the following institutions:

  • European Union, Horizon 2020 framework programme 
  • Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), SCCER Heat and Electricity Storage
  • Swiss National Science Foundation
  • Companies from industry and energy supply as well as operators of infrastructure facilities
