Institut für Energietechnik (IET)


The Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research for Heat and Electricity Storage (SCCER HaE) has been installed to do research for energy storage systems since 2014. The program SCCER HaE is managed by the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and is supervised by the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI). In addition to research projects on power-to-methane technologies, the IET Institute for Energy Technology is involved in the following projects:

Joint Activity CEDA 

There are eight different energy research centers within the SCCER program in which different energy demonstrators are build and operated. Within the project "Coherent Energy Demonstrator Assessment" CEDA the research results of the different programs are combined. The researchers who are involved in the operation of the demonstrators create a common basis for the energetic assessment of the different storage and conversion techniques that are studied in the demonstrators. The small-scale demonstrators are defined and compared by this created set of parameters. As a next step the results are upscaled to large plants in order to evaluate the technologies’ impact on the energy strategy 2050.

Joint Activity White Paper on the Perspectives of Power-to-Product (P2X) Technology in Switzerland

The term “P2X” refers to energy conversion technologies that produce either synthetic gases, or fuels, or other power generation products by using an electrochemical or biological process.
The "White Paper" project is intended to systematically analyze the extensive P2X knowledge in Switzerland for the gas market, the mobility sector and the electricity market and to summarize it in one document. A technical, economic and ecological evaluation of the technologies for the Swiss energy market is carried out by the participating research units.
