SCCER-SoE Annual Conference 2017

Hydropower and Geo-Energy in Switzerland – Challenges and Perspectives

14 and 15 September 2017 in Birmensdorf (ZH), Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL

After a successful start into the SCCER-SoE’s second phase, the recently confirmed revision of the Energy Act comes at the right time. It provides a solid ground for fresh ideas and new developments in hydropower and geo-energy in Switzerland. Besides reflection on these evolutions, the annual conference will present insights into our research highlights, give the floor to views from outside, put a strong emphasis on the project posters, and offer many opportunities for personal exchange.
