The research programme

The principal objectives of energy research in Switzerland are to ensure a secure and sustainable energy supply, reinforce Switzerland's position as a pioneer in the area of technological development, and maintain the high quality of Swiss research. In the public sector, energy research is governed by the energy research concept of the federal government, which is published every four years by the Swiss Federal Energy Research Commission (CORE).

For the buildings sector, CORE has formulated the following quantitative objectives for the period up to 2050:

  • Elimination of the use of fossil fuels in heating systems in existing and new buildings
  • Reduction of energy consumption in existing and new buildings by 50 percent
