Federal Energy Research Commission (CORE)

The Federal Energy Research Commission (CORE) acts as consultative body for the Federal Council and the Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC).

It defines the federal energy research concept, reviews and supports Swiss energy research programmes, comments on other energy research activities by the federal government and provides information concerning findings and developments in the area of energy research.

Its definition of priorities in the area of energy research reflects the vision of a 2,000-watt society, a target that will help secure a sustainable energy supply as called for in the "Energy Article" in the Swiss Federal Constitution.

It comprises 15 members who represent the industrial sector, the energy industry, the federal institutes of technology, universities, colleges of technology, the cantons, the National Fund, the Commission for Technology and Innovation and other promotional bodies.
