Who we are
Energy Economics Group - Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis - Paul Scherrer Institute
The Energy Economics group in the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis (LEA) at PSI contributes to understanding of energy technology development and identifies policy strategies for the realisation of sustainable energy systems at Swiss and global levels. This is accomplished by developing and analysing scenarios of future energy system development and technology change using detailed energy-system models. Energy scenarios provide a means to explore future uncertainty of the energy system and to test alternative strategies to identify robust approaches for technology and policy development. Energy systems approaches combine a high level of technology detail with a systems approach which represents the coevolution of energy production, conversion, transmission and distribution, and end-use in an integrated way.
Technoeconomics of Energy Systems laboratory - University of Piraeus Research Center
The University of Piraeus Research Center (UPRC) provides administration and technological support to European and National projects carried out by the staff of the University of Piraeus (UNIPI). The Technoeconomics of Energy Systems laboratory (TEESlab) is the energy modelling, strategy and policy analysis laboratory of UNIPI, with a focus on transitions pathways towards a low-carbon economy. A collection of transdisciplinary approaches, methods and tools are available for the quantitative and the qualitative assessment of critical issues governing the future evolution of the energy system.
