The goal of CoSi (Co-Evolution and Coordinated Simulation of the Swiss Energy System and Swiss Society) is to explore the interactions between political, regulatory and societal frameworks and the evolution of the energy system. This transdisciplinary expertise from the natural sciences, engineering, economics, social sciences and the humanities will be incorporated into simulation models and enable more meaningful scenario analyses to successfully shape the energy transition.

Project Information

The CoSi project aims to delve into the complex interplay between the evolving Swiss energy system and the encompassing political, regulatory, and societal frameworks that influence its development. By adopting a transdisciplinary approach, the project brings together a diverse range of expertise from various fields including the natural sciences, engineering, economics, social sciences, and humanities. This amalgamation of knowledge is instrumental in crafting sophisticated simulation models that reflect the multifaceted nature of the energy transition. These models are designed to facilitate in-depth scenario analyses, providing insights into how different factors interact and influence the energy landscape in Switzerland.

Central to the CoSi project is its focus on co-evolution and coordination, acknowledging that changes in the energy system are not isolated but are intrinsically linked with societal dynamics, policy decisions, and economic considerations. By integrating perspectives from multiple disciplines, the project aims to offer a more holistic understanding of the energy transition process. This comprehensive approach enables stakeholders to anticipate challenges, evaluate the impact of various policies, and make informed decisions to successfully navigate the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient energy system in Switzerland.
