The aim of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research – Supply of Electricity (SCCER-SoE) is to carry out innovative and sustainable research in the areas of geoenergy and hydropower.
The SCCER-SoE researches, develops, and tests new technologies and optimizes existing infrastructures for energy production in the future. Working in close cooperation with the industry, the SCCER-SoE creates innovative research units, establishes technology platforms, invests in laboratories, and coordinates national as well as international research projects. These are financed by a number of different sources.
As a national network, the SCCER-SoE brings together expertise from 25 Swiss scientific institutions, industrial enterprises, and federal agencies. Its activities are undertaken in coordination with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The SCCER-SoE is financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Commission for Technology and Innovation.
