The Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) has today published a Frontier study, which analyses the suitability of the Swiss market designs to guarantee a continuous secure energy supply in the medium and long-term.
The European electricity market is changing with its increased focus on renewable energy, while coal and power plants are becoming less important in a number of countries. The restructuring of the wider energy system has triggered a debate about secure energy supply, which is particularly relevant for those countries with a clear focus on renewable energy.
The SFOE commissioned Frontier to investigate and evaluate potential market models for the Swiss electricity market,. Special features of the Swiss electricity market are taken into account, such as its very high share of hydroelectric power, whose generation varies greatly depending on the season.
The main findings of the study can be summarised as follows:
Frontier regularly advises public and private clients on market design and energy turnaround issues.
