Work package 8

Policy, markets, and finance to scale up renewable systems

Work package leader:Prof. Isabelle Stadelmann-Steffen, Uni Bern

WP8 will investigate the questions on the design of policies, markets, instruments, and other measures to mobilize finance as well as socio-political, community and market acceptance for fostering the uptake of decentralized renewable generation in Switzerland. The foreseen tools include large-scale population survey, cantonal and federal policy analysis, market modeling, and distributional impact analysis in terms of Swiss cantons and municipalities, households from various income groups, key actors in the energy value chain, and gender. WP8 hence bridges the non-technical findings from WP1-WP3 to the national level.
