Work Package 2: Integration and Development
What we do:
Work Package 2 connects different energy research communities from modelling and Social Science and Humanities in order to work collaboratively on policy-relevant energy questions in Switzerland. The WP is lead by Evelina Trutnevyte (UNIGE) and Frank Krysiak (UNIBAS).
1. Provide a service to the Swiss energy research community by developing a publicly accessible toolbox of proven methods to enable bidirectional learning and collaboration between modelling and SSH communities.
2. Carry out two large-scale integration activities with Swiss modelers and SSH community: A longitudinal activity of developing harmonized scenario narratives for Swiss energy research and an evidence inter-comparison on a selected energy policy question.
3. Provide seed resources to develop and validate new integrated models (merging approach) that are from the very beginning able to better represent the co-evolution of the Swiss energy system and society.
