The "EnergyCom" Senior Executive Conference is the leading independent platform for decision makers of the Swiss energy industry. The interdisciplinary community is made up of energy suppliers and producers, technology companies, value creation partners, investors, science, associations, authorities and politics. The business-to-business platform makes an important contribution to the strategic future shaping of the energy market and energy transition in Switzerland. The high-caliber community is made up of an exclusive circle of personally invited members of boards of directors and management boards, as well as top managers from relevant business partners. The focus is on informal dialogues between the executives and peers. The private conference is media-free. The Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE, EMPA, the ETH Energy Science Center, Association of the Swiss Gas Industry and the trade association Swissmem are actively involved as an expertise partner.

The next EnergyCom will take place on August 28, 2024 at the GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute Ruschlikon.


EnergyCom 2023

Net zero, security of supply and affordability - a trilemma

The Energy Strategy 2050 aims to secure Switzerland's long-term energy supply. Increasing energy efficiency, reducing CO₂ emissions and promoting renewable energies are at the center. However, this goal is accompanied by a trilemma consisting of net zero, security of supply and affordability. 

EnergyCom 2023 brings this trilemma into critical discourse.

The energy world in transition - what narratives for the energy future and implications exist worldwide as well as for Switzerland. And how do the new worlds influence the 'Strategic Infrastructures' in Switzerland. A status quo from the major VSE study 'Energy Future 2050', published at the beginning of 2023, will be introduced into the discussion.

Digital platforms are changing existing business models and creating entirely new ones. The focus is on data infrastructures and information. Questions arise about data protection or data sovereignty and the handling of energy data in the social environment. What needs to be considered in this regard - what will be possible?

To achieve the net-zero target by 2050, it is mainly emissions in the building sector, in transport and in industry that must be comprehensively reduced. Where do we stand, what is feasible and where are the challenges as of 2023?
