The Competence Center for Research in Energy, Society and Transition - CREST contributes to the energy transition in Switzerland by providing detailed, evidence-based recommendations on policies that help to reduce energy demand, foster innovation, and increase the share of renewables in a cost-efficient way. It covers the complete action area “economy, environment, law and behavior” with four lines of research that develop innovative concepts for energy policy, provide an in-depth analysis of drivers and barriers to energy efficiency, produce detailed strategies that help firms and regions in adjusting to the new energy system, and develop novel assessment tools for policies and technological solutions.

The SCCER CREST brings together research groups from almost all major Swiss research institutions and fills important gaps in the research landscape.

It is one of the strongest research centers in this field worldwide, cooperates closely with partners from industry, public administration, and policy consulting, and works together closely with the technical SCCER.
