POLIZERO addresses the topic of efficient policies for promoting the energy transition towards a decarbonised Swiss energy system in a European context. POLIZERO analyses existing and future policy mixes to promote low-carbon solutions, and, supported by involving stakeholders on policy evaluation, it employs a prospective quantitative analysis with an advanced European energy system modelling framework (JRC-EU-TIMES) combined with a policy analysis tool (TEEM-AIM) to identify Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways for Switzerland. The project explicitly considers different future European policies and energy system configurations, sectoral, and regional policy interdependencies. The outcome of this project contributes to the current dialogue on the energy transition in Switzerland, and on how Switzerland can achieve its CO2 mitigation targets while being embedded in European energy markets, which also face an equally ambitious emissions reduction target.
