Future market design for renewable energy in Switzerland
The Swiss Energy Strategy 2050 (ES2050) pursues a step-by-step transformation of the energy system towards a secure and cost-efficient supply of renewable energy sources. While the first set of measures is already in force, this study assesses the existing energy and climate policy from an economic perspective and discusses possibilities for further measures. Therefore, an overview of different market design stuctures that support the ES2050 is provided. In particular, the study examines the effectiveness and efficiency of the existing measures and proposed alternatives in terms of the three policy goals : expansion of renewable electricity production, security of supply and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
