Institute of Sustainable Energy
Since Switzerland’s major energy transition challenges cannot be addressed by solutions emerging solely from a single area of expertise, HES-SO Valais/Wallis decided to create the Institute of Sustainable Energy to provide a multidisciplinary response to these issues. This Institute brings together people from different Schools of HES-SO Valais/Wallis, thus merging technical, numerical, economic, and social skills.
The activities of the Institute of Sustainable Energy include the production, management, and storage of renewable energies, the management of multi-energy grids, and electric mobility. All addressed issues and developed solutions include a strong assessment of their environmental impact.
