Mailing address:Centre for Energy Policy and Economics CEPE
Research Focus of the Institute:The Centre for Energy Policy and Economics (CEPE) was established in 1999 as an interface between technology, economy and society. Through its national and international interdisciplinary research and advisory activities, CEPE points out opportunities, risks, and obstacles related to developments in energy technology and industry; supports necessary transformations; and contributes to energy innovations in business and technology. CEPE seeks to improve the bases for decisionmaking by business and government with analysis of energy economics and policy issues, the drafting of energy policy options and scientific analysis of energy policy programs. In addition, CEPE educates students at the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Zürich and Lausanne by providing a curriculum of lectures and seminars as well as colloquia on energy policy and economics.
