Impacts of climate change on critical infrastructure

Malfunctions in energy infrastructures can have serious consequences for the economy, society and critical resources. In this project, the vulnerability of the energy system to technical, natural and societal hazards will be studied. Hazards influenced by climate change are of particular interest.

Joint activity with SWEET

The impact of climate change on critical infrastructures is being investigated in a project being carried out as a joint activity of NCCS-Impacts and the SWEET funding programme of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE).

The call for proposals «Critical Infrastructures, Climate Change, and Resilience of the Swiss Energy System» was therefore launched on 6 July 2023 via the SWEET funding programme. The application deadline for pre-proposals was on 18 October 2023. The consortium is expected to be announced in July 2024 and start its research work in October 2024.
