Abstract

The NRP70 project ‘The Future of Swiss Hydropower: An Integrated Economic Assessment of Chances, Threats and Solutions’ (HP Future) addresses the challenges Swiss Hydropower faces in the changing electricity market environment. In particular it aims to answer three main research questions: 1. What are short-term operational options for Swiss HP to cope with the volatile market situation? 2. What are long-term investment options for Swiss HP and how can uncertainty be accounted? 3. What are the regional impacts from a comprehensive sustainability perspective? The project started in fall 2015 and is projected to be finished early 2018. This interim project report aims to provide a short summary on the main findings so far.
