Completed research project: Virtual competition for energy-efficient mobility
What encourages people to go on foot or by bike, to use public transportation or to utilise other innovative forms of mobility more frequently? To answer this question, a team of researchers in NRP 71 developed the “GoEco!” app.
Completed research project: Tax incentives to reduce energy consumption
By studying the effects of Basel’s electricity levy, researchers at the University of Lucerne investigated how tax incentives work in practice and how their impact on energy consumption could be increased.
Completed research project: Smart urban freight logistics
Energy efficient and CO2-free urban logistics will be achievable in the future. A substantial contribution to the reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions will be possible by 2050.
Active Housing: Architectural competition for students
The Laboratory of Architecture and Sustainable Technologies (LAST) of the EPFL is inviting students to take part in a competition that allows for the application of the findings of the NRP 70 project “Next generation photovoltaics”.
Significant energy-saving potential identified in households of elderly people
If elderly people can be motivated to reduce the size of their living space or implement energy renovation measures in their homes, this can contribute up to 4% of the annual reduction objectives stipulated under Energy Strategy 2050 in the area of space heating. This share should be increased by means of targeted programmes.

   L'éléctricité au quotidien

Toutes nos actions du quotidien, telles que préparer un repas, communiquer ou se déplacer, dépendent de sources énergétiques. Dans une brochure qui vise le grand public, des chercheurs de l’Université de Genève et de Lausanne présentent les résultats d’un projet réalisé dans le cadre du Programme national de recherche "Gérer la consommation d'énergie" (PNR 71) du Fonds national suisse (FNS) - sous la codirection de Marlyne Sahakian (Université de Genève) et Suren Erkman (Université de Lausanne), en collaboration avec Béatrice Bertho (Université de Lausanne).
