Climate change has no borders. Our changing climate affects everyone on the planet, although some regions are feeling the consequences more than others. The measures we must take to mitigate climate change sometimes pose a dilemma: how can we reduce the impact of climate change while maintaining a sufficiently comfortable lifestyle for people? Let us here introduce Swiss technologies aiming to reduce the impact of climate change.
Until very recently, the pursuit of energy access for all has relied on centralised heavy infrastructure like power plants and distribution grids. Digital and other technologies are changing this, and more local, flexible solutions are now beginning to spread to the four corners of the world. We are seeing the emergence of decentralised storage solutions, microgrids and energy management platforms for connected devices. Working with Leclanché, one of the world’s leading battery storage solutions companies, Switzerland is in a position to offer solutions like these.
