Swiss-Japan Energy Days 2024

Switzerland and Japan face pressing energy and climate challenges. With an anticipated rise in electricity consumption due to electrification and both nations’ reliance on energy imports, strategic realignment towards decarbonization is essential to meet the 2050 net zero emissions target. This event, co-organized by Swissnex in Japan and the Energy Science Center of ETH Zurich, will bring together top academics, startups, industry leaders, and policymakers to discuss innovative energy solutions.
