E-CUBE release a study about Industry decarbonization through electrification

E-CUBE is publishing a new study “Industry decarbonization through electrification - Potential and impacts of electrification on the Swiss industrial landscape“.

This study was conducted by Kevin Pahud as a research project at the E-CUBE Strategy Consultants office in Lausanne in partnership with Rachid Cherkaoui from EPFL.

Here's a glimpse of the key insights for Switzerland's industry:

  • Switzerland’s industry can be electrified up to 73%, with the highest potential in low-temperature sectors

  • A significant share of electrification can be profitably achieved with mature technologies, boasting a negative abatement cost.

  • The success of industry electrification is highly dependent on electricity competitiveness against alternatives and the cost of CO2.

  • Industrial heat pumps, the backbone of electrification, could save up to 7 TWh of fossil fossil fuels.

While the aim of this paper is to explore the potential of electrification as a decarbonization strategy for Switzerland’s industry, other solutions, notably biomethane, hydrogen, SMR, and CCUS could also be part of the solution.
