Swiss Energy Balance
Energy of Distribution


The goal of this project is to evaluate the cost of energy transactions between Cantons comparing their energy consumption and production. We want to simulate the economical impact related to the geographical distribution of production vs consumption.

We already found a database containing production/consumption values per Cantons and we are in the process of creating the visualisation

Unfortunately,we only found aggregated production data and we would like to differentiate the sources of production, so if anyone has any ideas/data please let us know!

We are also looking for ideas on how to model the price of infrastructure related to geographies of production and consumption. Our first idea would be to set a coefficient dependant on the geographical distance between the centres of each canton.

Energy of Distribution

Inefficient storage and transmission of electricity and fuels is a massive drain on the planet's resources. Open markets and smarter uses of data from a diversity of players will create an ecosystem where we have a chance to take what we need, and only use what we take. Intelligent systems that uses algorithms and the latest data science can make the difference not only in terms of cost savings, but also in preventing blackouts and maximizing the potential of electric transportation. This is a relatively unexplored area so far in the Swiss open data community, closest models for it being perhaps some of the projects in the finance area.
