The Swiss Physical Society (SPS) is the national professional association of Physicists coming from teaching, research, development and industry. The diversity of modern research in physics is reflected in ten specific sections.

Energy and Sustainability

In the last years the SPS has sporadically taken position on topics related to energy politics. The proposed creation of the new section on "Energy and Sustainability" reflects the growing importance of both issues for climate change mitigation and energy supply security. In the future, scientifically sound findings will be presented in articles of our new series "Energy and Sustainability" in the SPG Mitteilungen, but also as key topics in the SPS Focus series, or in special sessions at the SPS Annual Meeting.
