Europe’s technology industries gather to address energy security
18 October 2022
These and other questions are set to be addressed at Orgalim’s General Assembly in Zurich this November, hosted by Orgalim’s member Swissmem. On the agenda, a conference on the theme of sector coupling as a key to energy security, followed by an exclusive tour of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), and its world class facilities for research in the field of energy and environment, matter and materials, and health.
Sector coupling and the future energy system
Sector coupling – the interconnection of different energy generating and consuming sectors – has a critical role to play in the future energy system, and Swiss technology companies are among the leaders in demonstrating the potential, explains Stefan Brupbacher, CEO of Swissmem.

During the conference, industry leaders will share insights and opinions, not only into the currently available solutions and business opportunities of sector coupling, but also on the regulatory framework conditions to gain momentum for this key concept for the energy transition. The visit to the Paul Scherrer Institute will provide further insights into this and other energy system solutions. The institute is internationally recognised for its research both in individual energy technologies, and in identifying the right energy mix and systems for the future.
A critical time
The current energy crisis is hitting at a critical stage of Europe’s green and digital transition, and it is therefore a key moment for Europe’s technology industries to come together to collectively identify the solutions to the challenges and opportunities to secure Europe’s energy future, says Orgalim’s Director General, Malte Lohan.

Orgalim’s General Assembly is the biannual formal gathering of Orgalim members, representing Europe’s technology industries, comprised of 770,000 innovative companies spanning the mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronics, ICT, and metal technology branches. This General Assembly takes place on 16-17 November, at the invitation of Swissmem.
