Details of the feasibility study.

enshift has completed a comprehensive feasibility study for the Swiss Post, focused on optimizing the transition to net-zero emissions operation by integrating electric mobility, photovoltaic (PV) systems, and expanding storage capacity. With a particular focus on parcel distribution centers, the study addressed the imminent challenges arising from the expansion of the electric fleet and analyzed grid dependence in various scenarios.

The study thoroughly examined strategies for electricity supply using advanced storage solutions and identified saving opportunities in anticipation of grid reinforcements. Continuously assessing the PV expansion potential using cutting-edge technologies was a central part of the study approach.

Additionally, enshift calculated and planned KEV renewal options to further enhance sustainability efforts. Through simulation and calculation of complex interactions among these components, the feasibility study provided valuable insights for the Swiss Post to improve self-sufficiency and autonomy.

With this comprehensive report, Swiss Post is well-equipped to progress towards sustainable operation by optimizing efficiency. The study serves as a roadmap for Swiss Post to fully harness the potential of renewable energy sources and innovative technologies, ensuring a greener and more resilient future.
