Servetia – Accelerating the Swiss Energy Transition

Servetia is an innovative initiative dedicated to accelerating clean and energy-efficient solutions in Switzerland through the exploration of new business models such as the pay-per-use model.


What is the challenge?

Traditional approaches to energy efficiency in buildings have posed significant challenges and have fallen short of effectively reducing emissions and optimising energy-use. The urgent need for innovative solutions to decarbonise the building sector is evident, as buildings account for 40% of Switzerland’s energy demand and more than 30% of its CO2 emissions.

Innovative solutions and cross-industry collaboration is required to accelerate decarbonisation of the building sector and achieve a net-zero Switzerland by 2050.


What is the opportunity?

Servetia presents a transformative opportunity. By embracing the power of new business models such as servitisation, we can shift how energy-efficient solutions are deployed in buildings.

Through this initiative we offer an alternative to the conventional product-focused approach, moving towards outcome-driven services. The X-as-a-Service model can optimise energy use and reduce emissions, and at the same time deliver long-term economic benefits for building owners and businesses.


How does it work ?

In different parts of the world, and across multiple sectors, the XaaS business model has proven its effectiveness in enabling better access and an easier transition to clean and energy-efficient solutions. Using a collaborative approach, we bring together technology providers, building owners and financial backers to co-create tailored pilot projects for specific buildings and energy needs. 

Servetia will showcase solutions and closely monitor performance, and will foster innovation by sharing insights.
