LISD Research

We are an expert group focused on the global delivery of:


We create energy models that can determine the energy independence of a city based on renewable resources.

STAR Energy Model

STAR stands for Space, Time and Renewables. The STAR Energy Model is an affordable and reliable system to determine a community, city or region’s capacity for energy independence based on local renewable resources. Communities benefit from the information generated by the STAR Energy Model by easily building scientifically quantified scenarios for a secure, sustainable and prosperous future.

Renewable Liechtenstein - Erneuerbares Liechtenstein

Renewable Liechtenstein models the current and future energy consumption of the Principality as well as the potentials of the country and its municipalities to become more efficient in the use of energy and to generate renewable energy. The Renewable Liechtenstein model is today used interactively for the energetic planning of the country and its municipalities.

We deliver market and value chain analyses and create integrated design, infrastructure, social and economic development plans.
