One of the key technologies for the provision of renewable energy is Photovoltaics. Its output should be almost doubled from today until 2050. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary for further space to be made available. While PV parks in open spaces enjoy almost zero acceptance in Switzerland, existing (tourism) infrastructure facilities and, above all, building facades offer available potential. However, building-integrated photovoltaics still have a niche existence today. This is due to a lack of knowledge among building owners and architects, a lack of social and political pressure and, at present, still somewhat uncertain costs. With regard to design requirements, the range of PV panels for building-integrated applications already meets high demands today. However, the diversity of offerings is still growing, also thanks to the work of the NRP «Energy».
