Swiss solar power market

Thanks to reduced waiting periods for the non-recurring remuneration in 2019, the newly added photovoltaic capacity increased by 20% over the previous year, while still remaining below the level of 2015. The market is again expected to grow in 2020, despite the COVID-19 crisis. To achieve climate and energy goals, the annual increase should be multiplied by five.

Swiss solar thermal market

Solar thermal for domestic warm water preparation and auxiliary heating is a fully established technology. There are several reasons for its market decline in Switzerland, as in other European countries.  

Solar radiation in Switzerland

The sun supplies energy in abundance. Its annual radiation on Switzerland’s surface area is 200 times higher than the annual energy consumption of our country. 

Solar energy in profusion

A six-hour solar radiation on land is equivalent to the global power consumption of an entire year. 

Energy scenario

Do we want a politically regulated energy transition with a high economic benefit or a chaotic development where individual solutions prevail? Now it is time to set the course.   

Own consumption with solar batteries

Storing the sun’s energy in solar batteries enables us to use it also in the evening and to increase our own consumption rate.
