Photovoltaics

Photovoltaics is a technology involving solar cells that transform the sun’s radiation directly into electric energy with zero emissions.

More and more countries deploy the clean, inexpensive power supplied by the sun. Around the world, the addition of installed solar power (photovoltaic or PV) capacity is increasing exponentially. In Switzerland, the industry sector that provides 5600 jobs is steadily gaining importance. Solar energy already covers no less than 4.5% of Swiss power consumption and its contribution is increasing year by year.
