The 32nd Swiss Solar Awards laureates were announced on 27 October 2022 at the Kultur & Kongresshaus in Aarau. This award recognises individuals and institutions that have distinguished themselves through their commitment to renewable energies, as well as buildings and infrastructure that stand out for their energy efficiency. This type of construction helps to reduce the environmental impact of the building stock and at the same time demonstrates how to design in an architectural and energy-efficient way.
The Norman Foster Award is intended for solar architecture that combines aesthetics and energy efficiency. This year it went to two residential projects: a renovated multi-family building in Fahrwangen (Aargau), with an energy self-production rate of 315%, and to the Sol’CH project in Poschiavo (Grisons), already published on this website, which is currently the building with the highest energy self-production rate (395%) in winter in Europe.
