Swiss Solar Awards 2022

27th October 2022

The Sol’CH project is consistently designed for energy efficiency and energy generation. The orientation of the building, the pitch of the roof and the cut-ins of the building volume are optimised in terms of use of electricity, but at the same time take into account the existing outdoor qualities of the location itself. The rigorous use of all facade and roof surfaces, in combination with the ideal orientation and roof pitch, leads to a significant production of electricity, especially in winter and in the transitional period. This project contributes to the development of solar energy applications, sets an architectural benchmark and shows what is possible today in terms of technology and design.

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.
