Swiss solar award for systems with Kyocera modules of TRITEC
The prize was awarded to the headquarters of the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) in Gland and a single-family house in Ruschein (Switzerland).
The systems in Gland (VD) and Ruschein (GR) won the jury's vote with their energy efficiency and architecturally successful integration of the solar systems into the buildings.
Since 1948, the "International Union of Conservation of Nature" (IUCN) promotes the conservation, knowledge and biodiversity of our planet. The newly built headquarters receive almost half of their energy needs from solar energy. Approximately half of the required energy is produced by the roof-integrated 146 kWp PV system with poly-crystalline modules of 1,029 m2, generating around 139,700 kWh/a of power annually.
Due to its clear cubic stylistic shapes, the PlusEnergie single-family house of Maria Cadruvi and Andreas Joos blends in optimally with the Alpine landscape of Ruschein. The multifunctional 6.5 kWp photovoltaic system is integrated into the gently pitched saddleback roof over the whole surface and therefore to optimum effect. It works as an energy system and fulfills all protective functions of a roof. The PV system with 50 Kyocera modules of 130 W each is oriented to the South and generates a calculated solar yield of around 7,700 kWh/a per year.
