Analyzing the potential of photovoltaic systems for urban real estate

Illnau-Effretikon as Swiss Energy City is pushing the installation of photovoltaic systems on public buildings, while at the same time ensuring that the systems can be operated profitably over their lifetime. We supported the city of Illnau-Effretikon in finding new ways to use PV systems economically. To realize as many photovoltaic systems on public buildings as possible, we also took into account properties with economically unfavorable conditions.
