Award-winning solar architecture: Selected projects from the Building-Integrated Solar Technology Architecture Award 2022

Free Webinar

Tuesday, February 7, 2023 | 11:00am–12:30pm CET | Webinar Language: German

The use of solar energy in buildings is a key issue on the road to climate neutrality. Solar technology systems should be a natural component of innovative building envelopes as well as building blocks for energy-efficient renovation.

The examples from the competition are characterized by an architecturally and technically exemplary integration of solar systems in the roof and/or facade. They show that, with the right ambitions, solutions can be found that enable the necessary increase in PV output even in exposed locations, such as in (old) cities or in the area of monument and ensemble protection.

During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations are made available to all registrants after the webinar.
