Entirely solar-heated blocks of flats in Switzerland

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 27, 2018

Switzerland’s solar thermal market showed a slight increase last year, thanks to growing demand for solar hot water systems in multi-family houses. According to a press release from Switzerland’s solar industry association Swissolar on 11 July, glazed and unglazed collector area increased by 69,331 m2, a rise of 4 % compared to a year earlier. The area used to heat water in multi-family buildings jumped as much as 35 %. Every year, the association conducts a survey among suppliers of the technology on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.
