Innovations are the pacemakers of building and systems technology, and are crucial for the design and construction of suitable buildings for the future. Many ideas and innovations are born in research, pilot and demonstration programmes initiated by SwissEnergy.
Some of these success stories have been documented: approximately 50 innovative buildings and systems have been described in a series called "Gute Beispiele von EnergieSchweiz" (SwissEnergy: setting good examples). The descriptions include facts and figures, and underscore the importance of innovative technologies and measures. The common factors here are improvement of the energy properties of building shells and increasing the energy efficiency of household systems.
This series is especially helpful to those who are looking for new ideas, references or contacts – a veritable treasure chest for builders and designers, and of course for people who want to save money and conserve energy!
