The seven strong team designs, plans and operates solar systems, conducts research in the area of photovoltaics and develops new products such as systems for monitoring the performance of such installations. With its 300 employees Basler & Hofmann is one of Switzerland’s most reputable engineering, planning and consultancy companies. The new photovoltaic team fits into a network of professionals from related fields: At Basler & Hofmann building services engineers, sustainable design specialists, specialists in energy efficiency, façade design and building physics work closely together. The new team makes it possible for the company to offer solar technology as part of its portfolio of services. The common goal is to create buildings that are energy efficient, sustainable and comfortable.
Good future prospects
Prospects for the future are excellent. The photovoltaic industry has seen double-digit percentage growth for years. The incorporation of solar modules into the building envelope is particularly prevalent in Switzerland but is also suitable in other European countries. This is a special area of expertise that the Enecolo-Team can provide. Working closely with specialists in building engineering and façade design offers synergistic benefits.
