Akademie Mont-Cenis (Herne, Germany, 1999) (Herne, Germany, 1999)

  • Type of project:
  • Integration type:

A more than 12,000 m² glass envelope covers all of the buildings in this further training academy. PV systems were integrated into the roof surfaces and the south-west surfaces of the glass envelope on the sides. The almost 3200 PV modules have a varying solar cell packing density.

In addition to energy yield, they distribute light and shade in an optimal manner so that there was no need for a complex air-conditioning system (ABAKUS-SOLAR).

Key data

  • installed area: 10.000 m²
