Listen to the Tagesschau Future Podcast: Solar panels on every roof? So what then?
Let's assume there are solar systems on every roof. And what happens if the sun doesn't shine for a while? Follow the thought experiment of the Tagesschau Podcast. Our solar expert and architect Thorsten Kühn joins us.
At the Advice Centre for Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BAIP) at the HZB, Kühn advises on how solar power can come not only from the roof, but also from the façade. "Photovoltaics in façades are adapting well and will establish themselves as a normal building material in the future," Kühn says in the podcast. The aesthetics do not suffer either: in principle, all façade colours are feasible with photovoltaic panels, says the expert.
