According to the SFOE’s solar energy statistics published in mid-July, the number of new photovoltaic installations in Switzerland rose by 43 percent to 683 megawatts in 2021. This year, the Federal Office expects an increase in solar energy of 900 to 1000 megawatts, as it was called when asked by the Keystone-SDA news agency. This corresponds to market growth of around 50 percent.

According to a spokeswoman, the SFOE currently expects a production of over 1000 kilowatt hours (kWh) per kilowatt (kW) of installed capacity for 2022. In 2021 there were still 895. The long-term average was around 960 kWh.
