Products in the world market are becoming expensive, and one of the staples, conventional energies like oil and gas are one of them. These conventional energies have also contributed to the worsening global climate change we are experiencing. It is also deemed that natural source of energies such as solar, geothermal, water and wind powers would be more affordable in the future.To help slow down (and eventually stop) the adverse effects of climate change, some companies ventured in using the nature as a solution for the future energy needs. Currently, these companies have launched products that are efficient, affordable, sustainable and environment-friendly.

Here are 12 Swiss startups that are making solar energy more accessible.

 

1.Insolight

Insolight revolutionizes sun tracking with a simple concept which opens new perspectives for solar energy. Their technology makes the most efficient existing solar cells affordable, which boosts the generated electrical power.

 

2. Designergy SA Transforming the building envelope from a pure cost to a source of profit, producing renewable photovoltaic energy and saving energy thanks to thermal insulation; this should be done in a non-subsidized environment. Designergy wants to develop, manufacture and market innovative products for building industry, integrating the traditional functions of the building envelope new features such as renewable energy production and energy saving. They are inspired by the most modern construction standards, by the care of the aesthetic aspect, by technological evolution.
