You would like to introduce a funding program for photovoltaics, renewable energies or energy efficiency? We support you in the conception, in the process and in the development and programming of an efficient software for applicants and the handling. With Effienergie AG, we have had a competence center for efficient implementation in the processing of applications for more than 10 years.
The TNC experience for 30 years:
From 2017, the responsibility for the building envelope was transferred from the federal government to the cantons. This will turn the national “Building Program” into a support program for the individual cantons. Effienergie is responsible for the implementation of the program in 13 cantons.
Together with Effienergie, TNC has developed electricity efficiency support programs for 9 cantons. Effienergie takes over the execution including the payment of the subsidies. The cantons take over the communication of the program. The main subsidies are the replacement of electric water heaters with heat pump boilers, replacement o circulation pumps, replacement lighting in non-residential buildings. The financing is provided by “ProKilowatt”. Competitive tenders efficiently use existing funding.
The Foundation KliK supports the renewal of building automation systems in accordance with SIA Standard 386.110.
The implementation of the program was carried out by the Effienergie until 2016, from 2017 the foundation KliK itself. Applications can be submitted until the end of 2017.
„The Building Program of the Confederation and the Cantons“ promotes energy renovation in a national part and the use of renewable energies in the cantonal part. The the national part, Effienergie will implement the promotion of building envelope renovations for 17 cantons. Applications for the program could be submitted by the end of 2016. Every year, 7,000 to 8,000 applications were submitted. By the end of 2018, the implementation and settlement phase of the applications will be completed. 4% of the projects are audited annually by Effienergie on site.
All in all, the implemented measures have resulted in an annual impact of 802’000 tonnes of CO2 since 2010 and a reduction in the annual energy consumption of 4’019 GWh.

The concept of the ewz solar power exchange was developed by TNC on behalf of the power station of the city of Zurich ewz. The concept was awarded the European Solar Prize in 1997. In 1997, TNC also realized the first PV system on the Swissmill silo that supplied electricity for the solar power exchange. The concept has been widely copied in different countries.
Since then, the solar electricity suppliers have benefited from long-term purchase agreements and customers are promoting an environmentally friendly production method by purchasing the electricity. More than 280 plants belong to the ewz solar power exchange, which today is the largest solar power provider in Switzerland. ewz guarantees producers a 20-year electricity purchase at a cost-covering price. Solar electricity customers pay the same price, without agency fees.
The solar power exchange is a competitive bidding model for minimizing solar production costs (at least 25% lower than KEV compensation). Tenants get the opportunity to buy local solar power at the lowest possible prices. The production volume of the ewz solar power exchange with 280 systems is currently over 11 GWh / a.
Project idea and implementation of the competition for integrated PV sound barriers by TNC Consulting AG, Switzerland and TNC Energieconsulting GmbH, Germany.
19 companies worked out 31 suggestions. 6 concepts were selected by the jury, 4 by German companies, 2 by Swiss companies. 6x 10 kW pilot plants were realized, 3 in Germany, 3 in Switzerland.
