Kyocera Supplies Solar Modules for World’s Largest Stadium-Integrated Photovoltaic System

world’s largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system went into operation this
week on the STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern. After the additional installation of
2,808 solar modules, the stadium now has 7,930 modules from the Japanese
technology company Kyocera, providing an overall output of 1,346.774 kWp. The
expanded system will produce 1,134,045 kWh per year and save on the emission of
630 tons of CO2 annually.

With this

of 10 months. The annual energy yield of 1,134,045 kWh covers the electricity
consumption of more than 350 local four-person households. The STADE DE
SUISSE Wankdorf Bern has been honored for its integration of the photovoltaic
system, receiving both the Swiss and European Solar Awards, and is ideally
equipped as a venue for the European soccer championships (UEFA EURO 2008™) in
