Commissioning of an information brochure on the planning and realisation of solar systems and urban greening.

The “Solar Guidelines” are geared towards property managements and building owners and offer technical information that can be referred to when making decisions concerning solar power. Various solar technologies are presented, and individual components and parts of solar and photovoltaic systems explained. The sun can also be utilised by means of urban greening, which can play a role in the areas of microclimate, rainwater management and sun protection. Planners can find information on where and how which systems and which forms of greening can be used. Pictures of successfully implemented solar and photovoltaic systems show how these have become an integral part of the architecture of both old and new buildings in the city.
