ACTIV'GLASS, formerly Issol Schweiz AG, manufactures customised photovoltaic glass elements for facades and roofs. The company was founded in 2016 in Switzerland by Laurent Quittre, a pioneer in the manufacture of building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) modules. Where standard solar panels do not fit, ACTIV'GLASS offers integration solutions with high architectural value that comply with the standards of the construction sector. The main strength of ACTIV'GLASS is its expertise in glass and its ability to support the building owner from the design stage through to completion. The photovoltaic glass elements are manufactured in Italy. The company markets its products in Switzerland and Europe. In 2018, it won the Swiss Solar Prize with the Solar Terra, a terra cotta-coloured photovoltaic tile for classified buildings.
