The Light Saving Spectacle

Without light, nothing works at Rendez-vous Bundesplatz. Yes, we need electricity. And yes, it works! Rendez-vous Bundesplatz, the famous Son-et-Lumière event at the Swiss Parliament building, can also save electricity. We started to do this on a large scale in 2022. Among other things, with the latest technology in laser phosphor projectors: the virtually maintenance-free laser light sources save up to 30% energy.

We are continuing this year. In keeping with the guiding principle of sustainability: reduce energy consumption, increase energy efficiency and promote renewable energies.

This year, again, we are using one hundred per cent renewable energy from “Energie Wasser Bern”, or “ewb” for short. According to the latest comparative study by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), ewb is one of the most sustainable energy suppliers in Switzerland. Energie Wasser Bern achieved top results in all the areas studied and even took top place in the electricity and gas categories.

ewb is the perfect partner for Rendez-vous Bundesplatz.

It all starts on 19 October 2024. Every evening three times – 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. And this until 23 November 2024.
