Challenge / Goal
The system is an integral part of the ambition to become grid independent on a campus housing 1 large academic building, an energy centre, a multi-storey car park and accomodation for 900 university students.
158kW Solar PV installed on a BREEAM 'Excellent' certified academic building. The building had existing infrastructure to install rooftop PV (slight slope with clamping mechanism). The PV system will be linked to the existing CHP plant and electric battery storage.
Active participation: students notified about the installations. Siemens will be carrying out behavorial change workshops with students after M36.
