Solar Tangibles

The proposed strategic research area, Energy Futures, will look at software and systems, social aspects and cooperation, education and integration with sensor networks, etc

It will also create some experimental/demonstration solar installations around our building.

If successful, these might be followed by larger scale deployments.

The suggested immediate plans are for

1) a roof/outdoor installation of approx 0.5 - 1 kWp of pv panels, standalone system (pv panel, batteries, inverter)

2) an indoor, embedded pv element in our light flooded atrium, < 500 Wp

3) a semi-transparent pv window element, 1-2 sqm

Our atrium - room for integrated solar technology
Our roof - room for external solar technology
