Solar Farm for Photovoltaic Research


Sheffield Solar Farm, which is being funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, is be based around the installation of 70m² state-of-the-art photovoltaic panels on the roof of the University's Hicks building. The panels benefit both the University and photovoltaics researchers and developers around the UK, who use it to field-test their new and experimental photovoltaic cell designs in a bid to further our knowledge of renewable energy sources. The main installation of the new Solar Farm was completed in July 2010.
