Solar Thermal & Solar PV System

Our SHED is home to a test-rig that analyses five commercially available and emerging PV and solar thermal technologies. The data provides an understanding of performance in a natural environment – such as cloud cover, insulation or precipitation – which enable us to choose the right technology for buildings of the future.

Solar Heat Storage

SPECIFIC is researching solar heat storage options to solve the biggest challenge in providing affordable low carbon energy: heating space and water.
