Renewable energies are derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly and are becoming an ever more important part of our energy mix. A combination of the environmental impacts associated with burning fossil fuels and the spiralling costs of energy are driving a focus towards dealing with climate change by increasing renewable energy legislation backed with Government incentives.
Both heat and electrical energy can be gained from the sun's rays. The term solar technology covers both solar thermal systems and photovoltaics. A solar thermal system converts energy from the sun into thermal energy. A photovoltaic system utilises the sun's energy to generate electricity by means of photovoltaic modules.
Not surprisingly, a flat roof is the ideal place for a PV installation as it provides an unobstructed space that is perfectly positioned to catch as much sunlight as possible. By and large, rooftops are often an unused resource and the electrical production from the installed PV arrays is at the point of use, so there is every reason to convert your roof in to a small power plant.
The BauderSOLAR solution uses highly efficient monocrystalline PV modules to maximise the power generated on the flat roof. More info »»
The UK Government has set ambitious targets for its reduction of gas emissions, aiming to cut these by 48% by 2050, compared to 2008 figures, when they expect the UK’s carbon sector to be carbon neutral.
