Products that collect, convert and store solar energy form a large part of the renewables sector. Systems have been developed to suit applications from large-scale solar farms to domestic microrenewables projects. Read More

Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels collect sunlight and convert it directly into electricity, which can be used to power different systems in domestic, commercial or industrial environments.

Solar thermal systems use the heat from the sun, by means of accumulators, to heat water or air in a building. Large solar thermal plants are also used to generate steam, powering entire communities.

Building-integrated solar power systems can be incorporated unobtrusively into roofing tiles or cladding, whilst other systems are ground fixed.

Solar thermal is one of the technologies included in the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive for commercial and domestic sectors. Solar power will also be covered by the forthcoming Green Deal.
