@Tatasteelltd review solar technologies available that will effectively turn buildings into power stations #WGBW15

This event will review the solar technologies available today that will effectively turn buildings into power stations. Two technologies will be discussed, namely roof mounted photovoltaic systems (PVs) and active solar air heating solutions. Agenda 11.30: Roof mounted PVs for non-domestic buildings - Gary Southgate, Market Development Manager, Building Envelope, Tata Steel This RIBA approved CPD seminar details the drivers for roof mounted PVs, the different systems available and factors that affect their performance to enable specifiers to choose the right system to match their needs. It then considers the implications of installing PV modules on both the building envelope and the structure to ensure long term performance, and then summarises with an update on UK government financial incentives, funding mechanisms and payback periods. 12.15: Light buffet lunch 12.45: Act...
