Solar Centre

  • Comment

Arup Associates' Solar Centre (above) has been relocated to a prominent position at Baglan Energy Park in south Wales. The building was first built for the 1998 G8 Summit in Birmingham to demonstrate grid-connected applications of photovoltaics. It features 176 panels on its southfacing wall which generate enough electricity to run four energy-efficient houses.
