West Midlands Bright Solar Future
Presentation given by Mark Wakeford, Chair Evo Energy, Vice Chair Construction Excellence Midlands, Member of Government’s Solar Task Force at the event “West Midlands Bright Solar Future” (Climate Change Solutions Ltd) on 1st November 2023.
Solar power offers the largest potential source, maximising financial benefit with large clusters of collocated building sharing generation and consumption with minimum National Grid interaction.
A major solar mapping of large south facing and flat roof building together with some car parks offers the prospect for 12 million solar panels making a major contribution to the UK objective of a 500% increase capacity to 70GW by 2030.
We would like to invite you to contribute to our preset partnership project, to increase the pace and scale of delivery bearing in mind after 20 years only 1% of businesses have installed solar, a little more for public buildings and just over 1 million of 25 million homes.
Please see below the link for the presentation to the attached West Midlands Bright Solar Future 1 November 2023 showcasing a range of actions addressing the 2030 Climate Emergency imperative within the region, central to which is generating large quantities of clean, and cheaper green energy.
