Description

BRISTOL SOLAR CITY CONFERENCE (Friday 15th am – see also Bristol Free University, Friday pm)

Can solar electricity help make the UK sustainable for energy, sooner than we thought? And will Bristol lead the way? Bristol Solar City is the campaign of Bristol Solar Group (BSG), which was formed after a successful Bristol-Hannover Energy Summit in June 2011.

In 2011 the UK shot from having 77Mw of installed solar PV electricity to 1Gw – growing thirteen times in a year – a huge leap fuelled by generous Feed in Tariffs met plummeting prices for solar panels. The Tariffs have since been halved, but then solar panel prices also halved...

Bristol's Solar Map, published in February, shows room for 700Mw of solar on the city's roofs. And Bristol Council are sourcing EU funding (ELENA) for a major municipal energy programme.

Bristol Power Co-op's Streets of Solar project will put solar PV on 300 homes in Lockleaze – see the STREETS OF SOLAR VIDEO! And BASIC - Bristol Area Solar Installers Co-op, has been formed to tackle major projects like Lockleaze.

Come to Bristol Solar City Conference and find out more about Streets of Solar, BSG, ELENA, BASIC, and help plan the next steps in making Bristol a fully sustainable Solar City.
