Analyse and Evaluate the Future of Photovoltaic's on Domestic Buildings in the UK (2009)

Ref: build0015

The technology for Photovoltaics is reliable, straight forward to install, and simple to maintain. It is also a technology in which the UK has considerable expertise. So why doesn’t PV have greater impact on the UK’s domestic buildings? What factors are stopping the use of such a capable and reliable technology? This dissertation aims to answer these questions. The dissertation also set out to see what other options are available in the UK for domestic building and review the cost and benefits of those technologies. The research has indicated that the poor Government support and the cost are the major factor that is preventing homeowner to install these technologies. The UK has the capacities to manufacture PV modules, but due to the high cost of installation in the UK, most of these manufactures tend to export the modules worldwide. Before PV can realise its full potential and become a common site on domestic building throughout the UK, the issues need to be addressed by our Government.
