The Engineering Centre is a newly constructed property located in the University of Southampton Science Park which serves as a home for various innovative companies and innovation hub for University of Southampton.


Energy Saving: After the first year of installation, 31% of the property’s total demand is fulfilled by renewably generated solar energy.  

Payback: The payback period for the PV system is less than 5 years, due to the high percentage of onsite solar energy usage.  

Energy management and technology support: A customised dashboard at the building entrance allows occupants, users, and employees to monitor real-time energy production. Additionally, Absolar conducts annual cleaning and system checks to ensure maximum efficiency of the PV system.
