    • Principles of UK feed-in tariff
      • PV system owners receive FIT for all PV generation
      • FIT tariffs are index linked and guaranteed for 25 years
      • Electricity can then be used or sold to the utility retail off set vs wholesale
      • Retail value of the electricity not fixed
    • Principles of UK feed-in tariff GENERATION IMPORT EXPORT

      Land/Building Owner Solarcentury Establish SPV to own roof lease, PV system & permits Investor Developer or SC identifies site and proposes lease Agree terms with investor Investor pays annual rent to building owner Building owner and developer agree terms and duration for lease Operation & maintenance in place Award EPC contract Obtain all permits Deliver turnkey installation Option 1 – farmer rents roof or land to investor Developer
    • Summary
      • Wide range of technical solutions for buildings and ground mounted systems
      • FITs make investing in solar attractive
      • Investor, developer and installer expertise is available to help
      • Farms and farm buildings present some of the best opportunities for adding to our renewable energy mix
    • Next steps Ground mount? Suitable roof? [email_address] [email_address] Developer partner: Savills
    • Case studies
    • CIS Tower – Manchester, UK
      • Example of rain-screen PV cladding
      • Unique aesthetic and strong statement of environmental commitment by the Co-operative Insurance Group
      • Largest commercial solar façade in Europe at the time of installation in 2005
      • 7,244 Sharp modules yield a system size of 391kWp
      • Cost of PV fully offset cost of tiles in which building was originally clad
      • Building was in full use during installation
    • Tesco – Various locations, UK
      • Multiple systems across Tesco stores in the UK
      • Range of module technologies used to maximise generation at each site
      • Solarcentury mounting solutions allow for integration into different roof types
      • Full marketing support to maximise brand benefits to Tesco
      • Systems are remotely monitored
    • Big Yellow Self Storage, UK
      • Systems installed to 12 stores across the country
      • Meets with delivery model – easy to install, reliable and low maintenance
      • Wins over other technologies in terms of CO2 savings
      • Planning is not an issue with photovoltaics – low visual impact and output predictable
      • Aligned with CSR plan
      • Systems are remotely monitored from head office
    • Gazeley
      • Gazeley decided to become a low carbon pioneer in 2003
      • Solarcentury has successfully delivered 18 solar projects for Gazeley in the UK, Spain and France
      • Gazeley today is widely recognised as a benchmark in sustainable warehouse operations
      • This has helped Gazeley significantly increase the value of their building stock
    • Gazeley (Invista) - San Agustin, Spain
      • Modular system design based on proprietary framing system
      • Modules angled towards sun on a flat roof
      • Installation time and effort minimised
      • System load distributed across roof
      • Sunpower 205W, all-black modules give the system a high aesthetic
    • Modular Stations - Network Rail
      • A total of 33.35kWp was installed over the three stations Corby, Eastfields and Greenhithe
      • PV generation along with energy efficiency to reduced the sites CO2 emissions by 25%
      • Solarcentury worked closely with Network Rail and Corus to design and deliver these projects
      • Standardised design made the systems more economical
      • With our installation partner SEC these projects were delivered quickly
    • UK Schools Project
      • Solarcentury has delivered PV systems to 160 UK schools, to wide acclaim within the country
      • The project was jointly financed by the Co-operative Insurance Group and the UK government’s Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR)
      • Each school received a 3.9kWp PV system and a comprehensive educational package designed by Solarcentury
      • The dispersed nature of the sites and variation in roof types posed a challenge for the installation
      • This was overcome by standardising system designs and outsourcing installation under strict quality control
      • We continue to work successfully with CIS and BERR
    • Gazeley (Eroski) – Ontigola, Spain
      • BIPV system in Ontigola, Spain
      • New build by Gazeley for Eroski
      • UniSolar flexible a-Si (amorphous silicon) thin film laminates integrate fully with the membrane roof
      • PV laminates form the UV-proof layer of the roof
      • Requires neither ballast nor roof penetrations
    • Procter & Gamble – Euskirchen, Germany
      • 94.5kWp installed at a P&G centre in Euskirchen
      • Installed on Solarcentury SB1400 mounting system to maximise electricity generation
      • Benefits from German roof-mounted PV tariff
      • Remote monitoring ensures maximum output
      • Highly efficient installation – only 18 minutes per kWp
    • Milan schools
      • Won a competitive tender by the Province of Milan to install 480kWp onto 24 schools
      • The highly competitive tender was won due to Solarcentury’s expertise in BIPV and deep experience with the public sector
      • Standardised system designs, a flexible project management approach and constant client liaison meant the project was installed in time and under budget
      • All systems are remotely monitored ensuring customer peace of mind and educational value
