The University of Warwick has established a dynamic new research group, Sustainable Energy Engineering Design (SEED) to undertake research in low carbon energy technologies and design essential to underpin a sustainable built environment. This research group, along with partners from industry and academia, are using new state of the art Birmingham Science City facilities – funded by Advantage West Midlands (AWM) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) – to undertake research on sustainable heating and cooling technologies. Such technologies include solar heating systems.

Cutting edge facilities available for solar energy evaluation and testing:
  • A large area (3.2m2) continuous solar simulator
  • Highly instrumented outdoor and laboratory test facilities for complete solar energy systems 
  • Indoor and outdoor solar radiation characterisation equipment
  • Evacuated tube solar collectors for detailed experimental characterisation of solar thermal systems 
  • Optical characterisation equipment for coated glasses and selective surfaces  
For further information and access to the facilities, please see the leaflet here.
