The Curve, Teesside University

Teesside University is based in Middlesbrough and draws students from all over the UK and abroad. The university is known for its progressive approach and inspiring innovation. In 2015 it opened The Curve, a new building designed for modern teaching and learning.

The Challenge

Teesside University's sustainability policy required installing energy saving products to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. There was limited roof space so intelligent design was needed.

What UCS Renewables Did

Working on behalf of local firm Castle Building Services, we installed 177 x 250w solar panels to generate clean, renewable energy. The panels were placed in an east-west configuration using a Renusol FS10 East/West mounting system to make use of the limited space available and ensure maximum exposure to the sun.

The result is that the solar panels generate green electricity 365 days a year, providing a renewable energy source and allowing Teesside University to meet its sustainability targets.
