Project Details


The main objective of the project is to actively participate in the Take-Off campaign aiming at doubling the share of RES in the European mix by 2010, by installing a significant number of medium-large grid-connected PV systems in educational and cultural facilities in four State-members (Spain, France, UK and the Netherlands). Wishing to establish the foundations on which the Green Campuses and Green Municipalities of the future can be built, the participants (universities, technical training organisations, regional Governments and Municipalities, cultural centres, utilities and enterprises) also aim at raising social awareness on energy issues and actual possibilities of PV technology. Thanks to the best architectural integration and technical design, and to a carefully elaborated monitoring and dissemination programme, the project will clearly contribute to improving the acceptance of renewable energy sources among all concerned professionals, and the general public.
