There is a widely held misconception that photovoltaic panels are unsuited to the UK climate.
On 24 March 2010 the ESP KTN ran an extremely successful meeting in association with the Yorkshire Photonics Network (YPN). The meeting attracted 59 delegates from a complete cross-section of the Yorkshire PV capability. These included: DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change), Sheffield University, professional PV installation companies, local power systems design groups, heating installers, and Yorkshire and Humber Microgeneration Partnership (who accredit the installers).
The meeting was declared a complete success with several similar feedback quotes stating – “Without the KTN’s intervention this diverse group of people would never have known about each other let alone met and given the opportunity to network”.
