UQ has installed more than 5000 polycrystalline silicon solar panels across four building roofs: on two multi-storey carparks, the UQ Centre and the Sir Llew Edwards building. In total, they cover a space equivalent to one-and-a-half rugby fields. A 6 x 7 metre 8.4 kilowatt CPV tracking array has also been placed near the carparks to research another form of solar power technology.
