Powering UQ to 100 per cent renewable.

UQ is proud to be a leader in the renewable energy field, with the largest solar energy generation capacity of any Australian university.

Our world class solar installations – which also include the 3.275 megawatt Gatton Solar Research Facility , the biggest of its kind in the southern hemisphere, and a 64 megawatt Warwick solar facility – are used for teaching, learning and scientific investigation by some of the world’s best solar research scientists.

With more than 30 sites across UQ campuses and facilities, our solar infrastructure is helping to create change by reducing the University’s carbon emissions and providing the technology necessary for advancements in photovoltaic research.

It's an international effort. UQ engineers provide engineers from around the world with access to large data sets (live and historic) from across the PV network.

UQ has a growing portfolio of photovoltaic assets installed across its campuses and facilities.

These assets range from large-scale solar farms to micro-grids on remote coral reefs.

As well as reducing the University's carbon emissions, UQ's solar infrastructure helps to create change by providing the technological background necessary for advancements in photovoltaic research.

It's an international effort. UQ engineers provide engineers from around the world with access to large data sets (live and historic) from across the PV network.

 

$125m Warwick Solar Farm powers UQ to 100 per cent renewable

Australia’s renewable energy research capacity has been boosted with the completion of The University of Queensland’s 64 megawatt solar farm at Warwick in the state’s south east.
