The Gatton Libray Warehouse is a state of the art environmentally-controlled facility built to store and safeguard key bibliographic material (e.g. books, journals, documents and archives). Its 102.5 kWp PV system has been integrated into the Gatton Solar Research Facility, which is an accredited Renewable Power Station under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act (2000).

Together with the Gatton Solar Research Facility, the 102.5 kWp PV system constitutes one of the largest PV power stations accredited in Australia by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER). The installation of the this system is one among many initiatives being undertaken at the Gatton Campus to bolster the sustainability of UQ operations.
