Entrepreneurial Support

Our building, the ‘Renewable Energy Works’ has all the facilities required to help a one-man start-up business become a fully fledged operation.

GB-Sol has its roots in a University Spin-out two decades ago, so we understand the difficulties faced by entrepreneurs when first starting out.

Not only do we offer the practical necessities of flexible desk space, we provide access to experimental space, conference room, IT, workshop and offloading equipment, and of course like-minded people to share a discussion over the kettle!

 We have the most experience to offer in the field of Energy, but anything within the environmental and engineering sphere would have commonality with our community. We have links to local and global universities, and can act as R&D provider in collaborative research.

We also have a large outdoor space that can be made available for experimental use and demonstrations, and we have a wide network of local contacts who can provide services and collaborations.

New solar panels for a solar farm

GB-Sol have just supplied their first replacement panels for a solar farm.

As technology for solar PV has changed rapidly over the last 10 years, sometimes when a module needs replacing, the manufacturer no longer makes that particular model.

Feed In Tariff rules mean that you are at risk of having your tariff revoked if you do not replace broken panels on a like for like basis. This can lead to difficulties when sourcing a replacement.

GB-Sol can cost-effectively create replacement panels with similar look and output to your originals, with mono or poly crystalline cells, 35mm or 40mm silver or black frame, white or black background to any specified dimensions.
