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.

PV Slate has now been extended to a full roof system

 PV Slate is now available edge-to-edge. It is now almost impossible to distinguish GB-Sol's PV Slates from natural slates, as the system has been extended to be able to cover the whole roof.

GB-Sol first full roof PV Slate scheme has now been commissioned at Pilton Methodist Church Hall in Somerset, with the support of local architect Roger Barnes.  140 PV Slates were used, generating 3.85kWp of power and replacing 420 natural slates.  The system works with a Tesla Powerwall installed by our friends Solarsense for a complete solar & battery system.

PV Slate creates stunning roofs that have the look and feel of natural slate combined with the hidden electricity generating power of high efficiency solar cells.  PV Slates can also be fitted right alongside natural slates and come with a 25 year warranty.

Manufactured in Wales, the GB-Sol PV Slates have been designed and independently tested to withstand the extremes of the UK weather.  Popular with UK Local Authority planning departments, churches and listed buildings:  PV Slate is the perfect solution where aesthetics are vitally important.
