The Implementation and Adoption of Photovoltaics (PV) in the UK (2010)

Ref: build0014

It has been recognised that the problems caused by energy pollution are threatening the earth’s environment and must be dealt with. Currently, UK is mainly using fossil fuels such as gas, oil and coal, which represent a large part of the pollution. The introduction of renewable energy is seen as an important step in reducing pollution and the UK Government has adopted a strategy to try and increase the use of renewable energy within a specified timescale. This dissertation focuses on the implementation of photovoltaics (PV) in the UK and examines the Government’s strategies.  In determining whether the aims are likely to be met it general public opinions are considered and an opinion is taken from the professional sector. The first part of the research was a desktop study, aimed to collect primary and secondary information from books, journals, Internet, Government reports etc. It was clear that because the general public are an important party in determining the success of PV energy, their views needed to be canvassed. It was therefore decided that the best method of determining public views about PV energy was a public questionnaire.  A pilot study was conducted before the main questionnaire to test the questions. The public questionnaire was sent 220 people in London and the South-East. It is clear that there are still many issues that have to be addressed and developed if the use of PV is to be a serious contender in the energy market. The main obstacles to the implementation of PV are cost related. Both in technical terms and financial feasibility, PV can be one of the future renewable energy sources in the UK. However, the Government still has some way to go before convincing the general public to adopt PV systems.
