About our pilot projects

Norwich solar system

Solar energy has an important role to play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change.

Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) will lead this project to create the UK's largest urban solar farm. It will develop a net zero business cluster from Norwich BID's 750 members. Norwich's net zero business cluster will conduct research projects and support knowledge exchange.

Initial research will focus on the potential development of rooftop solar panels for businesses, schools and community organisations in the Greater Norwich area. This will include a survey of potential sites for installation.
