School of Engineering and IT

The Renewable Energy Engineering Lab

Through the School's contacts with the wind industry the laboratory has acquired a comprehensive range of wind industry standard software. The computers in the lab also have current design software for analysing and sizing renewable energy systems. Equipment is also available for testing the characteristics of PV modules, the performance of solar water pumping systems and measuring and analysing the wind and solar resource. Established in 2008, it is a growing resource for the Renewable Energy Engineering students.
