Forensic PV Testing. PV Farms
In 2020 and 2021 LHW have been investigating a number of PV farms at Southwick in Wiltshire, and Ardleigh in Essex, Falmouth in Cornwall, and a number of other locations, to determine reasons for possible performance anomalies. Conclusive evidence was found by field testing avoiding need for expensive mobile laboratory or Test Lab review.
1.3MWp PV Project Peterborough
A 1.3 MWp PV project was successfully commissioned in Peterborough for one of world’s largest industrial diesel engine manufacturers. LHW provided design, vendor selection Technical advisory, grid connection/constraint, and site review and acceptance services. Other similar projects in progress included 2.8MWp PV/Battery system for a large Pension fund, and PV farm projects for a local authority.
PV - Wind Battery Hybrids Major Utility
Since February 2021 LHW has undertaken engineering grade energy reviews on over 60 utility sites in South of England for adoption of PV / Wind & Battery to lower energy import ranging from 100kW to 8 MW per site with varying hourly energy tariff scenarios. The ability to create good quality Half Hour data for both PV & Wind has provided conclusive evidence of the benefits of E-W facing PV Systems, and the massive importance of copowering sites with wind turbines that generate more energy in the winter periods.
