Today photovoltaics, like other Renewable Energy technologies, is positively taking off throughout Europe. Perhaps inevitably barriers are being encountered en-route which are independent of the present technological knowledge. Within UnivERsol, European universities and cultural centres have encountered many such problems. It is a tribute to their perseverance that they have collectively increased the installed European photovoltaic capacity by 829kWp in 27 grid connected photovoltaic systems.

The experience has been enriching and has also produced results in terms of lessons learnt and knowledge gained in addition to the benefits of producing clean electrical energy. A large number of students, staff, visitors or simply passers-by are in direct contact with the photovoltaic facilities, either on a single basis or as a pedagogical, training or research tool: educational and cultural organisations are not only a source of knowledge but also a source of thought.

This booklet presents a summary of UnivERsol activities.
