EPIC building in Nuneaton has won the Solar Architecture Award in the Eurosolar UK Awards 2006
PIC is owned by Warwickshire County Council and won the award for its use of photovoltaic panels on its southern facade. They have been mounted onto a curved array using the latest technology. The panels will generate electricity for more than 50 businesses based at EPIC and provide between 15 and 20 per cent of the electricity demand in this highly energy efficient building. The construction has been designed to minimise energy required for lighting, heating and power, with a projected energy usage and CO2 emissions of less than 50 per cent of those of a standard commercial office space. - John Harris - 2008-07-18
