The United Kingdom's solar potential is rapidly approaching its goal of achieving carbon neutrality or zero carbon and GHGs emissions on its roadmap. Each individual in the UK produces nearly 0.83 tonnes each month on average, which is alarming for the climate changes and for the earth which is the only source to live on. The United Kingdom government sets its goals to achieve carbon neutrality as of 2030 at about 68%. For this purpose, the UK government and many other business industries are rushing toward providing services in solar sector energy in the UK to unlock the myths about the green future.
Geologically, solar radiation per square meter hitting the different locations in the United Kingdom has diversity. However, there are many cities in the UK having potential exposure to solar irradiance for about 3-4 peak hours. This eliminates the famous myths that the UK is not a good place to deploy the Solar Power System. These locations include Southern England London, Surrey, Bristol, Southampton, Portsmouth, Brighton, Reading, Plymouth, Milton Keynes, Swindon, Oxford, and last but not the least Luton. These large cities are best fitted to take steps towards embracing solar power because these areas get about 1000 kWh/m2 solar irradiance exposure. Additionally, these areas and many other places are giving the azimuth of about 30-45 degrees due to its benefit positioning on the equator. However, an angle between 20-40 degrees is good to get maximum sun radiation exposure.
Although due to the latitudinal positions the solar potential in the UK is limited to some extent, still the potential is more than comparable to other European countries. You will receive your investment back because there are numerous advantages to installing solar panels over relying solely on the national grid. These advantages include:
- Tariff tax and monthly utility expenses can be reduced by a few pennies.
- When the national grid experiences outages, the system is backed up (in a grid-tied system). If your solar power system delivers more energy than your load requirement, you can sell it to the grid and get compensated for it.
- Lower the GHGs emission and other waste products coming out of other electricity-generating power.
- Adopting solar power will eventually reduce your carbon footprints and water footprints.
- Provide a reliable source of energy even in winters and foggy, snowy environments.
According to the statistical outlooks, the United Kingdom forecast of as the fascial year, 2040 will be 132 GW and most of its portion will contribute by the solar source of energy out of other renewable energy sources. As of 2025, the United Kingdom announced that electricity provided by coal is going to be completely shut down. Predicted statistics show that the potential market value for the composite material is drastically increasing in the UK as of 2030 and most of the composite market value is contributed by the renewable industries. Moreover, the UK is keeping the strategies and roadmaps goals to approach a green future and zero-carbon environment.
