Caption: Solar power in architecture. View of solar panels on the facade of a computer building at the University of Northumbria, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This project began when the original concrete facade began to break up. The new solar panels are designed to act as cladding as well as providing power, and to be integrated into the appearance of the building. Completed in 1994, the panels cover the south-facing side of the building, and provide a peak 40 kilowatts of electricity. The panels are expected to provide 50% of the building's power demand in summer, and 10% of demand in winter. Although this is a pilot project, such cladding may be economically viable within 10 years.
