Solar Power Portal is delighted to announce the first projects to be shortlisted for this year’s awards.

Looking at the UK’s deployment trends this year, there really is no other category we could start with this year then Ground-mount. Installing over 2GW in Q1 2015 alone, the ground-mount solar sector has propelled the UK to the top of the European solar league table.

But the UK has taken a characteristically different approach to utility-scale solar compared to other global markets. With a heavy emphasis on biodiversity, screening and community engagement, the UK has proved the platform for exemplary solar developments.

This year’s five shortlisted projects celebrate everything positive about the UK’s phenomenal ground-mount sector.  

The shortlisted projects are:

  • BELECTRIC – Landmead Solar Farm

  • British Solar Renewables – Owl's Hatch Solar Farm

  • Lightsource – Black Peak solar farm

  • Low Carbon & Susenco – Berwick Solar Park

  • Solstice Renewables – Manor Farm

The winner of this hotly-contested category will be announced at the prestigious Solar Power Portal Awards presentation and gala dinner ceremony. For details on tickets, click here.

Solar Power Portal will be announcing the shortlist for the remaining categories twice a week from now until Solar Energy UK.
