Cardiff University’s Sustainable Building Envelope Demonstration (SBED) project, in partnership with Tata Steel, has installed Transpired Solar Collectors (TSCs) onto the roof of the main corridor at Lampeter Comprehensive School in Lampeter. The event will share the knowledge and experience learnt from the installation and will demonstrate how the TSCs use solar power to heat air before directing it into the building.

Speakers will include representatives from:

  • Cardiff University;
  • Tata Steel;
  • Ceredigion County Council (property owner); and
  • Lampeter Comprehensive School (building user).

After the presentations, there will be a site visit to Lampeter Comprehensive School to observe the installation.
