Trina Solar brings green energy to Lotus F1 HQ

PV manufacturers Trina Solar has completed the installation of a PV system at the headquarters of the Lotus F1 Team in Enstone, Oxfordshire, England.

The roof mounted system will help power the F1 team’s racing simulator and mitigate the site’s carbon emissions in what is traditionally a fossil fuel consumption-heavy industry.

“We have been working with Lotus F1 Team for nearly three years now and this latest deployment of our technology is the next step in the team’s drive towards renewably sourced energy,” said Ben Hill, Head of Trina Solar Europe.

“This deployment represents the synergy of innovation and speed for both companies.”

Patrick Louis, Lotus F1 Team ceo, added: “This installation of a Trina Solar PV system reflects our continued commitment to renewable energy. The PV array provided by Trina Solar provides significant energy generation that fits our surrounding environment. Lotus F1 Team is committed to promoting and supporting initiatives that ensure that our activities contribute to a greener future for society.”
