In this lesson we explore the modelling and data analysis behind INEOS TEAM UK’s solar panel array at their base.
The resource includes a short video introduction to solar panels – a renewable energy source. The video sets the scene and enables you to discuss the motivations behind INEOS TEAM UK’s decision to install the solar panel array. This includes the positive impact it has had as well as how the team monitor its efficiency.
The lesson uses the blueprint of the base’s roof to design the solar panel array, calculate the area and analyse real-life data to evaluate the energy produced. The lesson includes differentiated worksheets.
