Renewable Energy

UQ is proud to be a leader in the renewable energy field and our infrastructure includes the 64 megawatt Warwick Solar Farm.

In addition, UQ also generates another 7 megawatts of power from multiple campuses, including the 3.275 megawatt Gatton Solar Research Facility and the 2.14 megawatt integrated photovoltaic system at the St Lucia campus.

UQ has electric vehicle fast-charging stations at both St Lucia and Gatton campuses and at Warwick.

UQ strives to minimise energy consumption through efficient operations and by promoting energy awareness to the University community.

Having access to these state-of-the-art research facilities is allowing UQ’s solar experts make exciting new discoveries about clean energy generation and carbon emissions reduction.
