Zero-emission Antarctic research station to use PV

The Princess Elisabeth station will be exposed to the extreme Antarctic conditions, with temperatures going as low as –60°C and wind speeds reaching 250 km/h. Such conditions demand a reliable energy supply.

Engineers at the UK's Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) – which has been researching and demonstrating sustainable energy technologies for more than 30 years – are installing a new woodchip-powered CHP plant which will be more than 80% efficient when running at full power.
