Britain’s large-scale solar PV industry delivering benefits for biodiversity and sustainable agriculture
A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that well-designed and well-managed solar can support wildlife habitats and meaningfully contribute to achieving national biodiversity targets.
This document aims to present a broad range of examples of biodiversity enhancement and management, illustrating best practice through a series of case studies from our members, as well as new research from Lancaster University and the University of York who are driving this work

By supporting healthy ecosystems at a local level whilst avoiding climate change-causing emissions from coal and gas power stations,
solar PV can play a significant role in the UK’s response to both the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
