Objectives At the Gaia Centre near Delabole, Cornwall CREST has designed and installed a monitoring system for the PV roof. This is an actively ventilated arrangement linked to the building heating system and considerable data has been collected over the past two years. Despite the recent commercial failure of the visitor's centre due to lack of visitors, the PV array has continued to work well and a final report on the monitoring is currently in preparation
