Winner of SolarPower Europe's Flora and Fauna competition

A pair of Lightsource bp’s biodiversity images have been voted winners of SolarPower Europe’s Flora and Fauna photo competition.

The two pictures now feature in SolarPower Europe’s Best Practice Guidelines to Enhance Biodiversity and Land Use efficiency through Solar PV projects

Our friendly hare made it to the front cover, showcasing how responsibly developed solar projects on land can create opportunities to preserve and even help nature flourish.  

The protection of biodiversity and the biosphere in general is critical to the health of our planet  and this is where solar projects on land shows their true value, combating many climate issues and building a more sustainable future.

Our projects offer additional benefits to the land they are developed on, helping to restore soils, providing a haven for native flora and fauna and boosting ecosystem resilience.

Read our biodiversity brochure to find out more about how the land area around solar farms can be actively managed to reinvigorate the local ecosystem.

Solar projects are a solution to decarbonising electricity that also helps protect and enhance our natural world. Take a look at the SolarPower Europe report to see how solar projects can be aligned with the European Union’s environmental targets. 

Thank you to everyone who voted!
