The MicrogenDB website closed down on Wednesday 2nd June 2021.

The MicrogenDB Forum ( will remain open for the foreseeable future.

Sadly, the Sheffield Solar research group no longer has the capacity or funding to update the MicrogenDB website.

Without updates the MicrogenDB website will be increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attack which may impact the site itself, the Sheffield Solar research group and/or users of the website.

The MicrogenDB website has run since 2011 and has provided a useful contribution to the development of solar PV in the UK.

The Sheffield Solar website (, PV_Live and PV_Forecast will remain up for the foreseeable future.

We would like to thank all those who have contributed data, feedback and discussion points over the years.
