German PV equipment manufacturer, teamtechnik today announced that it has received an order for its TT1400 ECA stringer from an Italian PV manufacturer. The tool will be integrated into a line producing high efficiency heterojunction PV modules.
In a short conversation with pv magazine, the CEO of Italy-based consultancy, Prothea Srl has provided more details on the 500 MW Italian pipeline of market parity PV projects, which it has jointly announced with Limes RE.
Anticipating growing market demand for its UNIQOAT backsheet, Agfa has partnered with Italian company, Ferrbatt to bolster local industry supply and support.
The Italian solar market grew by 25% in the first 11 months of 2017. This growth was mainly determined by the grid connection of several “grid-parity” PV plants totaling 66 MW, which were installed in Montalto di Castro, Italy’s central region of Lazio.
New additions for the first 10 months of this year totaled 352 MW, representing 12% growth compared to the same period a year earlier, and enough solar to meet 8.7% of total power demand.
According to a report from Italy’s GSE, solar power prices on the Italian wholesale electricity market last year were between 5% and 12% lower than the national reference price.
The Italian government-run energy agency, GSE has made it clear that the so-called “Tremonti ambientale” fiscal incentive can only be combined with the incentives of the first two Conto Energia programs.
