CCE Solar Invest GmbH has secured financing to build 600 MW of PV capacity in Italy.
Italian startup EnergyGlass has developed a solar tile with 4 mm double-laminated safety glass. It is available in black, white and colored versions and has power outputs ranging from 120 W to 290 W. The tiles can be used to replace conventional roofs or they can be integrated into existing rooftops.
The Italian power electronics specialist has launched a single-phase inverter, a three-phase device, and a residential battery. The three products will be available for sale starting from January.
The lowest bid came in at €0.0618/kWh and was offered for a 23 MW wind farm. The lowest bid for PV technology was €0.0639/kWh. All bids were slightly below the ceiling price of €0.07/kWh.
Developed by an Italian manufacturer, the panel is available in three versions with a power output of 100, 120, and 240 W and has a weight of 5 kg. It is encapsulated in thermoformable plastic technical polymers and can be connected in series with other modules around the same post.
Italy’s richest and most dynamic region continues to support solar+storage installations with rebates.
The shallow pilings used on solar farms can offer relief to subsoil structures which might otherwise be threatened by regular plowing and, as Italy’s biggest solar project has demonstrated, site surveying for PV projects can unearth hidden delights.
