PV Contenders Battle it Out in Italian Mountains

PV Contenders Battle it Out in Italian Mountains

As PV installations under the 2007 Secondo Conto Energia ministerial decree of the Italian feed-in tariff scheme exceed 140,000, for a combined total of 2.7 GW, and new incentives encourage renewable energy developments through the 2010 Terzo Conto Energia decree, the opportunity to assess the real performance of available PV technologies have never been greater . Charged with supplying the energy needs and reducing the CO2 contribution of Italy's Bolzano Dolomiti airport (ABD), the field is the largest Italian PV experimental installation as well as one of the first large ground-mounted systems on Italian airport terrain. It was developed with co-financing from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2007-2013 of the European Union. The plant is owned by ABD, while EURAC's Institute for Renewable Energy is the scientific body responsible for studying the performance...
