What is Solar Energy in Italy?

The solar energy in Italy has seen a major surge in this industry among other European countries such as Germany, Turkey, Spain, and the Netherlands.

In July 2005, the country started its first “Conto Energia” program to support the development of renewable power, and the result so far has been remarkable. In 2018, Italy added solar PV capacity of 437 MW, and its PV market grew by 7%.

The major driving factor in the Italian PV market has been solar rooftops, and the number of solar installation projects with more than 1 MW capacity increased in in 2017 and 2018.

Italy is considered the country of sunshine which makes the nation very favourable for the installations of solar energy production plants and farms. In Central-Southern Italy, the annual solar radiation can range from 4.7 kWh per square metre per day, and 5.4 kWh per square metre per day in Sicily. While the other regions also have a very high solar energy production potential making Italy one of the leading countries for the production of solar energy, as well as in the sector of research and technological innovation.

The solar energy in Italy has seen a major surge in this industry among other European countries such as Germany, Turkey, Spain, and the Netherlands. Italy’s PV market is known as one of the photovoltaic markets that definitely deserve a place in the solar energy spotlight. In fact, during the first ten years of the new millennium, Italy was on the third spot after Germany and Spain to experience a significant boom in solar installations after encouraging the citizen through government incentives. This made most of the manufacturers and citizens embrace and support solar power.

In 2010, The Montalto di Castro Photovoltaic Power Station was completed and it is considered the largest photovoltaic power station in Italy with 85 MW solar capacity. Along with this largest PV power station, there are also other large PV plants like Cellino San Marco with 42.7 MW capacity, San Bellino with 70.6 MW capacity, and Sant’ Alberto with solar capacity of 34.6 MW.

Aside from conventional solar PV technology, Italy is also known for its developing concentrated solar power (CSP) technology. To function efficiently, this concentrated solar technology requires higher direct solar irradiation, which makes the country suitable for this technique as Italy has more exposure to sunlight. Furthermore, the southern regions including the islands of Sardinia and Sicily also offer good conditions for CSP technology, the reason why the Italian government provided large investments to promote this solar power development.

Currently, there are three solar plants running in the country. The first one is the Archimede solar plant, which was installed on the island of Sicily in 2010, attaining a solar capacity of 5 MW. Moreover, planning and promotion for the CSP technology will undergo several additional projects which would add another solar capacity of 360 MW, annually.

As of now, Italy for being known as “sunshine-blessed” country is currently the second-largest market in Europe in terms of installed solar power generation capacity. Which then, achieved over 20 GW of photovoltaic (PV) power plants in 2018. This year, the Italian solar power market is expected to enter a new series of growth, particularly investing in “grid parity” projects that mostly rely on corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs).

PV Monitors

Switching to solar does not end when you install your solar panel systems. To determine whether you’re getting the best return of investment to your solar panel system’s initial cost, you have to monitor your system throughout its lifespan.

Solar monitoring provides you real-time visibility of the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity that your solar PV panels are generating over time. Having the ability to track how much money your solar power system is saving you in energy costs is indeed a good perk. 

By monitoring your solar power system you can track the power output of your system assuring that your solar PV panels are at their best function and shape. Besides, having 24/7 solar monitoring can give you peace of mind that your panels are well maintained and working as efficiently as possible. Importantly, you’ll also.

What are PV Monitors?

The Photovoltaic (PV) monitor is a device used to track and monitor the overall performance of your solar panel system. PV monitoring system gathers and evaluates the number of parameters being measured in a PV module to track and assess its functionality and overall performance. 

If you want to test whether your PV system has reliable and stable operation, it would be better to get an effective monitoring system. Besides, the PV monitoring system records and analyzes various electricity generation indices including its fault occurrences. However,  take note that some costs and complexity of conventional PV monitoring systems are restricted to large-scale solar power systems. 

Fortunately, over the past decade, many solar manufacturers produce a wide variety of PV monitoring systems for different purposes and solar capacities.

How PV Monitors Work?

PV monitors allow the solar users to know if the energy being produced by the solar system is generated in a quick and simple way, and aligned with the software installed with the PV monitor. By using solar monitoring, you can easily record and assess the daily energy production of your solar panels, including their lifetime production. You can also have quick access to detailed information about your solar generation any time you want online or by using a mobile app. Aside from keeping a track of how your system is working, you can also keep an eye on the amount of money you’re saving from installing a PV monitoring system. Besides, if your solar panel system isn’t working, solar monitoring will help you detect and fix the problems easily, getting things working properly again.

Should I Get a PV Monitoring System?

Solar panel systems are investments that you should maintain and protect from damages. With that being said, you should not just rely on the installation warranty. You can prevent those future problems if you have a monitoring system that allows you to detect and avoid the problem at first occurrence. Staying ahead of the problem by using advanced systems is way better than facing the problem at its worst and costly condition. Besides, it can also save both your time and money in the long run.
