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 Cable

Wholesale PV Wires & Cables

Solar wires and cables, which are also called solar panel cables and PV wires, refer to wires used to connect solar panels with the photovoltaic system.

Choosing the right wire for solar energy systems is critical for solar users for their smooth functioning and remaining intact. Getting these wires wrong and choose PV wires that are too small for a PV system, the battery bank may not charge fully and as a result, the appliances consumers use, may not work at their full capacity.

Types of Solar Wires and Cables

  • Single metal wire core
  • Multi-stranded conductor type wires

The types of electrical wires or solar panel wires are according to their conductor type. If a wire has a single metal wire core, it is a single-stranded conductor. If it has a multiple wire core, it is a multi-stranded conductor. So, there are basically two wire types.

Difference between a single-stranded conductor and a multi-stranded conductor

The difference between a single-stranded conductor and a multi-stranded conductor is that the use of a single-stranded conductor type wire is common in domestic wiring and works fine for a solar system.

Multi-stranded conductor-type wires perform better in the environments with continuous vibration, such as mobile applications in cars, planes, boats, and trains.

Also, if an area is prone to frequent and extremely high winds, it is ideal to consider multi-stranded conductor wires as they are more flexible and durable.

Sunlight Resistant PV Wire Ratings

Their Amps rate the efficiency of wires and cables for solar systems.

The higher the rating of the current (amps), the thicker the PV wire has to be. If a solar system produces 7 amps, a minimum of 7-amp wire is required. It will be even better to go for a little higher like 9 or 10-amp wire, just to make sure it can handle the current.

If solar users use wires rated at fewer amps than their solar systems produce, the voltage will drop, and the solar panel wire will most likely heat up and eventually may even catch fire causing damage to the solar energy system and to the home.

Solar wires and cables are like plumbing pipes. If too much water pressure (amps) flows through them, they will burst. Therefore, the system would need a bigger pipe (wire) that can handle the pressure (amps) produced by the solar system.

Features of High-quality Wires and Cables:

  • Optimum performance
  • High-tensile strength
  • Low maintenance.
  • Sunlight Resistant
