STRATEGIC VISION DOCUMENT

PVS BLOOM TRIGGERED MW

The triggering of 9 pilot PVPPs in the Sardinia region over various typologies of marginal areas for a total of about 11,843 MW

PVPP 1

  • Location of the PVPP: Industrial Area of Ozieri (SS)
  • Peak power: 2634 kW
  • Area owned by: Industrial Consortium of Ozieri
  • Type of investment (private, public, leasing, mortgage…): Private leasing
  • Kind of support given by PP2: Support to the municipality for the administrative procedure, Support to the PV company for the redaction of Feasibility study
  • Volume of investment: € 7.902.000,00
  • Key turned in the month of: 08/09/2010
  • Prevision of further RES investments around the area: unknown

Municipality of Ozieri - On the Chilivani Industrial Area has been build a PV plant of 2,634 MW by the Sorgenia Solar srl. The municipality has called our agency to confirm the decision of Sorgenia Solar to implement the  PVPP Plant in the Industrial Area. The authorization through a SUAP to build a PV plant have been concluded also with the support of our agency, in the framework of PV in Bloom. Support consisted in local procedures suggestions about soil characterisation.  Project has been developed by Sorgenia Solar with which there is a continuous contact and information exchange on local technical and administrative solutions. Plant has been realised into September 2010 and linked to electric grid the 8th of September 2010. This plant was sold to a financial company the 3rd of August 2010. PEPS engagement it was also to realise and give to the community, for free, the pre feasibility study.

The Roncajette PVPP

  • Location of the PVPP: Landfill Site of Roncajette, Padova – Veneto, Italy
  • Peak power: 1 MWp
  • Area owned by: a consortium of 20 municipalities (
  • Type of investment: the Consorzio di Bacino di Padova 2)  has rented the surface to a temporary association which is public by the 90
  • Volume of investment: about 4.000.000 €
  • Key turned in the month of:  october 2010

The plant has been installed on the landfill of Roncajette, in the Municipality of Ponte San Nicolò (PD). After the involvement in PVs in BLOOM of the Basin Consortium of Padua2, contacts were taken by Unioncamere del Veneto with the competent regional offices dealing with the various phases of the authorization procedure. Meetings with the three main DGs of the Regional Government in charge of the bottleneck passages of the authorization procedure have been organized, in order to sensitize regional officers on the theme of functional re-covering of marginal areas through PVPPs, which, as in the case of Roncajette, can be considered a class of installations that retain special consideration by legislators and administrative officers given their potential impact in terms of land re-qualification and valorisation of resources. The situation was unlocked in May-June 2009 and the authorization was awarded on the 24th of June. Good relations still continue with the Consortium of PD2 that will act as testimonial for other implementations during the next reporting period, in Italy and in the other involved countries.

The Tiretta PVPP

  • Location of the PVPP: Landfill Site of Tiretta di Padernello, Paese (TV)- Italy
  • Peak power: 1 MWp
  • Area owned by: municipality
  • Type of investment: convention among the municipality and it’s participated company
  • Volume of investment: about 2.500.000 €
  • Key turned in the month of: January 2012
The landfill is a long standing problem for our country. It has been inactive for about a decade, but in 1989 Veneto Region authorized a storage of 150 000 cubic meters of earth from a Vicenza foundry. Then, in 1995, Veneto Region allowed a disposal of 315 thousand cubic meters of dangerous waste: paint booths filters, inks, adhesives, drugs. Now it continues to be a source of pollution by leachate.
Since 2000 the Tiretta landfill is considered a polluted site to be reclaimed because it polluted the wells through percolation of a substance derived from bromacile. This product is used for agricultural herbicides, and it poisoned wells in Quinto di Treviso; those wells are still closed by union orders, but we are finalizing risk analysis of the landfill in a few months. This work is arranged with Treviso province and Arpav. In the meanwhile, Arpav analysis certificates are showing a worsening situation determined by release of contaminants found in wells downstream.
I remember that exceeding just one parameter it implies the prosecution of reclaim.
The Tiretta landfill, thanks to the support and action of Unioncamere del Veneto, will have a new future. Of course it will never become a place to bring our children to play, but at least, and it is not so bad, it will be "inoffensive" and for free. A project for safety and requalification of the Tiretta landfill was officially presented: by Paese city and will be partially funded by the Veneto Region, and designed by Priula Consortium and by ENEA.
The innovative aspects of the operation mainly concern technology and economic-financial self-sustainability of the operation.
Tiretta, considered one of the most polluted landfills in the Veneto region, will be covered by a new impermeable layer A photovoltaic park will be build on it, not using traditional panels, but a film with cells able to capture sun's rays. The film will always remain adherent to the waterproof surface, and will consequently change. This technology has been used for the first time in Texas, and it will debut in Italy only in Paese, in the Veneto region.
According to the prefeasibility study drafted by Unioncamere del Veneto, keeping in account the urgency of carrying out a safety measure intervention on the landfill, and the need to reduce consistently the leakage of leachate, making the landfill safety is possible through an intervention with a temporary (20 years or similar) geomembrane capping, allowing to dilute the costs of the intervention by the municipality in possibly 20 years. This will allow the municipality to recover its coffers condition putting away the income that will be created starting from the end of 2012 since the turn of the key of the PV plant saving the money for the definitive capping operations.
The technology used will be the one proposed by UNISOLAR, as in the case of the three pilot experiences of Tessman, leppe and Malagrotta monitored by PVs in BLOOM.
The project will initially be funded by the Veneto Region. 7 million euros coming from the regional government will have to be repaid in 15 years at zero rate, and 388 thousand euros will be received in free grants. The City of Paese will give the money to Priula consortium that will manage the work. The photovoltaic system will produce the resources needed for the return of 7 million euros to the Region, through the sale of produced energy and with the FIT.
Furthermore, thanks to production, and adding income taxes, it will also be possible to support the final capping intervention in 2034, when a new vegetable soil will be put on the landfill. The work is safe even if contributions will be cut. In that case, the waste rate would be increased slightly, but sharing among the municipalities managed by Priula, the raise will be about 0.46 cents each family.
Energy production could already start in 2012.

In Spain, the main general results achieved during the action have been:
The triggering of 2 pilot PVPPs over marginal areas:

PVPP 1
 
Location of the PVPP: Arjona (Jaén)
Peak power: 1.2 MW
Area owned by: private owner
Type of investment (private, public, leasing, mortgage…): private (20) and bank leverage (80)
Kind of support given: providing some technical advice when needed, and carrying out a quality control of the PV modules to be used in the PVPP order to check the real peak power of a module sample
Volume of investment: 4.8 MEur
Key turned in the month of: December 2009
Prevision of further RES investments around the area: The high visual impact of the system, together with the dramatic PV cost decrease is surely creating a mimetic action in the surroundings of the area 

PVPP 2

Location of the PVPP: Vallecas (Madrid)
Peak power: 1.25 MW
Area owned by: Multi-owned
Type of investment (private, public, leasing, mortgage…): private
Kind of support: providing some technical advice when needed, and carrying out a quality control of the PV modules to be used in the PVPP order to check the real peak power of a module sample
Volume of investment: 4.4 MEur
Key turned in the month of: December 2010


Technical advice was provided when needed to both the owners and the EPC suppliers. In addition, a quality control of the PV modules to be used in the PVPP order to check the real peak power of a module sample was carried out.
Another relevant result achieved in Spain, has been the development of a feasibility study of photovoltaic installations on marginal lands in Spain:  Despite the detected real interest of the municipalities in having PVPPs, that considered very interesting the Bloom project approach for the use of degraded terrains, the goal of achieve installed MW in the area of Valencia proved to be impossible due to the evolution of the photovoltaic energy market in Spain in the last years. As a consequence of this evolution the government imposed hard conditions to the installation of new photovoltaic facilities, stating annual limits on the total power that can be installed, and tariffs benefiting the installation on rooftops, instead the
Due to these circumstances of the Spanish scenery, the Chamber of Valencia was forced to propose a change in the objective of installing PVPPs. Instead of promoting new facilities, which proved to be impossible given the market conditions, the Chamber developed a study of feasibility of photovoltaic installations on the ground in Spain, especially on degraded lands, aiming at driving the future policy change proposals in Spain by the Government and other policy makers. This measure was exposed and approved by the representative of EACI, the coordinator of the project, and all partners during the Project Committee meeting in Valencia, on September 7th and 8th of 2010.
The Chamber has developed a Study of feasibility of photovoltaic installations on the ground in Spain, especially on degraded lands, aiming at driving the future policy change proposals in Spain by the Government and other policy makers. The Study analyses the gap between the restoration of marginal terrains in the regular way and the restoration by installing PVPPs. Analyses also different economic solutions that the Government could follow in order to help the installation of PVPPs on marginal areas, and presents a possibility of administrative management for those marginal areas as an special case for the construction of solar facilities.
The study was finally addressed to several bodies of the Spanish and Valencian Governments, with the request that it will be taken into account when carrying out new regulatory developments, and offering the possibility of keeping in touch thereafter for a fuller explanation and support of the Chamber of Valencia in the development of works related to the purpose of the project.
At the date of the preparation of this report the first answer from a government authority was received. The Spanish Office for the Climate Change of the Ministry of Environment addressed a letter of gratitude and congratulations for the work carried out, highlighting its value as contribution to the sustainable development in Spain.

In Slovakia, the main general results achieved during the action have been the triggering of 1 PVPP:
Plant of 1,155 MWp
Location:  Rimavska Sobota
Investment of 7.000.000 Euro
municipality terrain rented by the private investor for a period of 15 years

The Italian–Slovak Chamber of Commerce (PP) delivered support and colaborated with the company Enerco International, an international company operating in energy sector and interested in developing RE projects in Slovakia, and assisted it in the identification of the terrain and negotiation with the local self-government. The Chamber has also assisted the investor in all administrative and legal procedures related.

Finally the PV plantation of 1,15 MW power was built and is being plugged in June of 2011, as one of the last ground PV installation in Slovakia. The legislation has been amended and a serie sof technical restrictions were imposed in Slovakia as of July 2011. PVs installations have been restricted to 140KW on roofs and feed-in-tarifs are decreased twice a year.
