Integrated PV with innovative features

Printer-friendly versionInvia a un amico

The italian law (DM 05/05/2011 - Title III) provides that pv plants that use non-conventional modules and special components developed to complement architectural elements and replace the buildings, are subjected to specific incentives.
The incentives are addressed to:
- individuals, legal persons, public entities and condominium housing units
- pv plants having power not less than 1 kW and not more than 5 MW
In order to access the incentives mentioned above, pv modules and components must be used with the following features:

1. special modules and components, developed specifically to complement and replace architectural elements of buildings, such as:
a) roofs of buildings
b) opaque vertical surfaces
c) transparent or translucent surfaces
d) open surfaces such as doors or windows

2. modules and components that have significant technological innovations

3. modules designed and manufactured to perform fundamental architectural features such as:
a) protection or thermal regulation of the building;
b) waterproofing of the underlying building structure;
c) mechanical seal comparable with the element replaced.

The incentives for the year 2012 are also shown:

Pv Roof Tiles

The traditional building products to ensure the mechanical seal, such as clay tiles, slate or ceramic materials, can be replaced by special pv tiles to perform the same function of waterproofing the roof.

Pv tiles must be included only in the two following categories:

- Items made of pv cells placed on an element of traditional coverage.
The tile (or plate) must be part of the module and the whole set has to be assembled in the factory, providing a single product certified in accordance with the Annex 1 of the Decree;

- Rigid pv modules that reproduce an element of traditional coverage and that have shape and size of the buildings elements that they replace.

Annex 1 to the DM 5/5/2011 - Technical Standards

The pv modules must be tested and verified by laboratories accredited for specific tests, according to UNI CEI EN ISO / IEC 17025.
Such laboratories must be accredited by certification bodies belonging to the EA (European Accreditation Agreement) or certification bodies who have established mutual agreements with EA or within ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation).
Pv plants must be made with components that ensure the performances described in the CEI Guide 82-25.
Within six months from the date of entry into force of this Decree, the CEI Guide is updated with performance parameters in order to consider technological evolution of pv components. In particular, the update ensures that, at start-up time, the relationship between the energy or power product into alternating current and the energy or power producible in alternating current (determined by solar radiation incident on the surface of the modules, the rated power and temperature operation of the modules) is at least 0.78 when using inverters having power up to 20 kW and 0.8 when using higher power inverters.
(…)
In the case of pv plants referred to Article 3, paragraph 1, letter f), notwithstanding the certification required above, are allowed pv modules non-certified according to CEI EN 61215 (for crystalline silicon modules) or IEC 61646 (for thin-film modules) only if there are not commercially available certified products that allow to achieve the type of integration designed for the specific system.
In this case it is required a manufacturer's declaration that the product is designed and manufactured to pass the tests required by the standard CEI EN 61215 or IEC 61646. The declaration must be supported by certificates made by an accredited laboratory, and obtained on similar modules. This laboratory must be accredited EA (European Accreditation Agreement) or must have established mutual recognition agreements with EA or ILAC.
In the case of pv plants referred to in Article 3, paragraph 1, letter r), notwithstanding the certification required above and up to December 31, 2012, are allowed pv modules non-certified according to CEI EN 62108 in the only case that has been started the certification process and that the modules have already passed successful tests of the essential guide CEI 82-25 to ensure compliance with the minimum technical safety and quality of the product.
In this case it is required a manufacturer's declaration that the product is being certified under IEC 62108. The declaration must be supported by certificates issued by an accredited laboratory, showing the of the minimum technical requirements for safety and quality of the product given in IEC Guide 82-25. This laboratory must be accredited EA (European Accreditation Agreement) or must have established mutual recognition agreements with EA or ILAC.
