The Strategic Vision Document, offering projections on Europe’s potentialities in terms of electrical energy production from PV plants used top reclaim marginal areas will soon be released.
The issues touched by the Document range from the strategic role of public administrations in urban and landscape planning, case studies on PVPP profitability, best practices of marginal area reclamation and much more.
An abstract of the Document will be available on the web-site (www.pvsinbloom.eu) or in the complete version upon request to one of the Project partners.

THE PVS IN BLOOM EUROPEAN PORTAL

obrázok1_0_6.png

The Project: the PVs in BLOOM Project aims at promoting the installation of ground PV plantations of medium and small size ranging from 50 kWp to 1-2 MWp on marginal areas (PVPPS), that is terrains that have lost their primaryf unction and do not respond anymore to investments.

There covering of marginal areas through PVPPs allows to exploit resources that would otherwise represent a missed investment (if not a cost) for public administrations, landowners and citizens.

The website is available at www.pvsinbloom.eu and collects PVPP best practises in different regions of  Europe, information about Project activities and publications. A map that showsthe position of the PVPP Best Practices is also active on the homepage of the web-site.

The opportunities for companies: the Project also aims at supporting networking among relevant actors of the PVmarket and stimulating investments. The PVs in BLOOM European portal gives free visibility to companies and other private and public stakeholders working in the field of photovoltaics, and offers an outlook on municipalities and other actors potentially interested in investing in PV plants.

PHOTOVOLTAIC IN SLOVAKIA GETS COMPETITIVE

mapa_radiacienew2.png

Slovakia’s new renewable energy legislation has gone into effect September 1, 2009. The act provides a favorable feed-in-tariff system, which includes photovoltaic energy power generation. The feed-in tariff scheme of the act is based on a “premium payment on top of the basic electricity price set by the Office for Regulation of Network Industries (the Office) for a certain type of renewable energy. The premium payment is equal to the difference between the basic price and the price of electricity set by the Office for the electricity to cover losses in the distribution grid. The Office sets the basic price mainly depending on the date of initial operation, reconstruction or modernization of a power generating installation, its installed capacity and its used technology.
A producer of RHEC Electricity is entitled to a premium on the basic electricity price for 15 years after the initial operation, reconstruction or modernization of a power generating installation. The basic price of electricity used for the calculation of the premium will be the same for the entire period during which the electricity producer is entitled to the premium. Nevertheless, the Office may increase this price by a coefficient of nuclear inflation and a coefficient reflecting the technology used.”
The Act also provides for other support, such as (i) the right of RHEC Electricity producers to priority connection, access, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity, (ii) an offtake of RHEC Electricity by operators of regional distribution grids to cover the distribution grid’s losses and (iii) obligatory assumption of liability by an operator of a regional electricity distribution grid for a deficiency of RHEC Electricity producers.”
