GREEN DEVELOPMENT AND TOURISM; PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS WORKSHOP

greece_1.jpg

Special success achieved by the workshop on "Green development and tourism; Photovoltaic panels” organized by the Development Institute of Pelion in cooperation with the Municipal Development Company of Milies, the Municipality of Argalasti, the Municipality of Sipiada and the University of Thessaly, Friday 20 and Saturday 21 November.
The main aim of the workshop was to inform members of political boards of Municipalities and entrepreneurs of tourism of the development of renewable sources of energy and especially photovoltaic panels.
Certain references were for the types of PV’s and the changes of PV’s legislation. More specific and in accordance with the new law the three most important provisions that relate directly to interested investors are:
1. Binding timetable for the evaluation of applications for licenses and exceptions permits electricity produced by photovoltaic systems.
2. New sales prices of solar electricity used, with fall off entry prices in the system since August 2010. These values should be guaranteed for a 20 years (and the old contracts running already) and will be adjusted annually by 25 inflation last year. These prices lock with the signature of the contract with the National Electricity Enterprise and then allow additional 18 months for the implementation of the project by using this value. If the project is delayed more than 18 months, it will take the value at the time of start-up. This means that prices remain stable up to 2011.
3. Production licences or exemption decisions for the production of electricity from photovoltaic panel stations may not be transferred before launching stations. Prospective investors who expect the licenses and exemptions authorization should move in the case of other supporting documents required for the submission of the dossier of the investment plan forecasts development law 5415/04. This is the adoption of environmental studies and conditions link from the National Electricity Enterprise, for exceptions and production, while special licences for the production licenses and license installation is required. It is recalled that the development law provides grant rate of 40 of the budget of the project, with at least 25 own contribution and the remaining amount from the Bank lending. Requests for grant supported by techno study and the necessary supporting documents submitted to the Ministry of economy. Investors need to move quickly, as the approval process is time consuming.

On 18th February Italian – Slovak Chamber of Commerce presented PVs In Bloom project at the Eilat-Eilot International Renewable Energy Conference www.eilatenergy.com , one of the world's most important renewable energy events. The conference focuses on the latest innovations in renewable energy.
The innovative approach of PVs In Bloom certainly helped Vice President, Dott. Michele Bologna and General secretary Dott. A. Villa of Italian – Slovak chamber of commerce to discuss opportunities of cooperation between Intelligent Energy Europe agency and EERAE (Eilat-Eilot Regional Alternative Energy Project) for future project calls.
Israel presented to internationally-recognized alternative energy companies, experts and investors from around the world its plans to open projects for 150 MW of renewable energy power to be produced through regional model, creating exceptional economic growth that can be applied to other localities.
As Noam Ilan, Director, Technology and Business Development for the EERAE Project said: “this project will foster innovation and lead to exciting developments in the international renewable energy community”.

regione_piemonte_0.gif

Since the 1st of December 2009 in Piedmont region (North-East of  Italy) local bodies and enterprises may apply for funding to create or enhance photovoltaic systems on exhausted landfills or landfills in the post-mortem phase. The subsidized loan is disbursed by the bank chosen by the applicant up to 80 of the investment. The first allocation amounts to 10 million euros, as part of the Structural Funds (EFRD) 2007-2013.
The eligible photovoltaic system must have a power over 50kWp, including those using thin-film cells or third generation advanced components. Upon particular environmental conditions, installation for the production of electricity from solar energy through thermodynamic cycles shall also be eligible.
Eligible costs are technical expenses, supply and installation of the plant, any construction work (only when absolutely necessary and related to the installation or integration within existing structures).

36 NEW LARGE PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN SLOVAKIA IN 2010

seps.jpg

Slovak power engineers plugged last year to the network more than a dozen solar power plants with total capacity of 213 kilowatts, informed the representatives of electricity distribution companies. Of the total electricity consumption in Slovakia, however, solar power supplies for only a small fraction of their power under favorable weather, enough for about one hundred households.
In the next two years, in Slovakia will be completed probably 36 large photovoltaic power plants with total capacity to 120 megawatts. Their construction was approved in December by Slovak Electricity Transmission System (SEPS). Favorable opinion of SEPS is a requirement for consent from the Ministry of Economy. Other applications SEPS refused as a threat to the network regulation. Of a total of 97 applications power engineers reviewed 57 projects, 21 were rejected.
