Photovoltaic o&m service, a challange for performance optimization

One of the main challenges of the global photovoltaic market is to ensure the profitability of solar systems over time. The photovoltaic o&m service becomes crucial here. O&m means (we have already mentioned in this blog) Operation and Maintenance, but this abbreviation includes all the services that ensure maximum efficiency and maintenance for the photovoltaic system. Over […]

EPC photovoltaic process – The Construction phase

After analyzing the first two phases of the EPC photovoltaic service, this article will focus on the most practical phase of installation of the various components that make up the plant. The main steps that characterize the part of  “Construction” are: Installing the module support structure Whether it is a photovoltaic system on a roof […]

EPC photovoltaic process – The Procurement phase

In this second blog dedicated to the phases that characterize the EPC photovoltaic process, after analyzing the first phase of engineering, we will describe the procurement one. The procurement is necessarily linked to the supply of materials and services, thus the supply of all components that will become part of the previously designed photovoltaic system […]

EPC photovoltaic process – The Engineering phase

Engineering a photovoltaic plant is one of the crucial phases of the entire EPC photovoltaic process; at this stage, variables and calculations must be taken seriously because the ultimate goal is to provide the customer with the best photovoltaic solution achievable according to the stated needs and the availability of space and investment. Although preliminary […]

Revamping of ground mounted pv plants: hydrogeological risk and how to act to not lose productivity.

The hydrogeological risk is one factor to keep in mind both when planning to build a new solar power plant, or when external factors or the nature affect an existing one. When this happens, ground-mounted pv plants reduce their productivity. A decline in productivity leads to an increase in the time needed to return from […]

The advantages of rooftop solar systems

Rooftop solar power plant, even said rooftop solar system, is a photovoltaic plant that has its pv panels installed on the roof of a building. The urban environment provides a large amount of empty rooftop spaces and can inherently avoid the potential land use and environmental concerns. The maximum dimension of a rooftop solar system […]

What does it mean O&M and why it is so important?

A photovoltaic system must be kept perfectly efficient in order to ensure top performance. Understanding this aspect can lead to a decline in energy production performance in the medium to long term. Verifying the efficiency of your photovoltaic system it may seem simple, but It is not easy to maintain a constant consistency both for […]

What is a photovoltaic EPC?

A photovoltaic system is a symbol of environmental responsibility and also a low-risk investment with good returns. But who or what is in fact an EPC?  Literally epc means: engineering, procurement, and construction. EPC is a particular form of contracting arrangement that allow to manage efficiently all aspects and stages of the realization process of a […]
