Prothea since October 2009 is implementing the development of 3 solar photovoltaic projects totalling ca. 10MW in Central and Southern Italy.
Thanks to its community and environmental oriented approach, Prothea is developing in a timely manner the different projects. Key of its success is the involvement of the local community: land owners, public administrations and local technical partners are all involved in identifying the best solution to provide renewable energy to the community, minimizing the environmental impact.
Each possible project is pre-screened using an Environmental Impact Assessment procedure that involves biological, geological and hydrological surveys. Only those projects that guarantee the smallest impact on the environment have been selected as location of our power plants.
Principal geographic focus is on the projects is Central and Southern Italy: projects are located in Calabria and Lazio.
Our project design focus on technical aspects (i.e., fixed-axis type plants to be installed over flat lands, limited wind exposition), which, in conjunction with high irradiance (>1350 equivalent hours) and close grid connection (usually on site), guarantee strong economics for the project.
An additional pipeline of projects in Marche and Abruzzo, totalling 5 MW, has been recently started.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
