  • Projects, developed by Ren It, will provide energy to Italy under the 4th Conto Energia

The solar park spans two sites in central Italy, one in Aveani and the other in Savini. These sites combine to form one of the largest Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) power plants in the country.

The CPV plants were developed and designed by Ren It and built by Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) company DELTA, which specializes in power plant development with a focus on renewable energy projects.

The SolFocus CPV technology deployed at the site, which was recently on display at Intersolar North America, utilizes a system of patented reflective optics to concentrate sunlight 650 times onto small, highly efficient solar cells. The high-efficiency (30% efficient at converting sunlight to electricity) SolFocus SF-1100S systems feature dual-axis tracking for consistent energy delivery throughout the day, resulting in optimized kilowatt hour production. It also offers environmental benefits including no water usage for energy production, a small land footprint with dual use potential, and no permanent shadowing or wildlife corridor disruption.
