Photovoltaic plants

Photovoltaic systems play an increasingly relevant role in our Group’s strategies for sustainable development. As a matter of fact, by designing new systems, Acea has embarked on a development path to produce energy from photovoltaics. Our 2020-2024 Business Plan worth 4.7 billion euro, 2.1 billion of which dedicated to achieving sustainability targets, is conceived to contribute to the decarbonization and energy transition process also by increasing the production of energy obtained from renewable sources.

To this end, the photovoltaic projects aim to reach an installed capacity of 747 MW by 2024.

The Basilicata’s largest photovoltaic plant

In June 2022 we inaugurated in the Municipality of Ferrandina, province of Matera, a photovoltaic plant which has an installed capacity of approximately 20MW, giving an annual output of around 36GWh. The plant avoids 15 kt of CO2 emission per year and is capable of supplying enough energy to satisfy the annual requirement of more than 10,000 households.

Tracker for photovoltaic plants

Tracking devices allow solar panels to move during the day and follow the movement of the sun. Trackers installed on the plants can be of two different types: single axis trackers, that allow panels to move along the axis, or dual axis trackers, that provide total freedom of movement.
