The monitoring of the Programme has been mainly focussed on the analysis and the statistical evaluation of the data of about 37,000 plants, corresponding to a total power of 470 MW, already put in operation during the years 2007, 2008 and early 2009. Electric, energetic and architectural aspects have been evaluated for each plant. Moreover, these plants have been characterised according to site location, building concerned, mounting typology, modules and inverters technology and provenience. As far as the plants realized in the framework of the first phase of the “Conto energia” Programme, the analysis and the evaluations have been limited to the general and technical aspects only. For the plant built in the framework of the new phase of the Programme, a richer variety of data has been collected. As a consequence, on the basis of energy production and irradiation data, as well as outage periods, the analysis and the statistical evaluation has been extent to plant performance and reliability as well as trend of costs of systems and components. Finally through the monitoring of the status of the Italian photovoltaic industry has been evaluated the net value of photovoltaic business in Italy during the last years.
