We here report our latest achievements regarding some installations of ASCA® by ARMOR Organic Photovoltaic Modules realized by roll to roll printing. The performances of ASCA® OPV Modules were measured in two sites, in Italy and in Algeria, and monitored over time. We found that 10-20 kWh/m2 of total irradiation are needed to reach nominal performances due to photo-stabilization behavior. Furthermore, a 1.15 kW OPV power plant was realized, vertically integrated on a building wall, and measurements data were collected for each string. Special attention is paid to compare, in terms of energy yield (kWh/kWp), the OPV Plant with a c-Si PV Plant, already present on the same site: OPV showed a gain of 12% on energy yield during the monitoring period.
