ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment) is carrying out, in the framework of an agreement with the GSE (Manager of the Electric Services) the monitoring of the “Conto energia” Programme. The activities have been articulated in three main lines. The first one, aimed at evaluating the Programme trend, consists in the analysis of the technical and economic data of all the plants installed and put in operation. Up to now, the data of about 10,000 plants have been analysed. Detailed plant performance evaluation is the objective of the second line of the agreement. Activities are based on a standard measurement programme. Operational data of a sample of 25 plants, representing the most significant plant typology and module technology will be collected and analysed in order to evaluate the most significant index of performance such as yields, efficiencies and performance ratio. The third activity line of the agreement is aimed to check the status of the Italian photovoltaic industry and research. In particular each operator is classified according to the capacity and the real production, the characteristics of the products, the process phases and the raw materials used as well as prices and import export data.
