CPV company Solergy will be debuting its two chief products: Solergy CPV and Solergy Cogen CPV. The CPV systems use an all-glass optical concentrating lens, which Solergy claims, in combination with its tracking and basic energy unit is a system that generates a significant amount of energy in comparison to other PV and CPV products.
Additionally, Solergy announced that it will be working with the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) for a solar installation at the Pantelleria Airport in Sicily. The solar power plant will also serve as a test site for Solergy’s CPV and cogeneration technology in its ability to produce solar electricity and heat at the Sicilian airport. Construction is slated to begin during the first quarter of 2011.
“We are pleased to announce our letter of intent to work with Solergy on this unique and important project,” said Alessandro Cardi, central director of airport infrastructure at ENAC. “Solergy’s combination of high efficiency and cogeneration make it especially well-suited to serve the significant electricity and air conditioning requirements of our airports. We strive to make Italy’s airports greener, and are confident that this project can then serve as a model for achieving clean energy self-sufficiency in other airports in Italy.”
