Solar Energy


Energy efficiency in buildings can be achieved by reducing consumption and generating energy from renewable sources in an autonomous way.

In particular the solar energy is the most employed solution in the housing sector. Normally, it is converted into electric energy (photovoltaic) or thermal energy (solar-thermal).

The photovoltaic systems (FV) are used to directly turn the solar power into electricity. This is enabled by devices called photovoltaic cells which are made of semiconductors (generally silicon) and generate electricity once they are exposed to sun-light.

The solar-thermal systems use sun radiation to warm water by means of a collector (solar-thermal panel): the water will be stored in a tank afterwards.

Warm-water systems can be designed according to customers’ needs.
