February 27th, 2017New GSE regulation on maintenance standards and revamping criteria for operating PV plantsREA insights
GSE has recently published the awaited technical document on “Maintenance and revamping interventions on operating PV plants” (see file attached).
The new regulation defines the procedures to be employed in case of revamping intervention on PV plants, in order to comply with the objective requirements for tariffs access and maintenance (pursuant to Conto Energia decrees) as well as the prescriptions of the decree of 23 June 2016. The document covers the following topics:
- Reporting requirements to GSE in case of revamping interventions with significant effect in plant characteristics or configuration;
- The timing and list of documents to be sent to GSE for any intervention type.
Compared to the previous version of the document (published in august 2015 but pulled back soon after) the threshold on energy production increase (3%) it is no longer present in the text. Does persist the limit on “incentivized” power increase, fixed up to 1% for plants over 20 kW, with however no limitation on increase of non-incentivized power.
The new rules will certainly affect PV plants’ management efforts, raising up compliance standards in carrying out plant’s administrative and technical activities, requiring more rigorous and proactive approach in GSE relationship management.
In order to discuss the new regulation impacts on PV assets and the combed effect of GSE control activity, REA has organized an executive workshop that will take place in Milan next 30th of March. For registration and infos: firstname.lastname@example.org
