Aeternum – The New Concept of a PV Module

  1. 1. Aeternum – The New Concept of a PV Module Eng. Claudio Liciotti - Brandoni Solare S.p.A. San Francisco – USA - July 9. 2013
  2. 2. Contents • Brandoni Solare S.p.A. : Who we are • What Brandoni Solare has done until now • Market changing: From PV Module to PV Solution • Aeternum system: the new concept of PV Module/Solution • Installation of Aeternum PV Modules • Tests already performed / ongoing Test • Key point in the PV Modules design
  3. 3. “Furthermore, some newcomers seem to have a lot of potential, such as Brandoni Solare S.p.A., which is a relevant company for sanitary equipment group Brandoni. Brandoni Solare intends to become one of the most prominent module producers in the Italian PV market. For the production of modules, the company Brandoni Solare S.p.A. will make use of a German manufacture semiautomatic production line with a production capacity of 20 MW/year. Aim of Brandoni Solare S.p.A. is to increase its production capacity up to 40 MW/year in 2010.” Source: "The Italian Photovoltaik Market 2008 - Overcoming Obstacles“ - EuPD Research Brandoni Solare project was born in January 2005. After a market research. Mr. Luciano Brandoni, the president of Brandoni group, resolved to start the production of PV modules. Brandoni Solare company was founded in August 2007 and we started the rump up of one of the first automatic line at the end of the year 2007. Brandoni Solare S.p.A. : Who we are
  4. 4. Brandoni Solare aim: Production of high quality PV modules Current capacity: 55MW/yr Employees: 39 Brandoni Solare S.p.a. - Manufacturing Plant - Via Jesina, 3 60022 Castelfidardo (AN) – ITALY Brandoni Solare S.p.a. - Registered Office - Via O.Pigini, 8 60022 Castelfidardo (AN) – ITALY Brandoni Solare S.p.A. : Who we are
  5. 5. Currently we are producing PV modules in our production plant in Castelfidardo - Italy Brandoni Solare S.p.A. : Who we are
  6. 6. European PV Market Segmentation 2012 European PV market segmentation in 2012 (%) - Source: EPIA – GLOBAL MARKET OUTLOOK Tendency: - Reduction in utility scale projects - Increasing of Industrial & Commercial Roof-Top - High increasing of Residential BIPV - Follow the markets with incentive European PV Market Segmentation System Category Size Type of Installation Residential 3-10 kWp Roof-Top/BIPV Commercial 100kWp Roof-Top/BIPV Industrial 1 MW Roof-Top Utility Scale 1-50 MW Ground mounted Residential 21% Commercial 32% Industrial 19% Utility Scale 28%
  7. 7. The photovoltaic market is trying to become a mature market. The great development of the global market in the last years has resulted in: - Increasing of global PV annual installations - Increasing of PV modules global production capacity (OVERCAPACITY) - Increasing of raw materials global production capacity - Development of the production process - Development of the product - Cost reduction Market changing
  8. 8. The cost reduction of PV systems was really a driver in the PV industry Average Price for PV Rooftop Systems in Germany (10kWp - 100kWp) Source: data BSW-Solar & Graph PSE AG Cost reduction
  9. 9. - Focusing on Residential, Commercial & Industrial Roof-Top PV market - Market differentiation - R&D on new reliable products for new markets - Industrial sustainable cost reduction Brandoni Solare S.p.A. aims PV Module Industrial sustainable cost reduction Reduction of the cost of raw materials Attention not affecting the reliability of the modules Reduction of the cost of the process Product standardization Reduction of the cost of installation PV Module take also place of other installation components
  10. 10. According to the above aims we redesign the PV module concept. Redesign of a PV module Aeternum The New Concept of a PV Module Use of reliable Raw Materials Installation on different kind of roof Reduction of installation components Reduction of installation time Possibility of using of Micro inverters Waterproof PV installation Easy & smart installation High mechanical resistance
  11. 11. AETERNUM is a patented BIPV solution composed by: -Photovoltaic modules BRP6336064F-XXX-AE It is a laminate equipped with a special aluminum profile only in one side. 2 of the other side are equipped with a L-shape profile. One side is frameless. Aeternum System Special aluminum profile L-shape profiles L-shape profiles
  12. 12. AETERNUM is a patented BIPV solution composed by: -Photovoltaic modules BRP6336064F-XXX-AE The modules is laminated using: -4 mm front glass with AR -Front Encapsulant with Low UV cut off -Back Encapsulant with UV cut off. -Black Backsheet foil PET based with high hydrolysis performance Aeternum System
  13. 13. AETERNUM is a patented BIPV solution composed by: -Aluminum eave equipped with rubber gaskets One in the left side of each modules column; one in the right side of each modules column -A special aluminum profile One for each columns of modules Aeternum System
  14. 14. AETERNUM is a patented BIPV solution composed by: -WOOD LATHS 100x50mm -5mm BUTYL TAPE -SELF-TAPPING SCREW, STAINLESS STEEL 4,2x38 -SELF-TAPPING SCREW, STAINLESS STEEL 5,5x45 Aeternum System
  15. 15. 1.INSTALLATION OF THE WOODEN LATHS Mount the wooden laths 50x100mm, pitch 1133mm Assembly instruction
  16. 16. 1.INSTALLATION OF THE WOODEN LATHS The fixing of the wood laths to the roof slab must be via M10 threaded rod or self-tapping screw or other suitable anchoring system. The wood strip must be drilled for the positioning of the fixing screws. The nut or the screw head must not protrude beyond the height of the strip. Assembly instruction
  17. 17. 2. INSTALLATION OF THE 1st ROW OF PV MODULES Special aluminum profiles are fixed to the wooden strips using 2 self-tapping screws Assembly instruction
  18. 18. 2. INSTALLATION OF THE 1st ROW OF PV MODULES The modules of the 1st row are inserted into the U-shaped Special Profile; the modules are prefixed to the wood laths through the holes in the L-shape profiles using n.2 self-tapping screws (cylinder head screw). Assembly instruction

INSTALLATION OF THE LAST ROW OF PV MODULES The last modules row are inserted into the U-shaped Special Profile of the modules in the foregoing row; the modules are prefixed to the wood laths through the holes in the L-shape profiles using n.2 self-tapping screws (cylinder head screw) as above. Assembly instruction
  22. 22. 4. INSTALLATION OF THE LAST ROW OF PV MODULES Assembly instruction
  23. 23. 5. INSTALLATION OF THE ALUMINUM EAVE The last step is the installation of the aluminum cave to definitely fix the column of modules. To obtain a waterproof roof, it is necessary to put, between the aluminum eave and the modules, a 5mm BUTYL TAPE. After that, it is necessary to fix the eave to the wooden strip using self- tapping screws. Assembly instruction
