  2. 2. Background <ul><li>Challenges: </li></ul><ul><li>Low incentive rates </li></ul><ul><li>Toiling bureaucratic procedures </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of long-term political vision </li></ul><ul><li>Grid access problems </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of skills in public authorities </li></ul><ul><li>High concentration of market shares </li></ul><ul><li>Unattractive feed-in laws </li></ul><ul><li>High economic risk for small investors </li></ul>Small-scale PVPPs <ul><li>Latent opportunities: </li></ul><ul><li>Optimization of unproductive marginal areas </li></ul><ul><li>High degree of environmental sustainability </li></ul><ul><li>Existing gap between sun radiance levels and employment of photovoltaic technology </li></ul><ul><li>Great potential political impact </li></ul><ul><li>Exploitation of potential matches with existing operative sites or plants </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why to go marginal? (1/1) <ul><li>The irrational use of land resources for industrial, commercial and in some cases agricultural activities has lead in many countries to the abandonment of vast terrains in degraded conditions; </li></ul><ul><li>Land degradation is often the result of human activities leading to the impoverishment of the soil, the dispersion of pollutants, and the impossibility to use the terrain for other purposes. Landfills, quarries, former military sites/supply-storages, areas around major infrastructures such as airports, electrical substations, power plants are examples; </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why to go marginal? (1/2) <ul><li>Starting new activities using marginal terrains avoiding the sacrifice of terrains subtracted to agriculture or to the landscape is not only ethical, but also economically convenient with respect to leaving them abandoned; </li></ul><ul><li>The transformation of greenfields into brownfields, more noticeable in areas of high urbanization/industrialization continues inexorably and must be contained: little attention now will lead to big problems in the future. </li></ul>
  5. 5. PVs in BLOOM: Impacts achieved <ul><li>Indirect involvement of 2.163 European Municipalities sensitized to the PVs in BLOOM philosophy; </li></ul><ul><li>Direct engagement of 67 Municipalities across Europe from the partners countries in RES </li></ul><ul><li>promotion for enhancing strategic eco-sustainable policies and strategies focusing on the recovering of marginal areas; </li></ul><ul><li>Collection of 50 European best practices and models for recovering low/zero value terrains through ground PV plants (PVPPs). </li></ul>
  6. 6. PVs in BLOOM: Impacts achieved <ul><li>Triggering of more than 19 MWp of PVPPs on marginal terrains in Europe thanks to the support of project partners. </li></ul>
