I.S.O.L.A., acronym of Islanding Systems Operation into Lonely Areas is a system devised by IVPC for the production of electrical energy from renewable sources in areas where no distribution network was developed (WATCH THE VIDEO). The off-grid stationary application of I.S.O.L.A. is able to generate electricity using the natural energy resources found in the area and manage power flows feeding the user/s either instantly or accumulating the energy produced during a time mismatch. The main component of the system is in fact a regulator of energy flows that decides, based on the system requirements and on the logics that are meant to be achieved, where to withdraw energy and where to direct it. The system I.S.O.L.A. is characterized by high design flexibility thanks to the modular scheme of its components. Such a feature - that is undoubtedly one of its major strengths on the market - allows the user to both select the energy sources and appropriately size the performance so as to meet a wide range of possible applications. Wind, solar, hydroelectric and biomass can be used as sources of renewable energy, and further, not yet standardized applications cannot be excluded. In any case, it is possible to exploit one or more available resources even in a combined way. The accumulation system is dimensioned according to the user’s needs, so that it is possible to get different operating autonomy scales of various sizes of power. In its standard configuration, the system guarantees the delivery of nominal 72 kW for 12h, with voltage and frequency of 400V and 50 Hz respectively. Based on the user’s needs, the system is scalable up to home sizes from 6 to 10 kW. In addition, for special needs of high requirements, it is possible to size and realize solutions with powers of the order of MW.
Main possible applications
The main fields of application of this technological system developed by IVPC are the remote villages not covered by electricity or drinking water supply, small farms, small and medium sized factories, etc. For example, a village of 40 houses not connected to the electricity distribution network can be powered by the system I.S.O.L.A. of 72 kW which will ensure availability of power equal to 1.5 kW per house with a 12 hour autonomy. Even small farms could use the electrical energy produced and stored. With an output of 45kW, the night watering for a period of 12 h can certainly be ensured, and the operation of any auxiliary systems, such as, for example, water picking or night lighting can also be ensured using the same output application and the remaining kWs. The system can also be used to power the desalination needed to make sea water drinkable and distribute it in the places not covered by the integrated water services.
The system, in its standard configuration, allows to reduce CO2 emissions in the atmosphere up to 200 tonnes a year. The accumulation system can be constituted either of lead-acid batteries or of lithium batteries, kept in watertight containers made of anticorrosive material. Both systems, just like the photovoltaic panels, imply no risk of direct pollution during their use and the technology for the end of life treatment and disposal of these items is already available and with low environmental impact.
By virtue of the know-how gained in the field of renewables, IVPC Group enters the field of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability with a wide range of activities and innovative solutions.
ESCOs – Energy Service Company –are companies carrying out actions aimed at improving energy efficiency, taking on part of the risk and relieving customers from the investment and organizational costs. The resulting cost savings are divided between the ESCOs and the customers according to the different types of contractual arrangements.
IVPC 4.0, certified ESCO in accordance with UNI CEI 11352, aims to promote and implement energy efficiency measures, distributed generation and use of renewable energy in order to reduce energy consumption and pollution in the atmosphere, thus contributing to European environmental targets. Using energy in a more rational and efficient manner means to reduce the cost of utility bills, to reduce our dependency on oil and gas supplies and to help protect the environment and to make use of a technology that uses less energy to perform the same function. Improving the energy efficiency of our homes, public buildings, industries is a smart investment that combines a rapid and significant energy saving with a considerable economic return and the regulatory compliance of plants, buildings and properties. For some years now, energy efficiency is a priority item in the agenda of national and EU policies: Legislative Decree no. 102/2014, which implements the European Directive 2012/27 / EU, establishes the obligation to increase energy efficiency through the diagnosis for large companies (> 250 employees and > 50 million in annual revenue) and energy-intensive companies (2.4 GWh of annual consumption or Energy Cost / Revenue ratio > 3%).
RECIPIENTS OF THE OFFER
Solutions for civil and industrial sectors:
We can meet all the needs and demands of the market, from the macro-solutions for highly complex and "large electricity users" industrial contexts to those customized for living, residential, commercial areas until the Energy Management. Construction of service stations for the electric charge for private vehicles and public transport purposes.
Thanks to a strategic and structured approach and thanks to our more than twenty years of experience in the renewable energy field, we are able to identify the best configuration for the facility and at the same time we respect the customer's expectations, associating the economic investment to a successful energy management.
