Pilot investment of the Municipality of Udine, Italy End: 12/2014

The intervention financed by CEC 5 Project will be the installation of a Photovoltaic glass on building n° 8 of the complex, where the educational spaces for children are foreseen.

In December the public procurement started and it ended in April 2013 with the selection of the contractorThe intervention will be made on the old municipal slaughterhouse.

The outer facades and the main walls will be unchanged: the interventions will be done inside. The main outside intervention is the realization of a photovoltaic generator system made of photovoltaic laminated safety glass installed roof and an appropriate metal frame. The system is built from a single glass hardened and treated HST. The stratigraphy includes the use of a package defined as: glass, PVB, photovoltaic cells, PVB and glass. In order to achieve even better thermal insulation glass with insulating properties like triple glazed insulating photovoltaic glass units will be used. The benchmarks for the design are: extra-clear glass top 4 to 6 mm; extra-clear or float back 4 to 15 mm; photovoltaic cells to 5-inch monocrystalline silicon a minimum output of 145 Wp/sqm; according to UNI 7697, IEC 61215, 61730, UNI EN ISO 12543
1-6, UNI EN 12600, UNI EN 356.

At the ground floor it will set up a permanent exhibition with panels and other devices to explain in detail the main features of the FV plant and how it works. The design foresees the following actions for energy efficiency and saving:


- installation of a general energy management system for the whole building;


- improvement of wall insulation;


- use of low temperature heating systems;


- installation of an innovation photovoltaic plant;


- use of energy saving lights;


 - use of water saving measures.



The city will benefit from the investment and the intervention, because a completely dismissed area and buildings will be recovered and reconfigured to create cultural activity zones, utilising passive technologies to create tempered environments between refurbished existing structures.
