Renewable Energies

Aran World is more and more committed to respect and to preserve the environment with the project of covering most of its production area with photovoltaic panels that produce green energy, with the purpose to be all-sufficient form the energy point of view. We realized four production plants of electric energy from photovoltaic conversion for a total maximum output power of 2,17 MW. Such plants allow the production of around 2500 MWh per year of electric energy. Moreover, the plants allow aproximately the saving of 390 TOE (tonnes of oil equivalent) of fossil fuel and, so, to avoid, each year, the release of around 1033 tonnes of carbon dioxide in the environment, 1400 Kg of sulphur dioxide, 1100 Kg of NOX (Nitrogen oxide), 50 Kg of atmospheric particulate matters (PM10). The captation plants have been realized on the factory roofs, architecturally integrated with them and with a very low visual impact; the chosen components are among the most reliable and efficient that we can find on the market, to guarantee a high conversion output value.
The photovoltaic conversion consists in the direct transformation of solar energy (radiant energy) in electric energy through devices in a solid state (photovoltaic cells) based upon semiconductor materials (photovoltaic effect). The electric energy produced with photovoltaic technologies, therefore, can with full rights be numbered among the energies produced by renewable sources which, compared to energies produced by conventional sources (generally fossil fuels considered as “non-renewable”), are bearer of several benefits of social and environmental character, as their use permit:

  • Fossil sources conservation (“exhaustible” by definition);
  • Non-greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere (principally carbon dioxide – CO2), responsible for the destruction of the ozone layer, located at the limits of Earth’s atmosphere, that defends us from the “bombing” of high energy particles (so-called ultraviolet rays), due to combustion of fossil fuels needed to produce the thermal energy in the power plants;
  • Efficience increase of Production and distribution of Electric Energy Global System, as the net yield of energy conversion of a photovoltaic power system is higher than the net yield of chemistry energy conversion of the fossil source in electric energy (it means that the photovoltaic system is more efficient to produce one KWh of electric energy and, therefore, does less environmental damage); moreover, the photovoltaic power plant allows the implementation of distributed energy production systems, with subsequent discharge of the energy transmission lines, generating less investment in the community for the creation of networks.
