What we have done
For the BNL-BNP Paribas bank, Studio Santi conducted a technical-economic feasibility study for the installation of photovoltaic systems with Conto Energia incentives on the roofs of the headquarters in Via Aldobrandeschi, in Rome, and on the central archive in Pratica di Mare, in Pomezia (RM), and for the installation of a cogeneration plant serving the headquarters in Via Aldobrandeschi. By carrying out accurate simulations of shading and producibility, Studio Santi advised the bank against building photovoltaic systems in Via Aldobrandeschi – contrary to what was suggested to the bank itself by noble consulting firms – and demonstrated the convenience of creating cogeneration for the headquarters in Via Aldobrandeschi and photovoltaics for the Pratica di Mare headquarters, thus optimizing investments and avoiding the waste of resources.
As a result of the feasibility studies, the bank decided to build a 1 MWp photovoltaic system on the roof of the aforementioned building in Pratica di Mare and entrusted Studio Santi with the preliminary and executive design, the direction of the works, the coordination of safety in design and execution phase and the management of technical-administrative procedures, both for urban planning and airport authorizations (for the glare towards the nearby military airport), and for the requests for incentives and connection to the electricity grid. The project was carried out on time, at the set costs and achieving all objectives. Self-supporting aerodynamic structures were used for the first time in Italy to support the photovoltaic modules on the roof.
