Country: France

6.84 and 100 kWp - PV Installations

Within the UNIVERSOL project, the Municipality of Chambéry installed 2 PV system:
- a 6.6kWp PV roof integrated PV system on the "House of Energies", and
- a 100kWp PV system on a flat roof.

Although the power of the system of the "House of Energies" is rather small, this PV system is a BIPV case study for France as it is composed of semi-transparent PV shading elements. This building is under the ownership of the city of Chambéry but hosts the locally implanted but nationally recognised association for the promotion of renewable energies ASDER, which is known for its training course on demand side management, energy efficiency, renewable energies and waste management.

The second system is much more larger as it is at the time of writing the largest PV system in operation in France. This PV system is particularly interesting as it is larger than 36kW, which is the power limit to benefit from the simplified procedure for grid connection and thus needed to follow a much more complicated procedure for the connection to the grid.
