Pv generators integrated into sound barriers


The aim of the project is to encourage the use of PV grid connected systems in sound barriers along highways and train rails. This type of PV integration has the advantage of matching clean electricity generation by PV technology with the environmental benefits by urban improvement, added to an important increase of quality of life for populations living near these transport ways. Some small pilot projects have been carried out in Europe. In this project, a larger scale installation is proposed. Studies will be carried out determine the optimum configuration, mainly from power conditioning strategies point of view, in order to establish an standardisation of such PV systems. Special attention will be paid to the constructive and integration aspects, and reduction costs. Marketing strategies will be carried out, looking for a large diffusion impact.
