Sustainable design, also referred to as ecodesign, is a model that is part of the circular economy and involves the design and creation of products and projects that do not go to have a negative impact on the environment and, indeed, minimize the impact they have on it.


The project of photovoltaic shelters for street furniture, but also for the creation of private spaces, is born. In consideration of the principles on which the concept of ecodesign is based:

- Use of sustainable materials

- Focus on energy saving – reduction of consumption of production processes

- Quality and durability - the generated product must last a long time and be of high quality to reduce the production of waste

- Guarantee a second life to the product - it is important that the product has a design that allows it to be used also in a second life

- Minimal use of different materials - each product must be made of similar materials to simplify the disassembly and recycling process


The photovoltaic shelters will not be used only in the field of urban furniture, but the idea is to introduce the project also in private spaces.

Thanks to the Relaunch Decree, approved in July 2020, the photovoltaic pergola can take advantage of the Superbonus 110%, a discount that raises the tax rate to 110%. deduction of expenses incurred for interventions carried out in the field of energy efficiency, anti-seismic interventions, installation of photovoltaic systems or infrastructure for recharging electric vehicles in buildings.

All that is required by law is that the photovoltaic pergola be built together with other interventions, defined as driving forces, such as for example: thermal insulation and insulation and the improvement of heating systems.

For energy efficiency measures, the building must register progress of two energy classes, to be demonstrated, however, through APE energy certification.
