Low impact energies are increasing

Today, wind and solar power can cover 14% of the whole electricity demand in Italy. An historical peak. That’s what emerges from the recent three-monthly analysis on the national energy system by ENEA (the IItalian agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable development, enea.it). This is an encouraging result, in particular if we consider the period we are going through all over the world, where politics are discouraging the usage of renewables instead of rewarding it. During the first nine months of 2016, non-programmable renewable sources – i.e. wind and solar ones – have increased in Italy, while primary energy consumption has decreased (less 2%) together with CO2 emissions (less 3%), if compared to the same period in 2015. The amount of electricity produced by all the renewables is around 41% (the greater segmenti s the hydro-elecrtical one). «The analysis highlights an important difference to the trend which has characterized recent years. Consumptions and emissions have lowered, despite a slight increase in GDP. A significant trend reversal, because, so far, Italy is the unique country – among major EU economies – where financial downturn has significantly contributed in reducing emissions», as explained by Francesco Gracceva, leader of the ENEA research group. «At this rate, by the end of 2017, we expect a 29% reduction in emissions compared to 2005, in line with the objectives established for 2020 and with the targets to be discussed for 2030». The ENEA analysis includes also a focus on biomethane perspectives in Italy, also considering the incentivisation decree.
