Italy: The run for the sun
The production of energy from photovoltaic sources in Italy has been incentivised through the so-called "Energy Bill" scheme. This scheme provides for the application of tariffs for legally established amounts at an uneven level, and depends on the quantity of energy produced by the benefiting entity. The fixed tariff system was reformed by the Ministerial Decree of February 19, 2007, which has removed numerous limitations and hindrances to the application of the incentives provided for by previously passed regulations.
New incentives to encourage the production of clean energy in Italy have led to a rush to register and build new plants. But while investors are ready, the legislation has yet to catch up. Federico Manili reports
