National Energy Action Plan of Italy

The development of renewable energy sources has been one of the priorities of Italy’s energy policy for some time, together with the promotion of energy efficiency. The objectives of such a policy are: energy supply security, reduction in energy costs for businesses and individual citizens, promotion of innovative technology, environmental protection (reduction in polluting and greenhouse gas emissions), and therefore, ultimately, sustainable development.

Italy 2020 renewable energy targets:

  • Overall target: 17% of share of energy generated from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption;
  • Heating and cooling: 17% of heat consumption met by renewable sources;
  • Electricity: 26% of electricity demand met by electricity generated from renewable energy sources;
  • Transport: 10% of energy demand met by renewable energy sources.
