Italy: Solar Thermal Municipalities Growing in Number

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 25, 2015
Solaretermico Municipality ItalyLegambiente, one of the major environmental associations in Italy, releases a report every year on the diffusion of renewables at local level, highlighting the role of municipalities and stressing their commitment, for instance, to renewable use in public buildings (see the attached document in Italian). For nine years, this report titled Renewable Municipalities (Comuni Rinnovabili in Italian) has shown maps, rankings and best-practice examples to illustrate the deployment of the different clean technologies: The current study, published in May 2015, listed 6,803 Italian municipalities with solar thermal installations from a total number of about 8,000 in 2014. This represents a huge increase from the 108 municipalities having solar water heating installed in their community in the first survey in 2005. The map displays the cumulated solar capacity at regional level at the end of 2014, with the red areas pointing to broad solar water heater usage.

Italy: Plans to Simplify Conto Termico Administration

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 1, 2014
CMG SolariNearly two years after the start of Italian incentive programme Conto Termico, some difficulties still persist: There are currently around 7,000 applications for the programme, most of them for solar thermal systems, but this is a really small number compared to the funding available. Nevertheless, the constant pressure that the associations have put on decision-makers over almost the past two years seems to finally pay off.

Italy: Comparing Conto Termico with Tax Deductions

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 2, 2013

This summer has changed solar thermal clients’ access to incentives in Italy: Since the beginning of August 2013, customers have been able to deduct as much as 65 % of their investment costs into a solar thermal system from tax payments over the next 10 years. In addition, the Portal Termico web page has been offering individuals and companies the option to apply for the new renewable heating incentive - called Conto Termico - since mid-July.

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 21, 2013

Almost three weeks before the start of the 14th Solarexpo, the organisers have begun preparing for its joint opening with The Innovation Cloud, which will take place in the Fiera Milano Rho, Italy, from 8 to 10 May. In addition to the Solarexpo’s focus on photovoltaics and solar thermodynamics, it is the aim of The Innovation Cloud to also promote all other renewable sources of electricity and energy. At the beginning of April, the registration list showed more than 400 exhibitors representing companies and brands. More than 300 speakers will take part in conferences viewed as one of the perks of a trade fair which has long been known as a showcase for innovation and a key event for the entire solar business community. In 2012, the fair had attracted more than 50,000 visitors and over 1,000 exhibiting companies, according to its organisers.

Italy: Government Approves New Subsidy Scheme

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 27, 2012

Market observers expect the new incentive mechanism for renewable heating systems and energy-efficient measures in Italy, to come into force at the beginning of January 2013. The three Ministries of Industry, Environment and Agriculture have only reached their agreement in November 2012. And the OK from the State-Regions Conference came in the middle of December. More than a year behind schedule, the implementation decree will soon be published in the Official Gazette. The decree introduces a subsidy scheme for renewable heating technologies pursuant to Article 28 of Legislative Decree 28/11, which requires the implementation of a feed-in tariff.
