Italy: Market Decline Continues Despite Appealing Incentives

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 1, 2017
Italy InstallationItaly’s solar thermal market experienced another 10 % drop in 2016 despite the availability of at least two appealing incentive schemes: a 65 % tax reduction for small systems and Conto Termico 2.0, a revised national support scheme in place since the beginning of 2016 to support plants of up to 2,500 m². To find out more about the primary reasons for the continuing decline of the national market, solarthermalworld.org spoke with Federico Musazzi, Secretary General of Assotermica, the Italian Association of Manufacturers of Equipment and Components for Heating Systems, and official at the umbrella organisation ANIMA, the Federation of Italian Associations in the Mechanical and Engineering Industries.

Italy: Gradual Integration of Assolterm into Assotermica over Next 2-3 Years

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 2, 2013

An agreement between Assolterm and Assotermica – and the latter’s umbrella organisation A.N.I.M.A. was signed at the beginning of June in order to create a unique and well-known association over the next years which can suitably represent the solar thermal industry in Italy. The agreement includes a three-phase process during a period of 2 to 3 years, in which the two associations will gradually intensify their cooperation until Assolterm will be fully incorporated into Assotermica. The group Assolterm, which will be created within Assotermica, is intended to address the key issues, both political and technical, for promoting and developing solar thermal in Italy. The aim is to gradually convince all companies which manufacture solar thermal systems to be part of this group and, consequently, to enter into the great realm of Confindustria (Confederation of Italian Industries). Still, the two associations will maintain their separate offices and operational facilities in Milan and Rome, as an important asset to come back to in the future.
