Italy is the world’s leading country in terms of photovoltaic share in the power generation mix, and ranks second among European big players as to energy efficiency, these are just two out of Italy’s several achievements in the energy sector Realacci and Starace: “We talk about 100 ways of making energy in Italy: this is Italy on the move, an example of good industrial practice and innovation, thanks to people who had an idea and turned it into reality”
Rome, November 24th , 2015 – The climate challenge, which will see the world come together in Paris at the COP21 from 30 November to December 11th , 2015, is not only about the environment, but is also a geopolitical, technological, economic and social challenge. A challenge for the future which we can win provided we make a firm commitment to the green economy, energy efficiency and clean energy. In the study “100 Italian Energy Stories” presented today by Enel’s CEO and General Manager, Francesco Starace, and the Chairman of Symbola, Ermete Realacci, Enel and Symbola tell us about a new direction focused on innovation and quality, research and competitiveness This report focuses on the Italian power sector, which gathers together top success stories ranging from generation to distribution, from equipment maintenance to household energy efficiency. Businesses, research bodies and associations in Italy have been taking this path towards sustainable energy.
Today, Italy is the global leader in terms of photovoltaic contribution to the national power generation mix (7.9%), ahead not only of Greece (7.6%) and Germany (7%), but also of Japan (under 3%) and the USA and China (less than 1%). Italy also shares the top place with Spain among the large EU countries as to the share of renewables in power generation. Italy also ranks second among Europe’s big players in terms of energy consumption efficiency in the national economy. Italy consumes 15 tonnes of oil equivalent per million euro, while the UK consumes 12 toe (but has less manufacturing), France 16 toe, and Spain and Germany 18 toe.
“Innovation and sustainability, the development of renewables and of technologies linked to smart grids and energy efficiency play a key role in Enel’s business” – says Francesco Starace, Enel’s CEO and General Manager. “The Group is committed to playing an active role in the decarbonisation effort through its industrial activities and has set itself the goal of achieving carbon neutrality before 2050. It is our hope that the COP21 in Paris will deliver a global climate agreement able to send a strong signal in this direction”.
