The Renewables Decree: Introduction of a New System of Incentives for Renewable Energy Plants


On 29 March 2011, the so-called Renewables Decree entered into force. It substantially revises the system of incentives for the production of electricity from renewable sources in Italy and provides for modifications to the procedures for the authorisation of renewable plants. The Renewables Decree, which aims at creating a long-lasting stable framework for the support of renewable energy plants, has as its short-term effect the suspension of the currently applicable feed-in tariffs for solar PV plants and the reduction of the price offered by the GSE for the purchase of green certificates.

On 3 March 2011, the Italian Council of Ministers approved a Legislative Decree for the implementation of EC Directive 2009/28 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (Renewables Decree). The Renewables Decree entered into force on 29 March 2011, the day after its publication in the Official Gazette.
