Italy May Follow Germany, Spain on Renewable Energy Policy

Pisa, Italy [AGI Online] Italy may be on the verge of moving towards a feed-in, tariff-based renewable energy rebate scheme, similar to successful models implemented in Germany and Spain, according to reporting from Italy’s AGI Online. They quote Italy’s Environment Minister Alfonso Pecorao Scanio speaking to journalists at the Tuscany Region meeting in San Rossore entitled “Energy: the problem and its solutions”, saying “The government has a program that envisages 25 percent of renewable energy sources in Italy by 2011 — now it must apply it.” Most importantly, he added, “I’ve already asked Prodi to work on this; we’ll do so as Ministry for the Environment in order to present a law that re-launches renewable sources on the German model.”
