Italy unveils bold energy plan for 2020
To Enerdata : ” The Italian government has published its new energy plann. It aims to reduce the gap in energy costs, promote sustainable growth, improve security and independence of supply, meet and exceed the EU target 2020.“
” Greenhouse gas emissions should be reduced by 19% by 2020 compared to 1990, while renewables should account for 24% of primary energy consumption. This aims to reduce Italy’s energy dependency ratio from 82% to 65%”
This would enable the country to decrease its energy imports by 15 billion euros (around $19 billion) per year . Let’s hope this will create green jobs as the country is facing hard economic times.
