The development of renewables is the way forward and the structural solution to combat climate change, increase our country's energy independence and at the same time enable important benefits in terms of economy, employment and competitiveness. The European Commission, with the REPowerEU package and the proposal to increase the renewable target on final energy consumption to 2030 from 40 percent of Fit for 55 to 45 percent has given a very strong signal. The world is racing on renewables: in 2022 global renewable capacity is expected to increase further by 8 percent over 2021, i.e., another 320 new GW will be added. Photovoltaics takes the lion's share, accounting for 60 percent of the increase in global renewable capacity in 2022 with 190 new GW coming on line, a 25 percent growth over last year. It is the IEA (International Energy Agency) that tells us that solar PV and wind costs will remain higher in 2022 and 2023 than pre-pandemic levels due to high commodity and feedstock prices. Despite these factors, according to the IEA itself, renewables remain by far the most competitive option compared to other energy sources. The conference organized by Elettricità Futura will be an opportunity to delve into the opportunities that the Italian electricity sector can take from the REPowerEU Plan, which according to Elettricità Futura translates into the +85 GW renewables target by 2030 (84% renewable electricity in the electricity mix), to inform about what has been done so far and the challenges ahead to simplify authorization procedures and have a solid and widespread grid infrastructure, with the goal of accelerating renewables and freeing ourselves from Russian gas as soon as possible. Highly topical and relevant issues, which will be discussed together with industry players.
