Draft rules for Italian renewables panned
Italian government proposals to revise national energy market rules and transpose the EU's 2001 directive on renewable energy are both "unclear and contradictory" and will not support the renewables sector, according to the Italian association of renewable energy producers (Aper). In a statement this week, Aper objected to plans in the draft energy law to allow energy recovery from municipal waste, animal carcasses and combined heat and power to receive the same support as wind and solar energy. The reform has still to be voted in parliament, following several delays (EED 22/11/02). See Aper.
