In 2023, only 3,122 GW of renewable energy will be installed
(Rinnovabili.it) – The incentive mechanisms introduced in 2019 no longer guarantee risk with tariffs “adequate to the sustainability of investments”. the reason? The changes brought by the government with it Decree Law on Energy Safety (Decree Law No. 181/2023), has been in the newspaper since December 9, and with the latest budget law, it was approved last Thursday in the Senate and final approval in the Council is expected tomorrow. Turn on the alarm Renewable incentives Comes from Annie Renovabili.
Two trips to renewable incentives
In the latest bulletin of its FER Observatory, the National Agency for Education focused above all on the issuance of Legislative Decree 181/2023: Contribution of €10/kW That all newly built renewable energy plants other than geothermal and hydropower with a capacity of more than 20 kW will have to pay to the GSE in the first three years of commissioning. The contribution that should feed a Environmental and Territorial Compensation and Rebalancing Fund With the aim of encouraging autonomous regions and provinces to host renewable energy plants. In Annie's readingmeasure instead “It will affect all sectors of the sector, all systems whether catalytic or not, all systems from residential, tertiary and industrial systems (in self-consumption, in energy communities, on-site exchange, etc.) to utility-level systems.”.
The second journey to renewable incentives is hidden in the folds Budget Law 2024. One of the provisions stipulates the imposition of taxes on surface rights, paid by the owners of the surfaces on which renewable energy plants are located. In this way, warns Ani Renovabili, “As revenues from the surface rights contract on which producers build plants decline, they will demand greater economic recognition.”.
The combined provisions of the two measures will be as follows: Weakening the benefit of renewable incentivesThis makes investments less appropriate and, ultimately, slows the race towards the 2030 goals even further. It is a race that, according to the National Energy Agency, in 2023 has not reached the pace necessary to respect the goals contained in New PNIEC. Although the 2022 establishments are equivalent in the first nine months of 2023, the numbers “Insufficient to achieve 2030 goals”
In total, in 2023, the total installed capacity will be 3,122 MW (2804 MW photovoltaic, 305 MW wind energy and 13 MW hydropower). Newly connected power in 2023 is up 57% compared to the first nine months of 2022. “The rate of new installations in 2023 will not reach the crucial threshold of 10 gigawatts, and this will make achieving the goals to be achieved in the next seven years more difficult.”concludes Ani Renovabili.
