Cogeneration in Italy: excellent prospects for the residential sector

Giovanni Puglisi - Energy Efficiency Technical Unit, ENEA

According to research performed by ENEA, the Italian agency for energy and sustainable development, the potential in Italy for the development of cogeneration is very high in the tertiary and residential sectors, especially if it is carried out alongside district heating and cooling. It is already a consolidated reality in the industrial sector, but a significant development is expected in the near future in the food and textile industries. With regard to market penetration, industrial cogeneration will dominate in terms of power installed and produced, whilst there are excellent prospects in terms of the number of units installed in the residential sector.
