Italcogen gives its reaction to the decree on energy-intensive companies

Alessandro Fontana - Association Manager, Italcogen

On 1 January 2018, a decree on energy-intensive companies came into force in Italy that reduces their energy costs but does not envisage improvements in their energy efficiency. In the opinion of Italcogen, this procedure provides no real incentive since it does not encourage companies to improve and to be competitive, and it also increases the burden on end-users. Instead, the association is in favor of a system to support efficiency improvements in company manufacturing processes through technologies like cogeneration.
