Critiques at new Energy Bill

New controversy over Third Energy Bill approved in July and published in the Official Gazette. The decree, as we wrote, regulates the incentives and aids in the production of electricity from photovoltaic sources for the period 2011 to 2013 and said at the same time, the Guidelines for the authorization of renewable energy plants .

The new energy account only applies to plants that entered into service after December 31, 2010 and to increase to six classes of power, but also provides a simplification to only two types: those made on buildings and those located on the so-called " other plants. "

It is also expected to increase in the maximum of the capacity eligible to 8,000 MW in the period up to 2020 and 3,000 MW in 2011-2013. To these we can add the 300 MW incentivabili for systems integrated with innovative features and an additional 200 MW for solar concentrators.

It is also extended the deadline to apply for the grant of incentives to GSE from 60 to 90 days.

The duration of the Energy Bill remains unchanged at 20 years, as well as the trade regime in place is fixed to 200 KW.

A big problem is the large number of requests received by the installation of GSE in recent times. A number - it would seem - well above the national demand and the capacity of the distribution network. Probably this is due to the fear of a cut of the incentives that, it says, has already been fixed and will be gradual for each quarter of 2011, while between 2012 and 2013 will be 6% per annum.

"The word incentive - says Guido Bortoni, head of the Department of Energy of the Ministry of Economic Development, Energy Lab at the University of Milan Bicocca - not associated with, anyway, the provision of monetary contributions to support of initiatives which aim to promote, out of the public finances or on your energy bills of consumers. It should be quite recovered the original meaning of the term that covers any scheme or mechanism to contribute to the achievement of specific objectives. "

The same opinion is also Gianni Chianetta, president of Assosolare that Virgil Go Green said: "When, finally, the cost per kWh produced by PV system will be equal to the cost produced by a plant fossil, then we will be independent of government funding. And this scenario is not so far away. According to our studies, in fact, it might be a plausible reality in a few years already. "

In the Official Journal. 199 of 26 August last year was published the Decree of the President of the Republic July 9, 2010, n, 139 "Regulation laying down simplified procedure authorization landscaping for small scale projects, in accordance with Article 146, paragraph 9, of Legislative Decree January 22, 2004, n. 42, as amended.

Streamlined procedures for interventions on the roofs of existing buildings, installation of awnings, adaptation to the seismic creation or modification of appurtenant garages, sheds, porches, kiosks, technical volumes, fences, installation of solar panels, thermal and photovoltaic systems up to 25 square meters and removal of architectural barriers. In the case of the simplified procedure for the report landscape used to be a model sheet referred to in paragraph 2 of Article 2, which sets out the legal sources or provvedimentali the landscape framework, describes the current state of the area affected by 'intervention, is the attestation of conformity of the project to the specific conditions of use of the landscape, if any, or documented compatibility with the landscape values and are indicated any measures envisaged in landscapes.

Clarifications Delib. G.R. n. 10/3 of 12/03/2010. Re-approval guidelines. " Indicate briefly the basic contents of the circular.

First mentioned in the decree are the requirements to qualify the solar greenhouse effect, which are:

1. - Status of farmer

2. - Ability adapted agricultural

It also established the competence of the Regional Agriculture Administration proceeding by which the release of the single and are indicated times and procedures to validate or recover past practices already forwarded to other administrations.
