  1. Energy efficiency in the Italian Financial Act 2007 Provisions edited by laura modestino for the Italian Ministry of European Policies Sofia, March 6 2007 The present slides are exscusively meant to support the Author’s speech

  2. introduction This paper presents the most recent measures taken by the Italian Government in the energy sector. They are specifically meant to support end-use efficiency and energy service Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  3. Energy saving – consumers’ bill and environment • Tax relief for energetic improvements of buildings • Fund for boosting buildings at top ranking efficiency • Contributions for refrigerators at high ranking efficiency • Incentives for the installation of industrial engines at high efficiency and variable speed • Administrative simplification for small self-producers of electric energy • Tax relief for shopkeepers who chose either fluorescent lamps or vapour of sodium ones • Reduction of tax on LPG and incentives for the use of gas cars • Incentives for bio-fuels • Interventions on energetic taxation pro social goals • TVA relief for ecological energy supply Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  4. Tax relief for energetic improvements of buildings 1/2 PROVISION Tax allowance increase of the percent - from 36% to 55% - for those interventions: • Meant to reduce energy consumption for thermal comfort in new buildings at least 20% less than current values as allowed for the new buildings ( up to 100.000 € in 3 years) • Specifically done on walls and windows such as insulation (up to 60.000 € in 3 years) Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  5. Tax relief for energetic improvements of buildings 2/2 EFFECTS • 30-40% reduction of thermal loss and consequential energy saving ranging between 50-100 kilo tep/a (thousends of tons oil equivalent). • Interventions to install solar panels (up to 60.000 € in 3 years). • Substitution of old heaters with new at high energy efficiency ones (up to 30.000 € in 3 years). Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  6. Fund for boosting buildingsat top ranking efficiency 1/2 PROVISION • The creation of a special Fund which will provide a financial contribution for the construction of new medium-large buildings (larger than 10.000 m3) which can have a better energy performance, that is 50% less than what law in force allows. This contribution amounts at 55% of extra-costs borne for such new constructions. • The whole fund amounts at 45 million €, and this shouldhelp the pilot construction of 15-20 buildings at high energy performance, to be repeated in the national territory.

  7. Fund for boosting buildingsat top ranking efficiency 2/2 EFFECTS • Reduction of consumers’ energy bill (mostly families) • Containment of the Country energy expense • Industrial as well as employment impacts linked to the construction/installation of solar panels • Development of qualified activities related to the field of bio-building (designers, artisans, installation firms, auditors, …) Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  8. Contributions for refrigerators at high ranking efficiency 1/2 PROVISION A tax allowance in a single instalment for the substitution of refrigerators, freezers and combined with at least class A+ appliances bought in 2007. This allowance is 20% of what paid by the consumer and in any case its total amount cannot exceed 200 € Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  9. Contributions for refrigerators at high ranking efficiency 2/2 EFFECTS • Reduction in consumption:assuming that class A+ refrigerators achieve 15% of the whole sale, the reduction would be 85 GWh/a (millions kWh). • Reduction in consumers’ bill. • Industries would be encouraged in their research ans well as in producing devices at high energetic performance.

  10. Incentives for the installation of industrial engines at high efficiency and variable speed 1/2 PROVISION • A tax allowance of 20% (in a single instalment) of the amount paid by a consumer. In any case the tax allowance cannot exceed 200 € for the purchase or substitution of engines at low-medim power (even those ones integrated in devices) with engines at high performance electricity ranged between 5 - 90 Kw – for a total amount of 1.500 € per engine (inclusive of installation); whereas the purchase/installation regards inverter on a plant ranged between 7,5 – 90 KW, the tax allowance cannot exceed 1500 € Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  11. Incentives for the installation of industrial engines at high efficiency and variable speed 2/2 EFFECTS • Reduction of electric energy consumption service being equal • More competitive enterprises • Energy saving up to 30% for speed converters to electric engines • A potential reduction equal to 15 TWh/y, that is 10% of industry electric consumption Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  12. Administrative simplification for small self-producers of electric energy1/2 PROVISION • The mechanism of “in place exchange” is extended to plants up to 200 kW, powered by renewable sources as well as co-generative ones. Such mechamism was in force only for very small plants, powered by renewable sources up to 20 kW. • Simplification of fiscal procedures, abolition of some heavy administrative taxes, for an amount equal to 1 million € per year. Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  13. Administrative simplification for small self-producers of electric energy 2/2 EFFECTS • Improvement in the distribution of clean efficient small generation. • Spreading of a “rational energy use” culture Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies

  14. Tax relief for shopkeepers who chose either fluorescent lamps or vapour of sodium ones 1/1 PROVISION • 36% tax relief for shopkeepers who change their shops’ lighting with more efficient systems Source: The Presidency of Italian Government Twinning Bulgaria Laura Modestino 2007 for the Italian Ministry for EU Policies
