Incentives for non-photovoltaic renewables: 5.8 billion euros of incentives per year for thermodynamic solar, wind, geothermal, former sugar refineries and biomass plants.
The definitive decree was signed that dictates the rules of theincentives for non-photovoltaic renewables.
With the new decree, the incentives for non-photovoltaic renewable sourcesaiming at energy efficiency through the economic bonuses provided for by theNational energy strategyand fromguidelineson incentives from the state for energy and the environment.
What non-photovoltaic renewable energies can be incentivized?
- Wind energy at sea or on land
- Solar thermodynamic
- Wave energy
- Geothermal energy
- Energy from biomass / biogas
- Hydroelectric energy
- Conversion of former sugar refineries into biomass / biogas plants
All the non-photovoltaic renewable energies just listed can access the incentives even if not all plants on site are suitable. It is not long in coming a cut in the quotas that it leaves out of the incentives all offshore wind farms with a power greater than 5,000 kW, wave motion plants with a power greater than 5,000 kW and various biomass and biogas plants.
The incentives cut out low-enthalpy geothermal energy and propose a cut of up to 40% for mini-wind.
How much are the incentives for non-photovoltaic renewables?
The annual maximum ceiling of 5.8 billion euros remains unchanged: upon reaching this threshold, the new decree on incentives for non-photovoltaic renewable sources will cease to exist. Even if the cap is not reached, the rules on incentives for non-photovoltaic renewable sources will remain in force until 31 December 2016.
How do you access the incentives for non-photovoltaic renewable sources?
Access to economic aid will take place through auctions and registers. As regards the auctions, the power quotas will be divided as follows:
- 800 MW for onshore wind energy
- 30 MW for offshore wind energy
- 20 MW for geothermal plants
- 110 MW for thermodynamic solar
Bids of less than 2 percent of the auction base and those greater than 40% will be excluded from the auction request procedure.
The registers see power quotas divided as follows by non-photovoltaic renewable source:
- 60 MW for onshore wind
- 80 MW for hydroelectric energy
- 30 MW for geothermal energy
- 90 MW for biomass plants
- 6 MW for wave motion systems
- 10 MW for thermodynamic solar
- 120.5 MW for the former sugar refineries
The division of the quotas has caused much discussion, raising a strong doubt: why the government aid goes so far (120.5 MW) when it comes to the conversion of former sugar factories into biomass plants, penalizing sources of renewable energy more innovative such as offshore wind, wave energy and low enthalpy geothermal energy? Yet the most innovative investors pointed in this direction, just think of the small wave energy plant installed in Pantelleria just this summer. The last word belongs to theUnified Conferencewhich could comment at the meeting on 7 October.

The possibility of accessing installation and commissioning permits for small photovoltaic systems in the home has been streamlined. To be able to install a photovoltaic roof, today, the so-called single model is enough. For further information:
