Panel Discussion
UPDATE FROM ITALY: HOW IS THE GOVERNMENT ACCELERATING SOLAR DEVELOPMENT?

Italy’s Gestore dei Servizi Energetici GSE SpA awarded 975 MW of renewables as part of its most recent auction and a further auction has been announced for March 2022. However, some challenges exist including tough permitting procedures causing delays and a backlog of projects trying to secure interconnection rights. There has also been a move from government to limit windfall profits secured by projects backed by FiTs from 1st February. So how will the Italian market shape up in 2022? This panel will illuminate you.
