Enea has prepared a guide for the qualification of installers of renewable energy systems

Enea has produced a guide called QualiCert for certification and qualification of installers of small-scale renewable sources. The goal is to direct the promotion, training of certified installers for the production of renewable energy, photovoltaic, solar thermal, biomass, and geothermal heat pumps.

Enea has prepared one for the certification and qualification of installers of small-scale renewable sources.

Thanks to the recent adoption of the Climate and Energy Package, the European Union has set itself ambitious goals, such as the famous goal 20-20 - 20 to be achieved by 2020.

Polluters will pay more tolls saltiest

The association of trucking companies takes it badly and Aci prices rise on the roads unsafe and Autoturismo in Italy

Approved by the European Ministers of Transport of the measure amending Council Directive on the internalisation of external costs (Eurovignette) under which the road tolls paid by heavy vehicles now include the costs of air and noise caused by them, as well as those already planned infrastructure. A principle that the Association of Confindustria, the Italian business of motor transport (Anita) is unfair, "polluter pays" according to representatives of heavy transport is not used with fairness, but only in order to penalize a type of road, compared other.

Integration of renewable energy sources in transport infrastructure

If you own one can not do without, better minimize their impact on the environment. Bridges and highways have always been among the most criticized infrastructure from those who care about the issues of sustainability, so that new projects often come up against the opposition of local communities. However, the scenario is likely to change if the projects to produce clean energy from the arteries of traffic will be able to develop on a large scale.

Comprehensive overview of the production of electricity in Italy: system charges, costs, dependencies

According to data reported to January 2007, the Italian electricity for domestic use is the average cost, net of taxation, higher than any of the European Union (€ 165.8 / MWh), the cost is around the European average stands to 117-120 € / MWh with a minimum in Bulgaria amounted to 54.7. Including taxation, Italy passes - again on average - in second place, behind only Denmark and followed by the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden.

The real cost to the final consumers of electricity is however a value that can not be quantified in a single number: in fact, it depends strongly on the annual consumption by contract, for example, for consumption of up to 1800 KWh Italy is one of the cheapest countries , while the highest rates are found for consumption above 3540 kWh, in order to discourage high consumption.

Comprehensive overview of the production of electricity in Italy: primary energy sources used

Percentage changes of non-renewable energy sources in Italy. Processing from data published by Terna

The Italian non-renewable production is made exclusively from the production of energy through the combustion of fossil fuels in power plants (less than production of less significant amount of energy through the combustion of biomass). This rate is 77.4% of the total national production, 70.7% of electricity demand and to 67.1% of the national gross].

Comprehensive overview of the production of electricity in Italy: installed capacity, demand and consumption

In Italy the production of electricity occurs largely through the use of non-renewable resources (such as coal, oil and natural gas) and to a lesser extent from renewable sources (such as the exploitation of geothermal energy, energy hydroelectric and wind power), and the remaining amount is covered by the purchase of energy from abroad, carried into the country through the use of power lines.

The new research programs on renewable energy invest the sea and sun

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) launches two new European programs for the development of technologies for the production of energy from renewable sources of new generation in the areas of Concentrating Solar Power and Energy in the exploitation Marina, investing in the green economy, as the driving force of a new global socio-economic development, at a time when we are witnessing the worsening of the energy issue on several fronts.

Rare Earths: more and more strategic for the energy sector

The increasing electrification of the car has shifted the focus on the geopolitics of the sources of supply of materials related to the development of new automotive technologies. From the well-known scenario, due to oil is now being extended to examine one related to the "Rare Earth" that is, those chemical elements that are grouped in the Periodic Table, under this name.

We are talking about for example the "Neodymium" and "Dysprosium" used in the Nissan Leaf, GM Volt mella, in 'hybrid Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, as well as in mobile phones and rechargeable batteries.

Renewable Energy Agency will be based in the UAE

The International Agency for Renewable Energy, IRENA, born in Germany in January, will be based in the UAE's capital, Abu Dhabi, by 2011. This is the choice of the first summit of the Preparatory Committee which was held in Sharm el-Sheikh and attended by 114 founding members, led by Egyptian Prime Minister of Energy Hassan Younes. They have joined 22 other states including Japan and the United States.

During the same meeting, it was also elected the first interim Director General of the Agency, Hélène Pelosse, currently Deputy Chief of Staff in the Private Office of the French Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Urban Planning.
