(ANSA-AFP) - ROME, DEC 25 - Italy has made progress regarding the energy transition for 2021, but the goals are still far-off. This news emerges from the 2022 of the Energy Transition Readiness Index (ETRI 2022). The study, conducted by REA (Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology) and supported by Eaton, a global leader in energy management, analyzed the energy markets of 13 major European countries, including Italy, and assessed their level of readiness concerning the adoption of renewable energy, comparing them with the decarbonization targets set for 2030. The report took into account several aspects, including market accessibility, socio-political aspects and technological potential. Finland is the only country to achieve the Index's highest ranking of 5.

With Index 4 are Denmark, France, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. Italy has Index 3, along with Germany, Ireland, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK. Over the past 12 months, the "Belpaese" has distinguished itself from the socio-political perspective, catching up with France and the Nordic countries and proving awareness and essential ambitions regarding the energy transition. In addition, there have been significant steps forward in market accessibility. The government is showing an appropriate level of attractiveness in terms of investment.

However, some uncertainty at the regulatory level that, in the long run, could prevent new players from entering the market.

The country's situation from the point of view of technological innovation (i.e., network accessibility, recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles, digital infrastructure), which still has ample room for improvement. (ANSA-AFP).
