This episode of #FSRDebates is jointly organised by the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) and the International Energy Agency (IEA).

This debate will offer the occasion to present and discuss the recently published IEA Italy Energy Policies Review Report, which analyses the Italian energy and climate policies in response to the energy crisis and the wider climate goals. 



Italy has raised its climate ambitions by aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050, and the country is on track to reach its 2030 targets for emissions reductions and energy efficiency. The government has taken encouraging initial steps to overcome the long permitting procedures, administrative burdens and increasing local opposition that have delayed new renewable installations.   

In 2022, Italy successfully reduced its reliance on Russian natural gas imports, by signing new contracts with alternative suppliers, making use of the pipeline and LNG infrastructure that it has built up over the last decade. Reducing overall demand for natural gas through an accelerated shift to alternative energy sources and a stronger focus on energy efficiency, especially in the building sector, will not only further strengthen energy security, but also help the country meet its climate targets.
