Italy Power Market Size and Trends by Installed Capacity, Generation, Transmission, Distribution, and Technology, Regulations, Key Players and Forecast, 2022-2035

The cumulative installed capacity in the Italy power market was 116.7 GW in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% during the forecast period. Italy generates most of its electricity from thermal power. The most important aspect of the energy strategy of the country is the phase-out of coal-based capacity by 2025. Alternatively, the country’s Ministry of Economic Development has set a target to achieve a 30% renewable share in gross final consumption by 2030.

The Italy power market report discusses the power market structure of Italy and provides historical and forecast numbers for capacity, generation, and consumption up to 2035. The report also gives a snapshot of the power sector in the country on broad parameters of macroeconomics, supply security, generation infrastructure, transmission and distribution infrastructure, electricity import and export scenario, degree of competition, regulatory scenario, and future potential.

What are the market dynamics in the Italy power market?

The government of Italy is now replacing thermal power plants with renewable sources due to rising energy demand and concerns over energy security. Wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) are the two technologies that have made tremendous progress in the country. In the future, renewables are expected to play a major role in meeting the country’s power demand, whereas few conventional plants will be present to take the baseload and manage the fluctuations in renewable energy. Thus, the coal power plant phase-out will put Italy’s energy security on high with increasing generation from renewable sources. The country is suggested to focus more on energy storage systems, offshore wind, biopower, and modernization of grids to secure the energy security to the maximum. In the wake of the Ukraine crisis, State-controlled Terna revealed plans of expenditure over the next four years to upgrade the country’s power grid, to meet energy security and climate change demands.

Italy is not known to possess substantial domestic fossil fuel reserves and is heavily dependent on imports. Italy is the major importer of gas after Germany in the European region and imports gas from Southern Europe and Russia via pipeline across Ukraine. The recent Ukraine crisis has further dented Italy’s supply security. The country has sought to build a partnership with Qatar to import gas to avoid a major power crisis. This may provide a short-term solution, but the government is looking to expand renewable capacity to avoid dependence on other nations.

With increasing concerns over the need to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and protect the environment, renewable sources are expected to witness the highest growth among power-generating resources in the country. There is a strong institutional framework for the development of the renewable energy sector in the country. The country has also introduced an energy audit every four years to reduce energy consumption and made it an obligation for all types of industries including SMEs.
