Renewable Energy

  PROJECT DESCRIPTION Biogas and its purified version, biomethane, represent a sustainable alternative source for the production of electricity and thermal energy, as well as fuel for transportation, so they have an important role in the decarbonisation process of the European economy. Although Italy is the second largest European biogas producer, it still has great unexpressed potential for production and expansion of its market, especially in the central and southern regions. In...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The 2020 climate & energy package, launched by the European Union (EU), identifies important targets of energy efficiency and reduction of climate-changing gas emissions, pursued with a view to energy and environmental sustainability both at global and local levels. In this context, the Factor20 project had as general purpose the definition of a set of tools to support the planning of regional and national policies for the reduction of GHG emissions and...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION Industrial areas are located in extra-urban contexts where it is generally more difficult to create transport infrastructures adequate to the workers' demand of services, consequently it has an environmental impact on the territory in terms of poor air quality and increase of CO2 emissions. The I.MO.S.M.I.D. project has responded to these problems by creating an innovative model for sustainable local mobility governance, focusing in particular on commuting...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere produced by anthropogenic activities and the consequent global warming represent a real challenge that requires the enhancement of adaptation and mitigation measures at national, regional and local level. Locally the LAKS project had the general objective of demonstrating the cities’ potential in grasping opportunities and creating synergies to actively contribute to the achievement of the Kyoto Protocol goals as well as of...
