The National Energy Strategy (NES) was approved by the Ministerial Decree on the 8th of March 2013. It directs the country efforts towards a substantial improvement of both the competitiveness of the energy system and the environmental sustainability. For Italy, the actions proposed for the national energy strategy are part of the process of decarbonisation in 2050 in accordance with the Roadmap 2050. Moreover, the European Commission has defined ‘the energy package’ which sets out the european energy policy, endorsed by the European Eunion heads of states and governments which launched the "20-20-20" by 2020. This strategy has three ambitious objectives to be achieved by 2020:  20% GHGs reduction;  20% reduction of energy consumption, meet the 20% of european energy requirements via renewable energy. Within the Paris COP 21, the reached agreement highlights the importance of renewable energy for the Planet and the consequent requirement to accelerate the energy transition towards alternative forms of energy supplies. The objectives of this Agreement is to achive the “carbon neutrality” by 2050.

  PROJECT DESCRIPTION  Some industrial processes are characterized by a significant quantity of waste heat, which, when unused, is dispersed in the environment in the form of hot gases. The H-REII project was designed on the assumption that it is possible to recover the not used energy produced by the residual heat of many industrial processes (especially those of the energy-intensive industries) obtaining at the same time a significant reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION  The H-REII DEMO project represents the prosecution of the energy requalification initiative promoted by the LIFE-H REII project. The pilot project H-REII  addressed the question of heat recovery in energy intensive industries. Its main purpose was the promotion of actions in support of innovative solutions for the recovery and energy valorization of the effluents in the energy intensive industries and the quantification of the potentially avoided CO2...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The BIOEUPARKS project, as part of the current debate on the sustainable exploitation of solid biomass for bioenergetic purposes, has proposed an innovative model for the establishment of short and sustainable supply chains within protected natural areas.These chains must harmonize the principles of Sustainable Forest Management and the activation of a virtuous development process based on the creation of bio-energy districts. To do this, the project launched a...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The ERASME project was born almost simultaneously with the European directive 2012-27-EU on energy efficiency, which, accordingly to paragraph 4 of article 8, requires Member States to organize mandatory energy audits for large companies, while paragraph 2 imposes the drawing up of programs to encourage SMEs to undergo energy audits and encourage the subsequent implementation of the recommendations resulting from these audits. The analysis of the situation in the...
