The association Anie Renewable shows optimism about near-term future of the Italian PV industry. In a statement, the association has made a brief assessment of the development of photovoltaic installations in Italy in 2015 and, despite having recorded a drop in installation of 50 percent in the first ten months of this year compared to the same period of 2014, he said to see some signs of recovery. In particular, Anie Renewable stressed that in the second quarter of this year there has been an increase of 10 percent of the installations compared with the previous quarter. The association points out that the three regions with the largest installed capacity in the first ten months of this year are Piedmont, Lombardy and Veneto each with more than 30 MW of installed capacity totaling 100 megawatts. It should be remembered, however, that the National Energy Strategy adopted by the Monti government in March of 2013 he predicted that PV grow even under the “grid parity” and no incentives for an annual volume of between 1 and 2 gigawatts. The appeal would fail, therefore, in the most pessimistic growth scenario, more than 1.37 gigawatts of photovoltaic power that should have been installed in the past two years, while they have been installed only 629 megawatts.
