Highlights

  • Italy aims to reach a share of 40% of renewables in final consumption in 2030.
  • Enel, Eni, A2A, and Edison account for 40% of power generation and over 50% of the electricity retail market (2022).
  • Eni still dominates gas supply (2/3 of production and 42% of imports in 2022).
  • The share of renewables in the power mix has increased by 10 points since 2010, reaching 37% in 2022, of which 10% is from solar.
  • Italy imports 16% of its electricity consumption and more than 90% of its oil and gas consumption.
  • Since September 2021, significant measures have been introduced to cushion soaring prices on end-consumer bills.
  • Energy consumption declined by 3.3% in 2022 and now stands 23% below its peak level of 2005.
  • The country aims to become a European energy hub through new gas pipelines, power interconnexions, and H2 interconnection projects.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security (MASE), through Its Department for Energy (DiE), oversees the energy sector. The Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning and Sustainable Development (CIPESS) is in charge of national economic and budgetary decisions regarding the energy sector, among others.

  • Energy Companies

    Oil:

    Eni (32.4% state-owned) is the national oil and gas utility. No single shareholder can hold more than 3% of the capital, and any grouping of shareholders is subject to the prior approval of the Treasury.

  • Energy Supply

    Oil:

    After a 25% increase in 2020, crude oil and NGL production has been decreasing again (-10% in 2021 and -13% in 2022 to 4.6 Mt).

    Crude oil imports rose by 9% in 2022 to nearly 65 Mt (86% of oil consumption). Four suppliers accounted for 61% of crude oil supply in 2022, namely Russia (19%), Libya, and Azerbaijan (14% each), and Iraq (13%).

  • Energy Prices

    Gas:

    Since 2021, end-consumer gas prices rose due to surging gas costs on wholesale markets; they rose by 34% for industry and by 13% for households in 2021 and surged in 2022 (+153% and +34%, respectively). They had remained broadly stable between 2016 and 2020.

  • Energy Consumption

    Italy's per capita energy consumption is 16% lower than the EU average (2.5 toe in 2022). Electricity consumption per capita is around 5 100 kWh (5060 kWh in 2022), i.e. 9% below the EU average.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Gas:

    According to the latest forecast by Snam Rete Gas, gas consumption is expected to increase by 2%/year between 2021 and 2030 and to slow down until 2040 (-0.1%/year between 2030 and 2040).

    In 2022, Italy announced plans to raise its gas production to 6 bcm/year (from 3.3 bcm in 2021).
