Aspen Institute Italia and CESI are organizing the Aspenia Talk "Italy between energy security and ecological transition," a meeting to discuss the country's energy situation. The event to be held next Feb. 15 from 6-7 p.m. It can be followed remotely and physically at Palazzo Lancellotti Piazza Navona 114.
The meeting will be attended by Gilberto Pichetto Fratin, Italian Minister of Environment and Energy Security; Giulio Tremonti, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Chamber of Deputies, President Aspen Institute Italia; Guido Bortoni Chairman of CESI SpA; Marta Dassù, Director Aspenia. Also remotely connected will be Aurelio Regina, President of Gruppo Tecnico Energia, Confindustria; Davide Tabarelli President Nomisma and Laura Cozzi, Chief Energy Modeller International Energy Agency.
The meeting will discuss Italy's dependence on natural gas combustion and how the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) can accelerate the decarbonization transition and the Country energy independency. This goal can be achieved by improving resources and technologies diversification and increasing the share of renewables in the national energy mix. In this regard, it will be necessary to simplify the bureaucratic and authorization processes that currently discourage investment. A necessary acceleration also dictated by the European Green Deal or-with the July 2021 "Fit for 55" climate package-that marked an economic paradigm shift and a virtuous vision of the future.
