2014-02-17 09:56:02 - Analyzing the Power Market in Italy - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Italy is a developed country which has transformed from an agricultural economy to a well-developed industrial state in recent decades. With limited domestic energy sources, and no nuclear plants, Italy is highly dependent on energy imports. Italy has proven crude oil reserves of 0.7 billion barrels, however, the domestic production of approximately 100 000 barrels per day meets only a limited amount of domestic consumption. In the last decade, the declining production from Italy´s natural gas fields and the increase in domestic consumption has increased the country´s reliance upon gas imports which arrive mainly by pipelines.
Natural gas, renewable sources and solid fuels are gradually replacing oil in electricity generation. Final energy consumption has been increasing, while industry remains the most
energy-consuming sector. Oil and natural gas dominate the primary energy supply of Italy which exhibits a low level of fuel diversity.
The energy balance of Italy depends highly on energy imports. The Russian Federation, Libya and Middle East countries are the sources of oil for Italy, which represents almost half of imported energy. Over the past several years, Italy´s energy policy has focused on the promotion of renewable sources of electricity in order to increase the share of renewable energy in its total power mix.
Enel S.p.A, Edison S.p.A, E.ON Italia and A2A are the leading players in the market.
