Abstract

This paper aims to give a footprint of the development potential of energy technologies in Italy providing a synthetic and general view to support policy makers in energy planning. The approach focuses on the impact on climate, the potential in terms of R&D, the competitiveness of Italian companies and their diffusion on the territory. A reference Catalogue was realised in the framework of the ‘Technical Board on Decarbonisation of the Economy’, established by the Italian Presid-ency of the Council of Ministers. 36 datasheets, containing quantitative and qualitative information on Technology Readiness Level (TRL), efficiency, environmental and economic impacts and policy aspects were filled by 70 experts for each technology. Some data were extracted from the Catalogue – TRL, CO2 emissions, developers, and centres of excellence – and further analysed and integrated with other information relating to the Italian production and innovation system collected from the National Enterprise Registry (ASIA). Companies and research centres are involved in development of technologies based on Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Energy Storage (ES) with different levels of TRL and high potential for mitigating effects on climate. However, their distribution shows a rather inhomogeneous presence at territorial level.
