  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) coordinates the energy policy through the General Directorate for Mineral and Energy Resources (DGERM). The Interministerial Committee for Economic Planning (CIPE) is in charge of national economic and budgetary decisions regarding the energy sector, among others. The ministries of the Environment, Budget, Labour, Research and Transport are also ...

  • Energy Companies


    Eni is the largest gas company. In 2017, the group's worldwide gas sales reached 81 bcm (86 bcm in 2016), 37 bcm of which in Italy (38 bcm in 2016), 38 bcm in the rest of Europe (42 bcm in 2015) and 5.2 bcm on extra-European markets (5.4 bcm in 2016). Eni is active in Spain through Union Fenosa Gas (50% Eni) and in Belgium (Distrigaz).

  • Energy Supply


    Italy is relatively poor in energy reserves: it has limited oil reserves (73 Mt in 2017) and gas reserves, which are falling rapidly (from 199 bcm in 2000 to 45 bcm in 2017). The country also has hydroelectricity (50 TWh) and geothermal resources.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices are higher than the European average (by 13% for domestic consumers and by 50% for industry in 2017), due to taxes (36% of taxes in residential electricity prices and 42% in industry in 2016). Industrial prices are only 29% below residential prices (€16.1c/kWh and €22.8c/kWh, respectively, in 2017). The average wholesale electricity price on the power exchange fell from ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Italy's per capita energy consumption is 20% lower than the EU average (2.5 toe in 2017). Electricity consumption per capita is nearly 5 000 kWh, i.e. 12% below the EU average.

    Total energy consumption declined by an average of 2.6%/year between 2005 and 2014. It rose by 4% in 2015 and has averaged 153 Mtoe since then (+1.1% in 2017).
