Italy expected to introduce PV market cap


Riccardo Battisti from consulting firm Ambiente Italia told pv magazine that a decision could be reached on either Wednesday or Thursday of this week. "There are no other details available," he stated, "but, unfortunately, even without further details, the consequences are clear: no more feed-in tariff in a short time."

While there are currently disputes about how much newly installed PV capacity was added in Italy last year – figures estimate that anything between 1.8 and three GW was installed – many in the industry believe eight GW could be reached as early as this summer.

Battisti went on to say that the country’s PV associations are currently working hard to avoid the cap. None, however, could be reached for comment.
