Italian Power Market Outlook 2019-2050

Italy has favourable conditions especially for a rapid growth
of PV capacity that will be realized both via tenders and
PPA-based merchant investments. This development
started with utility-scale PV projects, but also Italian wind
energy is currently at the verge of market parity. Where
will this development lead in the future and what needs
to be considered when planning and investing into Italian
RES projects with PPAs? European power market analyst
enervis and the international law firm Bird & Bird with its
offices in Italy have joined forces to answer these questions!

Our clients benefit from:

  • bankable projections of power prices & spreads
  • capture prices of renewables (PV, Wind)
  • generation mix on a country level
  • pipeline of PPA projects
  • trusted market intelligence
