White Certificates

To encourage the use of energy efficiency technologies in 2004 were launched two ministerial decrees by the Ministry of Productive Activities and the Environment and the Protection of the Territory, the Ministerial Decrees of 20 July 2004, amended and supplemented by subsequent Ministerial Decree of December 21, 2007 amended again by the legislative decrees 115/2008 and 28/2011.

The mechanism, innovative in the world, has led to the creation of a market for energy efficiency certificates, the so-called White Certificates, attesting the interventions realized, similar to that of Green Certificates adopted for the promotion of renewable energy in electricity generation.

The Authority for Electricity and Gas has been entrusted with the task of drawing up guidelines to establish in details the mechanism of the Decrees.
