Rome, July 27 (askanews) – The biomass associations sign for the first time a unitary document to ask the government to put the bioenergy sector back on the political agenda. A sector that produces renewable energy and above all promotes local development and protection of the territory in the so-called “internal and marginal” areas.
The associations express strong concern for the future of the sector. According to AIEL, Italian Association of Agroforestry Energy, EBS, Italian Association of Solid Biomass Energy Producers, Future Electricity, the main Association of the Italian electricity world and FIPER, Italian Federation of Energy Producers from Renewable Sources, maintenance is a priority. current generation capacity and for the development of new biomass capacity. Crucial intervention for the planning of renewables to 2030 and the achievement of the targets outlined by the Government in the National Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) sent to Brussels.
In the Manifesto “Proposals for the continuity and development of wood biomass plants”, the Associations hope for concrete actions, starting with the issue of the expected “DM FER2”, but more generally of measures, related to the implementation of the PNIEC and of the European Green Deal, who are able to recognize the necessary support for a sector in great suffering. In the absence of measures, the associations point out, “the current difficulties in carrying out new initiatives, as well as the progressive disposal of a still performing plant park, will make it even more difficult to achieve the objectives set. In this delicate phase of restarting for our country, the biomass energy production (thermal, electric, air conditioning) ensures the development of local supply chains, with environmental, social and economic benefits: from the management and maintenance of the forest heritage, to the enhancement of marginal land and the use of by-products up to the redistribution of the income in the territory. Furthermore, in the production of technologies and services for the biomass sector, the national industry expresses dynamic and innovative realities. Finally, the programmability characteristic of this source and the possibility of using it for all energy uses, both in applications utility and residential scales make it special useful in the transition towards a model characterized by the diffusion of intermittent sources and distributed generation solutions based on the interaction between producers-distributors-consumers (energy communities). It is therefore necessary, now more than ever, to focus on this sector through a more ambitious contribution than that proposed by the PNIEC “.
