There are plenty of opportunities within the market ofgreen energy producers since European Union regulations have required the using of green energy.

The European Union energy policy focuses on developing renewable energy sources for reducing the negative effects of energy use on the environment and, in the same time, to cut the dependence on imported fuels. The growth of renewable energy sources also stimulates employment in Europe, the creation of new technologies and improves the trade balance.

           

Italy represents one of the Europe's most attractive energy markets where demand continues to rise ahead of the European average. 

Italy has been the fastest growing market in the photovoltaic industry in recent years. In September 2011, the Italian network agency, GSE, reports that photovoltaic installations in Italy have reached over 10 gigawatts (GW). Already this year, says the agency, 6.5 GW have been installed.

According to data, there are over 270,000 photovoltaic systems currently in operation in Italy.

Specifically, under the fourth Conto Energia, 26,134 photovoltaic systems have come into operation, worth 1.7 GW. Meanwhile, under the third Conto Energia, 38,122 systems totaling 1.59 GW were installed. The second Conto Energia, on the other hand, saw 200,963 systems worth 6.56 GW installed, and the first Conto Energia saw 5,734 systems installed amounting to 163 megawatts (MW).

Puglia is said to be the region with the highest level of installed capacity: currently, there are 1.68 GW worth of photovoltaics installed there, spread across 17,812 systems. The Lombardy region, however, takes the crown for the most number of installed systems (38,810 systems worth 993 MW). This is followed by Veneto, with 36,066 systems and 894 MW.

GSE adds that, in the first half of this year, an estimated 6.5 GW of photovoltaics has been installed. It says that by the end of the year, 12 GW, or 350,000 systems could be reached. If this is achieved, Italy would overtake Germany to become the leading country in terms of installed photovoltaic capacity.

           

ALPHA METAL intends to develop in Italy four photovoltaic projects.

ALPHA METAL company will implement its projects in locations approved by the local authorities and the activity will function under legal certificates and licenses.
