During the 44th “Intelligence on the World, Europe and Italy” Forum, Villa d’Este on September 7, 8 and 9, a study entitled “Electrify 2030. Electrification, industrial value chains and opportunities for a sustainable future in Europe and Italy” has been presented.
The most recent statistics from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change show that greenhouse gas emissions worldwide continue to increase (58,710 million tons of CO2 equivalent, +62% compared with 1990 levels), as is awareness about their negative impact on human health. It is clear that the traditional energy paradigm, based on energy production from fossil fuels alone, is no longer viable. Within this context, as shown in the ‘Electrify 2030’ study prepared by The European House – Ambrosetti consultants in collaboration with Enel X and Enel Foundation, the electric carrier has the potential to become the energy vector of the future.
Above all, electrification represents an unprecedented industrial opportunity for Italy.
In terms of electrification technologies, The European House – Ambrosetti simulations predict that the adoption of electric technologies (LED lighting, heat pumps, electric motors and batteries) could activate an overall turnover of between a minimum of €135 billion and a maximum of €326.5 billion for Italy by 2030. The study also provides a number of courses of action to best take advantage of the opportunities offered by electrification in Italy.
