As per Reuters, Italy minister of energy, Gilberto Pichetto Fratin, stated that Italy wants to source 65% of its energy requirements from clean, renewable sources, compared to the previous target of 55%.

Also, renewables are said to cover 37% of the energy consumed for heating and air conditioning and 31% for the transport sector, respectively.

Green hydrogen will also play a big role in the country's plan to become carbon neutral, as it will account for 42% of all industrial needs by the next decade.

EU representatives asked all member states to send a plan regarding the energy transition which should be completed by the year 2030 in order to address the issues presented by climate change-related events.

Italy's clean energy transition revision is to be reviewed and approved by June 2024 by the European Commission.

One of the things that were not specified in Italy's plans to rethink its energy system was how much carbon emissions would be reduced by 2030 by switching to clean, renewable power.
