Towards Italian Decarbonisation and Energy Sustainability - TIDES
Decarbonising the economy is the final goal and greatest challenge of the European Union climate policy. To maintain the EU leadership in climate action and accomplish such ambition each Member State must contribute to the EU proposed policies, while taking into account their specific situation as well as potential domestic barriers. A constant evaluation of the policies implemented is thus needed in order to monitor the process, verify whether successful outcomes are achieved, and identify risks that may hinder compliance. Moreover, the design and assessment of future policies requires permanent coordination and consultation between the European Commission and its Member States in an iterative manner. This project aims to facilitate the coordination and consultation process between Italy and the European Commission in the design of future decarbonised and energy sustainable scenarios.
For this purpose, a national initiative brings together the Italian government and several national public and private research institutions organised in four Working Groups in charge of the following tasks:
FEEM contributes to Working Group 3 with its expertise in mitigation and decarbonisation analysis, and coordinates Working Group 4 collecting all contributions from the other Working Groups in a coordinated final assessment.
