The development of renewable energy in Italy has progressed rapidly over the past decade, not least due to generous incentive schemes for the development of renewable energy generation. Gradually, Italy is freeing itself from its dependence on imported fuels. Through increased solar, wind and bioenergy, Italy now generates a large share of its electricity from renewable sources. 

Italy is among the leaders in Europe in terms of renewable energy grid expansion. In 2018 and 2020, Italy exceeded its own renewable energy targets. The national energy and climate plan calls for renewable energy to account for 30% of consumption by 2030.
