3 THE ITALIAN PV MARKET A Young Market –Net Metering permitted only since Dec Subsidy Programme launched in 2001 –Managed by Min.Env./ Regions –Grants up to 75% of Investment Costs –Max PV Price fixed (7,25 – 8,00 €/W) No Installations made in 2001 First Installations in 2002 New Subsidy Programme launched in 2002
