3 Regional energy budget Gross internal consumption Agriculture (3%) Industry (33%) Trasnports (29%) Residential (22%) Third sector (13%) FINAL ENERGETIC CONSUMPTION - CONSUMPTION AND LOSSES FOR PRODUCTION, PROCESSING AND TRASNPORTS OF ENERGY - NON ENERGETIC USES Value in OET - (OET: oil equivalent tons) (30%) (70%) Internal productionNet import Energy supply Energy demand

4 A new strategy of regional energy policy in Emilia-Romagna The Regional Government strongly committed itself with the objective of reduction of greenhouse gas set by the National Government as a concurrence of Italy to Kyoto Protocol.
