The operation contributes to the EU-wide target of 32% of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption (RES) by 2030 as set out in the EU RE Directive (Directive (EU) 2018/2001). It further contributes to the national renewable energy targets laid out in Italy's Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP). In addition, the majority of investments will also be located in convergence regions.
