The conference organized by Assocostieri – entitled “Energy logistics, strategic asset of the Mediterranean” – it will be an opportunity to meet and constructively discuss issues of energy transition, as he explains the New Agency.
From fuels to the development of energy logistics
The three round tables will address the issue of transition fuels and the development of energy logistics in the naval and land sectors, the evolution of the energy sector on the basis of the Fuel Decree, environmentally oriented taxes and extra profits, energy communities in the port area to respond to sustainability and security of supply needs.
“The energy transition – commented the general manager of Assocostieri, Dario Soria – it is an opportunity, but to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 it is necessary to create a competitive infrastructure system. The ever-increasing use of renewable and alternative fuels implies a new set-up of logistics infrastructures, which requires operators to make a great effort to adapt. Sustainability certainly remains central, but it is important to take due account of energy security. For the progressive decarbonisation of the sector, it is necessary to intervene with streamlined and simplified investments and authorization processes as well as to intervene on the taxation of energy products by introducing a facilitated taxation on biofuels and alternative fuels as well as providing for reward mechanisms”.
Focus on energy communities
To contribute to the country’s sustainable development, Assocostieri dedicated a moment of study to the theme of energy communities in the port sector, reserved for members of Ifec, theItalian Forum of Energy Communities of which Assocostieri is technical partner. The event will be an opportunity to explore the main points of attention on the prospects of energy communities in port areas as a driving force for the Transition.
