– The minister said that the government is studying “specific measures to drastically simplify the field of renewable energy sources. Among them is liberalizing the installation of solar, thermal or photovoltaic panels on buildings (except for buildings designated as cultural heritage, where the installation will in any case be subject to a simplified licensing procedure)”.
– The law defines the characteristics of buildings in which “Ferr systems (renewable energy sources) can be installed and produce energy by default, starting with abandoned industrial areas and agricultural areas abandoned or unproductive for more than 5 years”. The Executive then intends to extend cases “in which interventions on existing plants are not subject to environmental and landscape assessment, nor to obtaining approval documents”, incorporating “simplification assumptions” and in particular “the appointment of an extraordinary commissioner of government to dispose of inventories of license applications submitted until Now, with the ability to override the veto power of the regulators.”
It is also planned, as Brunetta said, “to strengthen the units dedicated to licensing Fer plants within a pool of a thousand experts and to plan training interventions aimed at local authorities on licensing procedures and simplify interventions, using the platform “Italian Capabilities” for technical assistance to intercept the needs of the regions and to make available expert specialists.”
– The goal is to halve the deadlines for completing administrative procedures, to monitor economic activities so that they move towards greater compliance, as unnecessary procedures will be eliminated, and to fully digitize the one-stop shop of production activities and the one-stop center building. The public function has in fact opened up a consultation involving citizens, businesses, public servants, and departments to obtain useful elements for mapping the 600 actions that Pnrr’s Milestone M1C1-63 requires to be simplified. Environmental permits, building permits, digital infrastructure and public procurement are priority sectors.
On the disability front and fighting the digital divide, the goal will be to simplify “an organization created to protect the vulnerable who turn against them,” says Brunetta. In this sense, there is the Polis project that provides places of contact between the center and the periphery for people who do not have access to digital pathways: 6 thousand support centers.
In view of this, digitization of procedures for production and construction activities. Currently, the practice, once accepted, must be categorized into the different systems involved, which do not automatically communicate with each other, resulting in delays and inefficiencies. By ensuring full interoperability, downtime will be eliminated.
The minister stressed that the priority is the freeing up of solar panels in public buildings by about one million: a change in this sense would guarantee huge energy savings.
