Consultations concluded

7. Green Energy (2018)

At what point is the production of energy from renewable sources in Italy? What are the costs and benefits, risks and opportunities, regulatory obstacles and legislative interventions necessary to quintuple, by 2030, the green energy produced and consumed in our country? The new European directive on the promotion of renewable energy use foresees a 32% share of "green" production in all EU Member States in the next 12 years, together with a reduction in the cost of electricity and the right to self-production, self-consumption and energy storage.

The Senate Committee for Industry, Commerce and Tourism launched a public consultation on Support for productive activities through the use of systems for the generation, storage and self-consumption of electricity. A total of 480 participants answered the online questionnaire on three key issues: closed distribution systems (CDS); generation, storage and self-consumption of energy from renewable sources in condominiums and other buildings; renewable energy communities (Local Energy Communities - LEC).

Out of 277 fully completed questionnaires - now being examined by the Senate offices - 67 percent were presented by individual citizens (185 contributions), while 33 percent (92 questionnaires) were the result of participation by public authorities, companies, universities, research centres and governmental and non-governmental entities.

The contributions will be made public in full and will help the Committee in drafting the resolution that, by way of the Presidency of the Senate, will be sent to the Government to inform the adaptation of national law to the upcoming "renewables directive" that will guide the legislation of the Member States of the Union from 2020 to 2030.

Assigned matter no. 59- Support for production activities through the use of systems for the generation, storage and self-consumption of electricity

6. Femicide (2017)

What has changed for Italian women with the approval of anti-feminicide rules? Are the new provisions on gender-based violence effective? Have the murders and assaults decreased? Is Italy implementing the Istanbul Convention? The parliamentary committee of inquiry into feminicide carried out a consultation to collect data and analyse the outcome of all criminal proceedings between 2011 and 2016 where the alleged victim was "a woman over the age of 14": in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, a 48-point questionnaire was forwarded to all the General Public Prosecutor's offices by way of the Public Prosecutor's Offices and the Court of Appeals. The questionnaire was also sent to the Public Prosecutor's Office at the Supreme Court and to the Supreme Court itself.
