According to Italia Solare, Italy installed 431 MWh of storage capacity in 2021, compared to 112 MWh in 2020. The northern regions Lombardia and Veneto are particularly successful in increasing installed storage capacity by implementing specific funding schemes.

The results of the survey show that 89% of the surveyed installers in Italy offer energy storage to their customers, compared to 64% from last year’s survey. A further 10% are planning to include storage solutions in their portfolio by the end of 2022. This development indicates a growing market for storage systems.

Additionally, 45 % of the survey participants in Italy offer electric mobility solutions. The growing market penetration of electric vehicles will further increase the demand for storage systems, both for the installation of home charging stations as well as to support the grid in coping with the increasing electricity demand.

In 2021, Italy simplified the permitting procedure for small storage systems to boost the growth of the PV storage market. Currently, the net-billing and Superbonus (110 % tax deduction) schemes are driving the small-scale solar PV segment. However, the country needs to further adjust its incentive schemes in order to achieve its ambitious targets for the solar PV sector.
