This article explores the issue of local opposition to renewable energy projects in Italy focusing on possible remedies for this problem. After having analysed the main protagonists of the protests and their motivations, the article tries to identify tools and strategies to create a greater consensus around these infrastructures. Alongside the role played by correct information, the need to involve local communities in decision-making processes is emphasized: in this regard, this study examines the Public Debate procedure, recently introduced in our legal system. The article also engages with compensatory measures in favour of the areas where renewable energy projects are located. Lastly, attention is paid to Renewable Energy Communities, an innovative instrument that brings together citizens and other local actors to produce their own energy, generating a substantial added value in terms of local acceptance of renewables.

Abstract

This article explores the issue of local opposition to renewable energy projects in Italy focusing on possible remedies for this problem. After having analysed the main protagonists of the protests and their motivations, the article tries to identify tools and strategies to create a greater consensus around these infrastructures. Alongside the role played by correct information, the need to involve local communities in decision-making processes is emphasized: in this regard, this study examines the Public Debate procedure, recently introduced in our legal system. The article also engages with compensatory measures in favour of the areas where renewable energy projects are located. Lastly, attention is paid to Renewable Energy Communities, an innovative instrument that brings together citizens and other local actors to produce their own energy, generating a substantial added value in terms of local acceptance of renewables.
