 Italy has completed 214MW of new PV capacity this March.


 This compares to approximately 126MW registered in February and 232MW for January.


 The Italian energy agency Gestore dei Servizi Energetici SpA states this brings Italy’s total solar PV installed capacity to 16.7GW.


 However, state support for PV will come to an end when the Conto Energia V programme hits its cap of €6.7 billion (US$8.7 billion), which the industry fears could negatively impact future installation figures.


 But the government has said it remains optimistic that Italy can still add 1GW of solar PV every year despite the cessation of subsidies.


 The International Energy Agency's recent study states that 5.75% of Italy’s overall electricity is generated from PV, ahead of all other European countries, which have at least passed the 1% mark.
