Abstract

According theKyoto Protocol,nations around theworld,including Italy,need therationalizationofenergy consumption and lower consumption of conventional energy sources to help reduce greenhouse gases emissions. Article 5 of Italian Law 10/1991, in paragraph 5, states that municipalities with more than 50 thousand inhabitants should include a specific plan about the use of renewable energy to improve its efficiency, i.e. a Municipal Energy P lan. The purpose of this paper is to present a pilot case study in the South of Italy of Municipal Energy P lan, an indispensable tool for planning the economic, social and environmental development of the territory. The Municipal Energy Planning is identified among the priority objectives of the Environmental Action Plan adopted by Local Agenda 21. The Energy P lan collects and analyzes all incoming and outgoing energy flows in the municipal area, including the energy use for various sectors (residential, agriculture, industry and handicrafts, services, transport) and for different resources (solid fuels, derived from petroleum, natural gas, electricity). The final phase of the work will be to create some future scenarios that will be implemented by the City Council to address the strategic priorities in the years.
