Italian constitutional court rejects appeal against retrospective FiT cuts

By Giorgia Concas, Senior Policy Advisor

On 6 December the Italian constitutional court decided that the question on the constitutional legitimacy of retrospective cuts to PV FiTs (so-called "spalma incentivi") is "unfounded". These cuts were adopted in 2014 and applied as of 1st January 2015 to PV systems above 200 kW. Our member association Assorinnovabili, which has led the appeal against the cuts, will wait for the publication of the grounds of this judgement before deciding on follow up actions.
