Energy: Rising prices don’t affect consumption, + 3.2% in first half of 2018

The ISPRED index still worsens (security, prices, decarbonisation). In the first half of 2018 primary energy consumption in Italy has grown by 3.2% as compared to the same period in 2017, driven by transport (+ 2.2%) and the industrial sector (+ 2.6%). In terms of energy sources, there has been an increase in oil consumption (+ 4.5%), which halted a reduction trend in progress since 2016, while consumption of both natural gas (-1.6%), after three years of increases, and the photovoltaic (-10%) dropped, despite the growth of renewables as a whole (+ 9%).
