Speeding up permitting authority in Tuscany

Tuscany voted last month to commit the supervisory board of its regional government to speed up the slow bureaucratic process for the authorisation of wind farms. The central Italian region is aiming to increase its wind capacity to about 300 MW in 2020 from a current 27 MW. Speeding up the site permitting process is seen as a priority elsewhere in Italy, too. Coordinamento Nazionale Piccoli Comuni, an association representing the country's small towns, wrote to the wind-rich regions of Apulia, Sicily, Calabria and Basilicata asking them to accelerate the process. Royalties from hosting wind farms can be a significant source of income for some small southern Italian towns.
