Cristiano graduated from Bologna University Law School, in Italy, and holds an MSc in Economics from Warwick University (UK).
Italy provides some of Europe’s best weather conditions for solar power production, and (as of August 2022) has an installed capacity of 21GW. And with 85% of the public believing solar power to be the energy source of the future, this positive public reception provides the ideal springboard for installing new solar assets across the country. The newly elected government promise to support the renewables industry and implement measures to tackle the climate crisis, but it remains to be seen what the efficacy of a rollout in such legislation will be.
