The financial law, approved at the end of the year 2000, establishes a fund for the reduction of atmospheric emissions and the promotion of energy efficiency and sustainable energy sources. The fund is financed from a portion equal to 3% of the receipts accruing from the Law 23/12/1998 N.448 (carbon tax). Among other activities, the fund will finance up to 80% of the cost of programmes for installation of solar collectors (mostly PV), particularly in southern Italy, and reforestation programmes to increase absorption of CO2. The most recent intervention aimed at promoting measures for reducing GHG emissions, increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources is the "Revolving Kyoto Fund".
