In 2004, the Italian state devolved power to Italian regions to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources while maintaining the national scale of such promotion. Within the strategic law, several measures served to reorganize the energy markets and encourage competition:
- domestic customers may choose electricity suppliers from 1 July 2007
- green certificate trading expanded from renewable and CHP projects to include hydrogen

The law also reduces the size of green certificates from the initial value of 100 MWh to 50 MWh.
