Vice-President Katainen and the Minister of Ecology and Environment, Li Ganjie*, also signed the , which acknowledges the significant potential of emissions trading to contribute to a low carbon economy and further enhances the cooperation of the two largest emission trading systems of the world. Building on the success of the 2017 EU-China Blue Year, the EU and China have also . Two of the world's largest ocean economies will work together to improve the international governance of the oceans, including by combating illegal fishing and exploring potential business and research opportunities, based on clean technologies, in the maritime economy. The partnership contains clear commitments to protect the marine environment against pollution, including plastic litter; tackle climate change in accordance with the Paris Agreement and implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development , in particular Goal 14 . The signature of this ocean partnership is the first of its kind and opens the door for future partnerships between the EU and other key ocean players. Vice-President Katainen and the Chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission, He Lifeng*, also signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Circular Economy Cooperation that will provide a framework for cooperation, including a high-level policy dialogue, to support the transition to a circular economy.

Francesco Gracceva sottolinea: “L’aumento dei consumi finali più che doppio rispetto alla crescita economica del periodo è stato spinto dal settore civile a causa di un inverno meno mite del precedente” External link

askanews Thursday, July 12, 2018 4:39:00 PM CEST

Francesco Gracceva spiega: “Secondo una nostra stima preliminare – (\*) – il costo medio dell’elettricità pagato dalle imprese con consumi elevati scenderebbe del 5% a metà 2018, con un presumibile miglioramento in termini di competitività. Le riforme degli oneri di sistema avrebbero invece effetti marginali sulle imprese con consumi medio-bassi. A fronte di ciò, nei primi sei mesi dell’anno si stima un leggero incremento del prezzo dell’elettricità per le utenze domestiche (+0,7% rispetto al semestre precedente), prevalentemente a causa dell’aumento della componente ‘oneri di sistema’ in bolletta per gli sgravi concessi agli energivori” External link

Francesco Gracceva aggiunge: “Le emissioni di CO2 sono sostanzialmente invariate rispetto allo stesso periodo 2017, nonostante la crescita significativa dei consumi energetici. D’altra parte però, questa stagnazione delle emissioni consolida un trend sempre meno in linea con gli obiettivi di lungo periodo. Infatti, a una significativa diminuzione delle emissioni nella generazione elettrica negli ultimi due trimestri corrisponde un aumento delle emissioni nel civile e nell’industria e a un dato invariato nei trasporti. Anche per le fonti rinnovabili sembra consolidarsi una traiettoria sostanzialmente stazionaria, non in linea con gli obiettivi di crescita della quota di FER sui consumi finali di energia entro il 2030” External link

Francesco Gracceva sottolinea: “Restano comunque insolute alcune delle criticità dovute alla transizione energetica, sia per il rischio di eccesso di produzione da fonti intermittenti nel sud e nelle isole maggiori nel corso dell’estate sia per un nuovo calo della redditività degli impianti a gas naturale, sintetizzata dall’indicatore spark spread tornato significativamente al di sotto dei 10€/MWh” External link

askanews Thursday, July 12, 2018 4:39:00 PM CEST

Francesco Gracceva conclude: “Nella prima metà dell’anno, pur in una fase di prezzi di petrolio e gas in forte aumento, il sistema energetico italiano mantiene una traiettoria di crescita dei consumi, che non sembra in linea con gli obiettivi di decarbonizzazione; allo stesso tempo, si assiste a un miglioramento sul fronte dei prezzi dell’elettricità e a un allentamento di alcune criticità emerse nell’ultimo anno sulla sicurezza dei sistemi elettrico e del gas naturale” External link
