Utility Week;5/7/2010, Vol. 32 Issue 16, p10
Trade Publication
The article discusses the higher power prices faced by the utilities industry in Italy brought about by the increasing French nuclear outages that force suppliers to rely on costly domestic combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants. Due to higher gas prices, the utilities industry in Italy is forced to rely on cheaper power from France and Switzerland in order to cover baseload capacity. In 2010, Italian gas tariffs have increased by more than five percent despite the fall in wholesale prices across Europe.
