Italy aims to generate nearly two thirds of its electricity from renewable energy sources by the end of the decade, the energy ministry said on Friday, slightly improving targets made public three years ago. In a revision of the country's energy and climate plan, the ministry said Italy aimed to get 65% of its electricity from renewables by 2030, up from a previous target of 55%.

Renewables are expected to cover 40% of gross energy consumption in all the sectors - including power production, housing and transportation - by the end of the decade versus 30% in the old plan. For heating and air conditioning, renewable sources should provide 37% of consumption and 31% in the transport sector, the ministry said.
