Head of Decarbonisation Policy

Italian English

Chiara Di Mambro is Head of Decarbonisation Policy at ECCO

Chiara comes from a long lasting experience in the public adiministration at national and eu level, having worked under different contractors for the Ministry of ecological Transition as of 2005 and having been seconded to DG Clima at the European Commission as of 2010 to 2012.

Chiara’s experience starts as an Emissions trading specialist, following the very first national implementation of the ETS directive, as member and then coordinator (in 2015) of the technical secretariat of the national competent authority and then she’s been included in the task force for the definition of the technical basis of the national position throughout all the revisions of the directive itself. Based on this solid competence, Chiara has been involved on the negotiation processes for the national governments of many pieces of climate legislation at EU level as well as to national implementation of some of them.

Chiara was member of the delegation to UNFCCC as of 2013 to 2018 and was co-chair of the EU informal group of coordination on mitigation policies as of 2014 to 2016.

Chiara was part of the National Commission for the Environmental Impact Assessment from 2008 to 2010 and, then again from 2012 to 2020, assessing projects related to the energy field with national relevance.

With a master degree in environmental engineering at University of Rome La Sapienza, Chiara’s profile combines a technical knowledge of the climate change and environment issues with the knowledge of policy negotiations modes and procedures at eu and international level.

In continuity with the academic background, in 2018, Chiara got a PhD on the application of Life Cycle Assessment methodologies to remediation techniques at University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’.

Industry and electrification: Strategic opportunities for the National Energy and Climate Plan

February 2024
The significant contribution to national emissions by the manufacturing sector depends on its reliance on the use of fossil fuels for energy purposes, as well as on emissions that are inherent in certain production processes (e.g. cement, chemicals, etc.). Framing the country’s industrial development prospects within the path of reducing greenhouse gas emissions represents a strategic opportunity. The definition of the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) due by next June, is a unique opportunity for action.

How much investment is needed for the decarbonisation of the Italian economy?

September 2023
WRITTEN BYMario Noera et al.
A propaedeutic analysis for the revision of the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP). Estimates of the total investment that Italy needs in order to align with the new European Fit-for-55 targets range between an average of EUR 122 and EUR 134 billion per year. The additional investments needed are therefore EUR 30-42 billion per year higher than estimated in the NECP (2019), and 2-3 times higher than the amount allocated in the NRRP for the green transition in the 2021-26 five-year period (an average of EUR 14.4 billion per year).

Italy, like other European countries, has been called upon to structure the process of updating the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) through public participation and effective multi-level dialogue, as envisaged by the Energy Union Governance Regulations and reiterated by the Commission’s Guidelines for revision of the Plan. This work shows the availability of resources, time and knowledge to make the NECP a plan that reflects the needs of the country, through a participation-based path.
