The two volumes of the Arera Annual Report – the Regulatory Authority for Energy and the Environment – on the state of services and the activities carried out in 2020 have been published and can be downloaded from the website www.arera.it. The traditional presentation of the College to the Parliament and the Government will be held at the end of September. The elements contained in the two volumes concern the calendar year 2020, influenced by the national and international impact of the Covid pandemic. A picture changed in 2021, thanks to the recovery of the economies. Average electricity prices for Italian domestic consumers in 2020 significantly improved compared to other euro area countries, lower than the continental average, the most expensive in Germany. Gas consumption down and Italian prices even higher than the EU average for domestic customers, but the difference is narrowing. In the water sector 15.5 billion in investments made, about 98% of planned interventions completed, losses down from 43% to 41%; 317 € / year the average expenditure for a typical family of 3 people. The governance of the waste sector has been fragmented, with over 7,400 operators registered in the Authority’s registry office, 3,523 the territorially competent bodies; the waste tariff method covers over 48 million inhabitants. Over 1.8 million bonuses paid to families in need for discounts on water, electricity and gas supplies, for over 232 million euros, figures destined to increase, with the automatic discount on the bill from July 2021. These are just some of the main elements for electricity, gas, water, waste and telecheat that emerge from the more than 480 pages of the volumes of the Annual Report of Arera, a snapshot of public services in the country in the year of the pandemic.
