Government approves deadline extension for the approval of the PITESAI
The new government of Draghi has extended to September 30rd the deadline for the approval of the PITESAI, the plan of the sustainable energy transition of eligible areas. The project should identify the appropriate areas to accommodate the mining research and oil extraction. Silvia Russo, spokesperson of the Committee “No Oil, Yes Renewable Energy”, believes that the new deadline is very risky, especially if there is no clear political direction behind the issue. According to her, the PITESAI plan is a priority and the Committee asks the government to accelerate the works of the “ecologic transition” and to approve the moratorium on new permits for the search and extraction of oil that territorial movements have been demanding for too many years now.
