[automatically translated] In recent years the focus on issues related to climate change and energy supply has become increasingly important. The European Union approved the "climate-energy package" which aims, by 2030, to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by 40% compared to 1990 and increase the share of energy produced from renewable sources to at least 27% . To begin to estimate the benefits induced by the increase in electricity production from renewable sources, in this paper we estimated the energy and environmental impacts associated with the production of 1 kWh of electricity in Sicily over the period 2000-2011, through the ' application of Life Cycle Assessment methodology.
