Industry 5.0: The fifth industrial revolution is just around the corner 

industria 5.0

After the era of digital transformation, the industrial system is now facing a new challenge: the integration of human creativity and craftsmanship with the advanced capabilities of technology and automation. This new paradigm, referred to as Industry 5.0, is shaping the future of companies that want to combine environmental sustainability with digital innovation. 

At the heart of this development is the recently adopted plan for the transition to Industry 5.0, which is massively supported by the RepowerEu plan with more than 6.3 billion euros. These funds will be used to catalyse the green and digital transformation of companies by pushing the concept of Industry 4.0 with a more advanced touch. 

One of the most striking features of the “Transition 5.0” plan is the continuity of the tax incentive package for Industry 4.0, which will remain in force with the rates already set. This is described by Speaker Spallone as an ‘addendum’ to the “Transition 4.0” plan. 

The main mechanism remains that of tax credits, but with one significant difference. In the 2024-2025 period, the 5.0 plan provides for tax credits for companies that invest in tangible and intangible 4.0 assets. These investments also include the self-generation and self-consumption of energy from renewable sources and the training of personnel in the skills required for the ecological transition. 

The intensity of the tax credit will increase according to the improvements achieved by the companies, with a focus on at least 3% of final energy consumption and 5% savings compared to previous consumption achieved in the target processes. 

In contrast to the Industry 4.0 plan, companies must now obtain double certification. An ‘ex-ante’ certification, which is carried out by an independent assessor, certifies that the innovation project meets the funding criteria in terms of reducing overall energy consumption. The ‘ex-post’ certification, on the other hand, certifies the actual implementation of the investments in accordance with the provisions of the ex-ante certification. 

Plan 5.0 also includes a specific measure, financed with 320 million from RepowerEu funds, to promote the self-consumption of renewable energy by micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. 

For companies wondering about documentation related to maintaining technology features and doubts about facilitating 4.0 investments, the Transition 5.0 Plan seeks to dispel uncertainty by providing a clear framework for the future of Industry 5.0. 

An enlightening perspective on Industry 5.0 

In this context of industrial evolution towards Industry 5.0, new opportunities are opening up for companies that want to combine technological innovation with environmental sustainability.
