86% environmentally-friendly energy
86% of energy production plants are powered by renewable sources (hydro or solar) or integrated (cogeneration).
In 2017, the Group developed projects to increase hydroelectric production by building new plants and redeveloping/repowering existing plants. Furthermore, the commitment to increasing the plants efficiency, and in particular the cogeneration plants connected to the continuously expanding district heating networks, is consistent.
The timely management of the photovoltaic plants continued in 2017, which represent an important asset considering the commitment of the Group to produce clean energy.
In 2017, electricity production from the Group’s waste-to-energy plants (Parma, Piacenza and Turin) rose by around 26% compared to the previous year, reaching a total of 574,401 MWh.
