Development of currently mature technologies and promotion of research and innovationPromotion of initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across sectors, by developing joint strategies at several levels of governance and creating sustainable and repeatable solutions aimed at limiting the negative impacts of global warming


Hera Group has defined specific short and medium-term objectives for each impact area of the smart use of energy driver, on the basis of an analysis of the Italian and global scenario. We check and redefine these objectives yearly.

In total, the EBITDA for CSV related to the "Smart Use of Energy" driver was 64.4 million euro, amounting to 20% of the overall EBITDA for CSV.

75% of this share of the EBITDA comes from initiatives aimed at the promotion of energy efficiency, by developing commercial offers for the Group's customers and reducing internal energy consumption, paying special attention to the water service, to public lighting and to district heating. The remaining share is linked to the promotion of renewable energy sources, both by providing ad hoc commercial offers and by producing energy from renewable sources. The share of EBITDA for CSV related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions was for the entire "Energy" driver, i.e. the sum of promotion of renewable energy sources and promotion of energy efficiency.
