What we said we would do What we have done Scope
• Continue to promote new gas, electricity and district heating solutions with value added and energy efficiency services. • In 2017 the offers Welcome Hera, Hera ContaWatt, Hera Led and Led Business (over 6,000 light bulb kits purchased by customers in 2017), Energy Management Portal were promoted which help customers check and reduce their consumption. 15.9% of customers joined offers providing energy efficiency services.
• Continue to promote solutions for energy efficiency and individual heat metering in condominiums. • At the end of 2017, 468 condominiums had individual heat metering systems (+22% compared to 2016). At the end of the year, 88 condominiums are using the Servizio Energia service and the savings achieved by its integrated measures are about 27% with respect to total gas consumption Furthermore, Amga Calore Impianti replaced 14 old thermoelectric power stations with high efficiency stations in 2017. ER T
• ISO 50001 energy improvement plan: reduce energy consumption by 3% in 2017 (compared to 2013) and by 5% by 2020 (compared to 2013) • Consumption down 3.6% compared to 2013, thanks to the measures completed in 2017 and down by 4.6% with the further measures already planned. ER T M
• Public lighting: implement energy saving measures and replace lighting fixtures with LED lamps for an annual savings of approximately of 2,400 toe. • Implementation of energy saving measures and replacement of lighting fixtures with LED lamps for an annual saving of 1,400 toe and further measures are underway for 1,100 toe. ER T M
• Electricity consumption: 100% from renewable sources from 2017 for the business of Hera SpA in Emilia-Romagna (144,000 t/year CO2 avoided, equal to 10% of the Group’s total emissions). Extend to AcegasApsAmga and Marche Multiservizi by 2018 • In 2017, 100% of electricity consumption for activities carried out by Hera Spa in Emilia Romagna was from renewable energy: 146,000 tonnes of CO2 avoided, equal to 10% of the Group’s total emissions. Extend to AcegasApsAmga and Marche Multiservizi in the first months of 2018. ER T M
• Start construction of a biodigestion plant to produce biomethane from organic waste, in Bologna. • The construction site for the plant was started in April 2017. ER
• Reduce by 19% by 2020 the carbon footprint of energy production compared to 2015 (kg CO2/MWh) • The carbon footprint of energy production was reduced by 16% in 2017. ER T

 

 

What we will do Scope*
• ISO 50001 energy improvement plan related to Hera Spa, AAA and MMS: reduce energy consumption by over 4% in 2018 and by 5% within 2020 (compared to 2013). ER T M
• Public lighting: implement energy saving measures for 1,300 toe in 2018 including the replacement of lighting fixtures with LED lamps (16% in 2021). ER T M
• Continue to promote new gas, electricity and district heating solutions with energy efficiency services. Customers with these offers reaching 20% of the total amount in 2018 (+30% compared to 2017) and 35% within 2021.
• Heat management contract for properties in the Municipality of Modena: thermal energy consumption -30% in 2019 compared to historical consumption of the last 10 years.
• Continue to promote energy saving solutions for the public administration and industrial customers. Launch the offer «solar thermal system and thermal insulation» for condominiums. ER T
• Start the production of biomethane from organic waste at the Bologna biodigestion plant and design a further plant of energy recovery from methane decompression. ER
• Start a new energy recovery plant from the decompression of methane, through the experimental installation of a medium-small sized turbo expander (330 electric kW) at a medium-sized R&M station, with an estimated production of 1,600 MWh per year (annual consumption for about 600 families). ER
• Reduce by 22% by 2021 the carbon footprint of energy production compared to 2015 (kg CO2/MWh). ER T M
