Energia rinnovabilePromotion of energy efficiency

Energia rinnovabilePromotion of renewable energy sourcesLotta al cambiamento climaticoReduction of greenhouse gas emissions
Promotion of energy efficiency at a cross-sector level and achievement of European objectives by 2030, by updating energy systems, promoting innovative solutions that also benefit companies and monitoring existing projects. Involvement of consumers through better understanding, information exchange and market transformation on energy efficiencyIncrease in the production of energy from renewable sources and in the share of Italian consumption of energy from renewable sources. Use of local sources in compliance with current EU regulations and use of technologies with more significant impact on the economics sector at Italian level. 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 75.2 million euro, amounting to 18% of the overall EBITDA for CSV.

Around 18% of "shared value" EBITDA was generated from activities belonging to the Global Agenda areas that lead towards a "smart use of energy". 69% of this share of EBITDA is the result of measures aimed at promoting energy efficiency, through (i) commercial offers to energy customers including services and tools to make consumption more efficient, (ii) energy efficiency services for the Public Administration, businesses and condominiums, (iii) industrial cogeneration, (iv) gradual energy efficiency of the public lighting service (particularly the extension of LED light points). The residual percentage of EBITDA from activities relating to the "smart use of energy" is linked to spreading renewable energy. In this area, the margins are calculated from: (i) the sale of renewable electricity and, since 2019, natural gas with CO2 emission offsetting service, (ii) district heating (for the share of heat generated from geothermal sources), (iii) the generation of renewable electricity from biogas deriving from landfills and from the anaerobic digestion of waste, (iv) biomethane production.
