Energy distribution

We distribute the power supply and heating mainly in the metropolitan area of Rome for both private use and public and artistic lighting. In just the Rome area, we distribute 9.1 TWh of electricity to over 1.6 million delivery points and control a public and artistic lighting network of 200,765 lighting points.

We constantly focus on reducing our environmental impact: we are committed to energy efficiency projects and the development of new technologies - from LED lamps, smart grid projects and electrical mobility to renewable energy plants - which reduce the light pollution and CO2 emissions of our businesses and services.
