Tomorrow evening the headquarters in Piazzale Ostiense and the Offices of Acea Energia in Viale dell’Aeronautica in Rome will switch their lights off
Acea’s school project centered around saving energy is due to start in April.
Acea takes part in the 2021 edition of “M’illumino di meno”, the initiative promoted by the Rai Radio 2 program Caterpillar, organized to promote a responsible use of energy.
Friday 26 March, institutions, businesses, and private citizens who wish to show their support to sustainability and environmental protection issues will switch off their lights as a symbolic and tangible gesture.
Also Acea will switch off the lights of its headquarters in Piazzale Ostiense and of the Offices of Acea Energia in Viale dell’Aeronautica, in Rome, in support to the campaign to raise awareness about a responsible use of energy.
Additionally, Acea Group has centered the 2021 edition of Acea Scuola Digital around the same topic and called it “SiAMO energia! Spegni la luce e accendi la tua fantasia”. An educational journey that can be enjoyed entirely in digital format, in consideration of the current health emergency, to teach students about the world of energy and encourage them to use it responsibly. The journey is centered around three main topics explained during the event: energy, artistic illumination, and sustainability. The online project, dedicated to young students between 9 and 14 years old, will be launched at the end of April and will see the involvement of thousands of students from all over Italy.
The initiative is part of Acea Scuola’s regular educational events, started in 2002 to promote information and training about environmental sustainability among the young generations.
Energy and sustainability intertwine on multiple fronts: for example, Acea is working on a sustainable mobility plan in Rome, which it intends to develop over the next few years. The Capital Services Conference has already authorized the installation of over 100 electric car charging points across the city. But the electric mobility plan is more ambitious, in fact, in its 2020-2024 Business Plan Acea Group has included the installation of 2,200 charging points, 2,000 of which in Rome, for a total investment of 29 million euro.
