Actions

  • Completed works on two new treatment plants in the Brescia municipalities: San Paolo and Offlaga (for a total of 14,000 equivalent inhabitants)
  • Start of the sites for the construction of the new plants for the treatment of OFMSW (Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste) and the production of compost and biomethane at Lacchiarella (Mi) and Cavaglià (BI)
  • Acquisition of the Group's first wind farm (8,2 MW), located in Campania, and start of the procedures to authorize the installation of electrochemical storage systems for a portfolio of projects of around 60 MW to be built at sites it owns
  • A2A Calore e Servizi entered into an agreement with the REA DALMINE industrial plant, owned by Greenthesis Group, which provides for a 50% increase in the heat available in the district heating network of the city of Bergamo.
  • Completed, on the Milan electricity network, the plan to improve the resilience of electricity grids against the extreme events related to the climate change replacing more than 10,000 joints.
