Renewable energy sources
Electricity produced from renewable sources
The total installed capacity of these plants increased by about 350%, from 1,129 kW in 2019 to 5,122 kW in 2020, a good 3,993 kW more
The total energy produced by renewable energy plants stood at around 22,125 MWh in 2020, mainly due to cogeneration plants and the installation of new back-up plants on the gas transport network (increase in monitored plants and replacement of obsolete models)
In 2020, the Group recorded a significant increase in the number of plants for the production of renewable energy, which reached 2,360 units (+32% compared to 2019), and in the total installed capacity, which rose from 1,129 kW to 5,122 kW, a good 3,993 kW more than in 2019, mainly due to cogeneration plants (+3,922 MW) and the installation of new back-up plants on the gas transport network (increase in monitored plants and replacement of obsolete models). The total energy produced was equal to 22,125 MWh.
Snam's commitment and investments in this area have resulted in the achievement of the target set for 2020 for the annual production of electricity from photovoltaic plants: a target of 860 MWh, largely exceeded by the year's production of 872 MWh. This target was also included in the ESG Scorecard, confirming the commitment for the three-year period 2021-2023.
Regarding the improvement of energy efficiency in buildings, the work was delayed due to the rescheduling of activities due to Covid-19: the activities carried out during the year resulted in a saving of 15,000 m3 of gas and 65 MWh, compared to the expected 75,000 m3 and 210 MWh.
