Improvement of the production mix

One of the main objectives of the development of the transmission grid is to overcome the limits of transportation between “electric zones”. These limits impose several restrictions on the possibility of production by generation units that are more efficient – i.e. less polluting in terms of CO2 emissions – and at the same time make production by obsolete and inefficient power plants necessary for the security of the grid.     
Together with the upgrading of interconnection with other countries, the work provided for by the 2011 Developmenti Plan will make a production mix possible that is more efficient than the current one, with a larger share of production by plants with higher yields. The same quantity of end consumption will be possible with a smaller quantity of fuel, and the benefits can be quantified as a reduction of CO2 emissions of up to 3,700,000 tons a year.
