Resource use and waste management

Resource use and waste managemenThe production of a service does not normally require significant materials and similarly does not entail treatment of significant quantities of waste. The electric power transmission service is no exception. As far as the materials that enter and leave the production cycle of the service are concerned, the most significant consumption concerns energy.

However, the provision of the transmission service requires the construction and maintenance of a large endowment of capital goods: power lines (towers, wires, insulators), transformation stations (transformers, switches, other station equipment), and control systems are the main components.     

Both Terna’s use of materials and its management of waste regard preponderantly the construction and maintenance of electric and IT infrastructure.
