In addition to the principal initiatives of 2010 – the electrification project in Kami, the “Vote your value”project, and the Terna Prize 03 – the other initiatives were the following:

  • Centennial of Confindustria. A member of the committee promoting the celebrations of the centennial, Terna supported the initiatives with which Confindustria fêted its first hundred years. From publications and exhibitions of contemporary art and photography to large conferences, this anniversary was an opportunity for emphasizing the entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to get things done, essential values of Confindustria and the entire Italian productive system.  
  • 40th National Conference of Young Entrepreneurs on “Responsibility and reforms for a different future for Italy” (Santa Margherita Ligure, June 11-12). The issues on which the young Italian entrepreneurs focused at their 2010 national conference – interpreting the dynamism and speed of change as decisive factors of competitiveness and growth, investing in the new generations understood as a primary value – are perfectly in keeping with Terna’s values and actions.
  • 1st Smart Grid International Forum (Rome, November 30–December 1). Terna supported the initiative organized by the ANIE (National Federation of Electro-technological and Electronic Companies) and Wec Italia Master to bring together enterprises, institutions, and associations for discussion of the most important Italian and international projects on smart grids and promote a summary of the main institutional meetings on the subject held in Europe, the U.S.A., and South America.     
  • 4th edition of the Pimby (Please in My Backyard) Prize. Conceived by the association of the same name, this is an award given to the local governments that promote a culture of sustainability of getting things done by constructing works on their territory with the agreement of the inhabitants and in compliance with the relevant regulations. Terna supports the prize to foster a sustainable approach based on consultation with local communities.  
  • National Conference on Biodiversity (Rome, May 20-21) and the International Biodiversity Day (Rome, May 22), both of which were promoted by Ministry of the Environment and the University of Rome “La Sapienza”.
  • Connectivity 02. This is the internationalization project of the Terna Prize 02 for interconnecting Italian and foreign artists to share and exchange experiences, encourage the creative talent of up-and-coming artists, and promote them at the international level. Supported by the Ministry for Cultural Assets and Activities and developed in cooperation with the Foreign Ministry, the project provides for the selection every year of a capital of contemporary art with which to establish connectivity. In concurrence with the World Fair, for 2010 the capital selected was Shanghai, where from June 4 to July 12 an exhibition of the award-winning works of the Terna Prize 02 was held at the SUPEC - Urban Planningi Exhibition Center.
  • Campiello Foundation: Terna supported the 48th edition of the Campiello Literature Prize, which is organized and promoted by the Veneto Confindustria.

Artistic and cultural initiatives are the area with the highest concentration of Terna’s community initiatives, reflecting – among other things – the Company’s long commitment in organizing the Terna Prize for contemporary art. Support for environmental causes, instead, is normally connected with the construction of new lines. The valuation of Terna’s commitment in this area must therefore consider expenses for the environment, as well as the expenses classified according to the LBG model .
