Improvement of the production mix

One of the main reasons for developing the grid is to overcome the limitations on transmission between “electric zones”. These limitations impose restrictions on the possibility of producing with more efficient generating units – ones that pollute less in terms of CO2 emissions – and at the same time make production with obsolete plants necessary for grid security.

Together with the upgrading of interconnection with foreign grids, the work included in the Developmenti Plan will make possible a more efficient production mix, with a larger share of production from more efficient plants. Thus the same quantity of final consumption would be possible with a smaller quantity of fuel. The benefits can be quantified as a reduction of up to 3,700,000 tons of CO2 emissions a year.
