Resource use and waste management

The production of a service normally does not require significant material inputs, and thus does not entail the processing of a significant quantity of waste. The transmission service is no exception with regard to materials that enter and exit the production cycle. The most significant kinds of consumption regard energy. 
 
However, the transmission service requires the construction and maintenance of a large stock of capital goods, mainly electric lines (pylons, conductors, insulators), transformation stations (transformers, switches, other equipment), and control systems.
 
Therefore, both Terna’s resource use and its waste management regard mainly the construction and maintenance of electric and IT infrastructure.
