Italian associations

Terna continues to belong to Confindustria, the most important association representing the interests of Italian firms. In April 2008, the Company also signed a protocol of understanding with the ANIE (National Federation of Electro-technological and Electronic Companies), which is a member of Confindustria. The agreement has a term of three years and provides for common initiatives aimed at institutional and financial interlocutors and the operators of the electricity grids of the other countries of common interest with regard to their respective objectives of international growth.
The ANIE undertakes to encourage its members to offer, at Terna’s request, technical advice on foreign markets and facilitate both exchange of data and other information to improve knowledge about markets of interest.

Terna also participates actively on the CEI (Italian Electro-technological Committee), an organism entrusted with tasks regarding the industry’s technical standards.

Finally, employees with technical roles often belong to professional associations whose purpose is to keep their members up to date, for example, the electrical engineers and the AEIT.
