Energy Area Overview
The Energy Segment chapter includes Areti, Acea Produzione and Acea Ambiente’s plants. The Ecogena production data are included, as in 2017, in a table in the chapter Energy and water use and are not included in the general data of this chapter. The waste to energy activities are described in the chapter Environment Segment - Waste Management.
The Group oversees the entire electricity supply chain thanks to the operations of companies that, as required by the regulation of the electricity market, are independent of each other.
In particular, Acea is active in the production of electricity and heat; in the distribution of electricity in the Rome and Formello areas, including the management of public lighting; and in the sale of electricity, heat and gas.
Acea is also committed to innovation applied to the management of networks – remote management and smart grid – having to manage, for example, prosumers connected to its energy distribution network, whose flows of electricity generation and consumption are no longer one-way (see also box “Prosumers” connected to the Acea network in the chapter Customers and the community and the sub-section Commitment to research and innovation in Institutions and the company).
