Let's start with water, the source that helps us expand our potential.
We know it and you know it, too: hydroelectricity is one of the most important renewable energy sources. With no negative impact on the climate, it’s a natural resource in South Tyrol, thanks to its mountainous landscape and its central position in the Alpine region, which make it perfectly suited to use water for the production of clean energy.
Generating green energy in hydroelectric plants allows to avoid producing energy in thermal power stations, thus significantly reducing CO2 emissions.
These environmental plans are a key part of the concessions for large hydroelectric power plants we obtained in 2011.
The goal of our plans? To reduce the impact of hydroelectric production on the environment as much as possible.
Through environmental funds, 43 riparian municipalities have been able to take advantage of ad hoc funding to complete various projects, which include: enhancing the wastewater treatment system, restoring or improving natural environments, implementing energy saving measures, reducing pollution, and preserving the Alpine landscape.
Since 2011, every year Alperia has provided the following amounts:
Environmental plans, our future.
