MAY 2014: PRIMIERO IS AWARDED FIRST PRIZE IN THE LEGAMBIENTE RENEWABLE MUNICIPALITIES CONTEST
Legambiente presents Renewable Municipalities 2014, a map of green energy and innovation in Italian energy networks.
Our eight municipalities were recognised as a symbol of the new distributed generation scene. The Renewable Municipalities 2014 prize therefore goes to our territory, which is formed by Canal di San Bovo, Fiera di Primiero, Imèr, Mezzano, Sagron Mis, Siror, Tonadico and Transacqua.
The Primiero Valley, through a mix of five different technologies, satisfies the entire thermal and electrical needs of the Municipalities. Through two district heating networks (45 km long) and a publically owned electricity network, the municipally owned company, ACSM, distributes energy to users, produced by various sized hydroelectric plants (145 MW) and photovoltaic plants (4 MW) for the electrical part, and from solar plants (with 996 m2 of panels) and biomass plants (22 MW) for the thermal part.
