Green energy for a
more sustainable future
Alperia is one of Italy’s largest green energy companies and we are committed to changing the world of energy for a more eco-friendly, sustainable future.
Eco-sustainability and climate protection are increasingly important in terms of climate change. The demand for energy from renewable sources is on the increase. Today more than 90% of the electricity produced in South Tyrol comes from hydroelectric plants, and we at Alperia make a significant contribution to this with 41 hydroelectric power stations throughout South Tyrol.
An important part of our hydroelectric plants is certified, meaning they make 100% green and renewable electricity, in compliance with the regulations, without CO2 emissions. This is a result in line with the aims that the Province of Bolzano has set with its “Strategia clima 2050”, a roadmap that South Tyrol intends to follow to become “KlimaLand”, reducing its carbon footprint and covering energy requirements using clean sources.
To do so not only do we use the energy that comes from our mountains to produce hydroelectric energy, we also continue to boost production from renewables, such as sun and wind. As well as this, we also provide various municipalities in South Tyrol with our eco-friendly district heating systems, powered by locally sourced biomass.
With our investment, we focus on increasing the efficiency and eco-compatibility of our production plants and grids, so as to reduce energy loss to a minimum and also any negative impact on the environment.
