The energy transmission service provided by Terna does not require a significant amount of materials or the handling of a considerable amount of waste.
The service includes, however, the building and maintenance of a certain amount of assets, whose principal components are:
- Power lines: pylons, conductors, insulators
- Transforming stations: transformers, switches, other equipment
- Control systems
In the case of Terna, both the use of materials as well as the management of waste materials relate predominantly to the building and maintenance of electricity and computer infrastructures.
