The “Green Electrification of Sardinia” project
The abandonment of fossil fuels for energy production in Sardinia, with the transition to a mix of generation based exclusively on renewable sources, combined with the spread of electrification of end uses is a path that will allow the Sardinian territory to make a leap towards full decarbonization.
This in the perspective of environmental sustainability, savings and energy efficiency. It’s what is foreseen by “Green Electrification of Sardinia”, the project included among the Multi-stakeholders Energy Compact of the United Nations and considered as a model for the diffusion of electrification and energy transition at global level. The project “Green Electrification of Sardinia” was presented at the online event organized by Enel, University of Roma Tre – Centro Ricerche Economiche e Sociali Manlio Rossi-Doria, with the support of Alleanza Sardegna Rinnovabile (which brings together WWF, Kyoto Club, Greenpeace and Legambiente).
