Table 4a: Products and services reducing GHG emissions A2A




Two offers are provided to customers for buying clean energy at a different price: “Prezzo Sicuro Verde Elettricità” and “EnergiaPulitaA2A”. A2A continues promoting the “Bollett@mail” and “Storico Bollette” service.

“Sostenibile Più” offers customers the chance to buy energy produced from renewable sources.

The Automatic Train Control (ATC) system provides continuous real time transmission to the train of all information necessary to enable the on-board system to constantly supervise train position and speed and to check that the train travels within its assigned safety parameters at all times.

“Toro Sistema Solare”: an insurance policy designed to cover photovoltaic and solar thermal systems installed on

homes, but also systems installed on businesses, hotels, farms, offices and condominiums. INA Assitalia launched “Technological Risks”, a policy to cover specific facilities such as hydroelectric equipment, wind farms and biomass plants.

The Telepass and Safety Tutor systems and congestions time countermeasures have reduced motorway users’ indirect CO2 emissions. The results for Telepass and Tutor Systems show significant impact in 2010, with a reduction of around 91,900 metric tonnes of CO2. As a result of congestion time countermeasures, estimated CO2 emissions saved in 2010 compared to 2005 were approximately 12,800 metric tonnes.

BANCA MONTE DEI “Welcome Energy Package”, a loan to support investment in renewable energies by small and micro-businesses; PASCHI DI SIENA GROUP

BANCA POPOLARE Green fundings: a funding stream for the installation of solar systems on the roofs of houses or sheds, and the DI MILANO

Pacchetto Ecologia, a loan for investments in energy efficiency. CREDITO


Creval Energia Pulita, a floating-rate loan - to private individuals - for the purchase of photovoltaic systems, and other initiatives related to investment in environmental protection and development of alternative and renewable energies.

With its 2161 MW of installed capacity from renewable sources (hydro, wind, photovoltaic and biomass) the company saves 3.8 Mton of CO2 emissions each year. Edison offers several options to help its clients avoid GHG emissions, such as ZeroE People, the first available package of renewable energy certified by RECS International (Renewable Energy Certificate System).


In 2010 Enel introduced “All-included Green Energy” offering electricity produced by plants that exploit renewable sources. CO2 emissions are offset by a corresponding acquisition and subsequent cancellation of VERs (Verified Emissions Reductions)., in 2010, installed more than 160 MW of photovoltaic systems and the amount of emissions saved between 2006 and 2010 is estimated at 175,000 tons of CO2. The Group’s portfolio contains a total of 105 CDM projects it is directly participating in.


Eni’s gas & power division provides technical support to customers, helping them increase their energy efficiency. Such projects were able to make a saving of 21,857 toe in total, thus avoiding 64,895 tCO2. Furthermore, Eni contributes to increasing energy efficiency in the transport sector thanks to its BLU line of fuels.

Between 2000 and 2010, average emissions in metric tonnes per vehicle sold by Fiat Group Automobiles (FGA) in Europe fell by 20%. START&STOP SYSTEM: a further environmental benefit comes from the Start&Stop system developed by FGA Engineering & Design in collaboration with Fiat Powertrain and Magneti Marelli. The system offers a reduction of around 10% in fuel consumption and emissions in congested conditions, or 3.5% based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).


Alenia Aeronautica and Alenia Aermacchi are researching an “all electric aircraft” and are investigating fuel cell technology. Ansaldo Energia is investigating carbon capture technologies and the possibility of using Molten carbonate fuel cells as second generation technologies, as well as opportunities in the field of renewables. Ansaldo Breda is working on developing software to simulate trains’ behavior in different conditions.

during 2010 we supported over 1,160 firms with loans of 561 million Euros. Furthermore, in 2010 the Bank granted loans of almost 220 million Euros to finance the construction of large renewable power plants.
