Local communities

In the medium term, the creation of value for shareholders and the quality of the electricity service are linked to development of the grid and of interconnection relations with other countries.

The theme of acceptance by local communities is therefore a significant one:besides relationships with Institutions, which are already based on prior identification of agreed solutions, increasing the degree of acceptance of electricity infrastructures by the communities involved is an absolutely primary objective, as can also be seen from the disputes described in the present report. Terna has begun an analysis of the most effective ways of presenting its development projects. With respect to these objectives, important roles are played by communication and involvement, as well as by the local Institutions and associations representing civil society on the territorial scale.
