Having reached its nineteenth edition, the initiative aims to raise awareness about the good practices citizens can adopt daily to rationalise energy consumption.
Once again in 2023, the FS Italiane Group will adhere to M'illumino di meno, the National Day of Energy Saving and Sustainable Lifestyles that Rai Radio2 organises with Caterpillar to spread the culture of environmental sustainability and resource saving.
For the event, today, February 16th, the lighted "Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane" sign on the Rome headquarters in Villa Patrizi will be switched off from 6 PM to midnight. A symbolic gesture that testifies to the Group’s daily commitment to optimising energy consumption.
A gesture that adds to the many activities implemented by the FS Group as part of the renewable energy self-production program: from photovoltaic panels on station and garage roofs, to train and building energy efficiency improvements, up to the creation of plans for sustainable zero-emission mobility. The goal is to achieve 2 GW of new capacity from green sources to meet 40% of its energy needs.
The renewable energy generation program will also be accompanied by the coordination and development of innovative solutions that will range from the implementation of energy storage infrastructures, to the preparation of small-sized smart electricity grids on which to distribute the renewable energy produced.
An important step forward, for FS, which will allow the Group to weigh less on the country's foreign supply sources and to play an active role in the ecological transition challenge.
