the energy transmission system?
High voltage electricity transmission is Terna's main task that, by developing the grid, benefits the local community and the entire system.Transmitting energy means transporting the produced electricity directly to where it will be used.
The task of transmitting electricity in Italy is undertaken by Terna through a complex and structured system made up of various elements, the most important of which are: the EHV (extra-high voltage) transformers that receive and transform the energy produced by the national electrical power stations (or by the border stations for imported energy); the EHV and HV (high voltage) electricity lines that transport energy; and, lastly, the transforming stations that transform AT to low and medium voltage give the energy to distribution companies, which bring electricity to houses and factories through sales companies. In total Terna has 431 transforming and sorting stations. This complex system of machines needs to be coordinated and managed by dispatching specialists.
