In 2009, WWF Italy and Terna signed a three-year cooperation agreement focused on a more sustainable development of the Italian grid.
A working group was established for a continuous dialogue on:
WWF Italy and Terna have been working together on projects within three of WWF’s protected areas. Projects cover various topics, e.g. the installation of mitigation measures to reduce the impact on birdlife by putting up anti-collision spirals on power-lines and by placing nesting boxes on pylons. The joint project also includes the environmental education and promotion of these measures taken. Terna and WWF produced information materials on the projects and informed the public by a travelling exhibition.
Terna regularly sends updates on a shared list of grid expansion projects to the national offices of WWF Italy. This office then forwards the information to their local member organisations. Resulting questions from WWF local bodies or requests to talk to Terna are addressed and organised via the national offices.
