    In line with the global strategy launched by Michelin to achieve a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions in 2030 compared to 2010 with the important goal of Zero emissions by 2050, Edison and Michelin Italiana have signed a multi-year agreement for efficiency energy, environmental sustainability and the reduction of the carbon footprint of the Michelin plant in Cuneo.
    Thanks to the construction of plants for the production of energy with low environmental impact and energy from renewable sources, the Cuneo plant – which is Michelin’s largest production site in Western Europe with an installed production capacity of 13 million tires for cars worldwide year – will be able to cover 97% of the plant’s needs with green energy.
    “We are very pleased to announce this collaboration with Michelin Italiana which has chosen Edison as a partner for the sustainability of its production in Italy – declared Giovanni Brianza, Edison’s executive vice president of energy and environmental services on the occasion of the signing of the agreement – It is a concrete example of how we accompany our partners in an energy consumption optimization process totally tailored to their specific needs “.
    Brianza also recalled that the one for the Cuneo plant is “a complex project that has been made possible thanks to the teamwork and skills that Edison has made available to Michelin to jointly achieve important objectives of efficiency and environmental sustainability”.
    The initiative involves Edison’s construction and installation of a new high-efficiency trigeneration plant capable of simultaneously producing electricity, steam and water for heating and cooling. Photovoltaic systems will also be built which will be installed on the canopies of car parks and in other available areas, as well as an integrated system consisting of boilers for the supply of the steam necessary for the production of tires, which also includes the use of woody biomass with a short chain.
    Through the integration of these solutions and systems, from 2023 the Cuneo plant will have 16% of the energy available from renewable sources, corresponding to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 18,000 tons per year.
    This percentage will be able to reach 100% thanks to the flexibility of the plants and the progressive use of alternative fuels and renewable sources.
    “This agreement – commented Simone Miatton, CEO of Michelin Italiana – represents an important progress towards our ambitious sustainability goals. The Cuneo plant, due to its size and strategic importance within the Michelin Group, it pursues environmental sustainability on a daily basis also through agreements with first-level partners such as the one signed “.
    The contact – which has a duration of 15 years – will also make it possible, thanks to Edison’s specific skills, to progressively achieve challenging objectives in terms of energy efficiency of the plant, with further benefits in terms of both environmental impact and energy expenditure.
    The plant is designed to be able to implement further highly innovative and flexible solutions that involve the use of biomethane and hydrogen as green fuels. Edison will also supply the Cuneo plant, through the national transmission grid, with electricity produced and certified from renewable sources to supplement on-site self-production.
