Assignment

Terna SpA, the Italian national transmission electric grid operator, undertook a multi annual development plan aiming at optimising and upgrading the Italian electrical network.

Our Role

Golder supported Terna by providing automated GIS applications to conduct the identification of potential corridors and by developing the Strategic Environmental Assessment for the development plan. The GIS-based spatial process was instrumental in helping TERNA evaluate the sustainability of the plan (as reflected by technical, social, ecological and economic criteria). The results of the process have been published on the Web GIS site developed by Golder: http://portalevas.terna.it.

The Web GIS site has been realised to facilitate the consultation of the development of the national electric network and the dialogue with authorities and other stakeholders.
