Energy transition and sustainability.  The protocol between Sport and Health and the Energy Services Manager was signed today

An institutional collaboration for promote the energy transition in the sports sector. This is the objective of the memorandum of understanding signed today at the Foro Italico tennis club in Rome, in the presence of the Minister for Sport and Youth, Andrea Abodi, between Sport and Health and the Energy Services Manager – GSE SpA, a company of the Ministry of Economy which promotes sustainable development in Italy.

The agreement aims, through collaboration between the two companies, to contribute to the development and promotion of renewable sources, energy efficiency and self-consumption configurations in the sports sector, accelerating investments for the energy transition and reducing consumption and environmental impacts of sports facilities.

“This signature helps the sports system – declared the Minister for Sport and Youth, Andrea Abodibecause it makes us understand that we need to adapt to environmentally friendly policies that go beyond the energy bill. This protocol – added Abodi – it starts from Caivano and has an enormous perspective. We must establish a pact between sport and the environment, often declared, but not yet implemented. If today 80% of systems are energy inefficient, it means that we have not managed to transform words into actions. We are energetically unproductive, but I believe this agreement marks a turning point.”

“Sport is a powerful lever for bringing together energy redevelopment projects and social and inclusion benefits – declared the CEO of the GSE Vinicio Vigilante – Proof of this is the recovery of the Caivano sports centre, in which the joint action of the GSE and Sport and Health, together with the Extraordinary Government Commissioner, Fabio Ciciliano, allowed a degraded area to become an exemplary case and a model replicable for the improvement of sports facilities in the country”.
Sports centers can also become central for the creation of renewable energy communities – so the President of the GSE, Paolo Arrigoni – not only as a virtuous model of energy sharing but also as a place of aggregation and integration especially among young people”.

“This agreement – explained the President of Sport and Health, Marco Mezzaromamarks the concrete start of the energy transition in the sports sector, starting from the plant engineering which we know well how old it is and how much it needs interventions. It also represents the continuation of a relationship already started with the GSE and which sees us together already in Caivano where we have achieved important savings which will be reinvested in the management of the former Delphinia centre”.
“With the GSE we look to the future – added the CEO of Sport and Health, Diego Nepi Molineris -. Caivano will be a project with which the “Illumina” project will begin, where circular economy and sustainability are fundamental aspects. The vision of creating a 360-degree energy system must represent the concept of doing something more and ensuring that our model is replicable in the country and that sport is a positive principle to be able to do so.”

The protocol provides for the launch of tools suitable for the implementation of various projects, including the energy redevelopment of the Olympic Stadium in Rome, the valorisation of the Sport and Health real estate assets, the promotion of sustainable mobility and the development of models for the co-financing of interventions on public and private plants, integrating PNRR funds with GSE incentives.

Training and information events dedicated to public administrations, sports federations, managers of public and private sports facilities and sector companies will also be organised, in particular on the opportunities arising from the incentive mechanisms managed by the GSE.
