Compared to the previous Plan, we have forecast a higher commitment in terms of 7-years cumulative investments, of about 500 million euro. We will invest 4.5 billion euro, compared to the 4-billion investments previously planned. Furthermore, Italgas will invest 1.9 billion euro in tenders. These investments represent our growth engine, which will lead us to achieve a RAB over 10 billion in 2025.
Organic investments focus on continuous network development, upgrading and maintenance, for approximately 2 billion euro, and the development of Sardinia’s methanization, for roughly 0.5 billion euro. Moreover, with an amount close to one billion, organic investments focus on the replacement of traditional meters with the digital devices, and on the network and processes digitization - an effort through which we intend to transform Italgas assets, processes and personnel.
The use of big data is of great help also in capital allocation. For example, today on the network we do not simply intervene to replace old or fully amortized pipes, but we give priority to investments that can guarantee a real improvement in security and service quality.
Alongside this effort
