“The Apulia Region is the leader in Italy for renewable energies, not only for the production of wind and photovoltaic energy, for which it’s at the top of the ranking of the Italian regions, but also for the know-how acquired: today Apulia produces 25.4% of its own energy from renewable sources.
Thanks to this important experience, we are here at Expo Astana 2017, to show how smart technologies can be combined with energy”, says Loredana Capone, Regional Minister for Economic Development of Apulia Region, “After the regional boost for renewable energy, today we focus on energy savings through the tools provided by technological innovation. Indeed, Apulia produces twice as much energy as it needs, from all kind of sources; that’s why we don’t need to produce more than we already do, but we need to save. Avoiding waste is our new goal and it’s also the reason why we are focusing on building efficiency”
