A digital platform to guide energy transition

Client benefit

Communication - Present the company's role in the field of decarbonization and renewable energy.

Project objective

Provide access to environmental data and raise public and stakeholder awareness of the international decarbonization process.

Project results

Terna consolidated its role as leader of the energy transition thanks to the interactive dashboard Terna4Green, which allows daily monitoring of Italy's progress towards international decarbonization goals.

Project background

As the electricity transmission market leader, Terna plays a key role in the energy transformation process that underpins decarbonization. The national power grid, which consists of more than 70,000 high-voltage lines, is the main enabling factor for achieving international targets.

Terna4Green is the first dashboard dedicated to the relationship between electricity production data and CO2 emissions. It attests the leading role of the company and at the same time monitors the energy transition process in Italy.

Explore the project

The first interactive dashboard that allows a flexible and intuitive exploration of data on the energy transition in Italy.

A public and mobile-friendly dashboard

As the operator of the entire national electricity grid, Terna produces and collects massive amounts of data on a daily basis. In addition to exploiting the potential of this data to improve decision-making processes and implement new business strategies, the company felt the need to put it at the service of the community and stakeholders. 

This is how Terna4Green was born: a public, free and mobile-friendly dashboard.

CO2 Savings

After an introduction that contextualizes the project, it is possible to access two different visualizations. The first is called ‘CO2 Savings’ and shows the tons of carbon dioxide saved at each hour of the day thanks to the production of renewable energy from zero emission sources. In the section on the left, individual sources can be selected to observe their impact compared to the total.

CO2 Emissions

Switching to the ‘CO2 Emissions’ view, it is possible to visualize the tons of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere as a result of thermoelectric production, divided according to the main fuel classes. The filters on the left allow the users to identify the types of fuel with the highest emissions and their location in the Italian market areas.

TernaCO2 Real-time data

Real-time data

Terna4Green makes it possible to carry out real-time analysis. Thanks to the constant update, users can visualize hour-by-hour data, using a filter to select the specific day and time range they want to examine, while an overlay graph makes it possible to view the daily trend at a glance.

TernaCO2 Weather variables

Weather variables and Market Zones

On the right hand side of the platform there is a meteorological selector, which allows users to observe the correlation between emission savings and individual atmospheric factors: temperature, rain, solar radiation, wind and snow. In addition, the division of the territory by market zones can be used to observe specific values.

A look to the past

The ‘Historical and Comparison’ dashboard aggregates the data on a daily, monthly or yearly basis, visualizing its trend with a line chart, or comparing it through a stacked bar chart. In addition, the bubble chart at the bottom of the dashboard allows a more precise visualization of the data, making navigation extremely flexible and intuitive.
