Federesco and the Federazione dei Distretti Italiani (Italian District Federation) have signed an agreement with the primary aim of developing energy efficiency and distributed generation within the various industrial and production districts of Italy. Both parties are firmly convinced that industrial production can improve, in terms of costs and quality, if measures for reducing environmental impacts and emission of climate-altering gases are introduced. For these reasons, Federesco and the Italian production districts are collaborating to reduce energy consumption and to implement distributed energy generation projects in the industrial districts.
