Autonomous and secure

In the face of power outages in the Upper Puster Valley, the South Tyrol Energy Association stresses the advantages of a decentralised and indigenous energy supply. It is no coincidence that, despite the bad weather, the distribution of electricity works particularly well in areas where small and medium-sized distributors operate.

The South Tyrol Energy Association therefore supports the proposal to transfer electricity distribution in Upper Puster Valley to a distribution co-operative and to run it locally. Autonomy of distribution in South Tyrol is simply following the trend: numerous municipalities in South Tyrol have already opted for the “re-municipalisation” of electricity distribution. The networks now managed by Selnet should therefore be transferred as quickly as possible, following a fair process, to these municipalities.

A corresponding concept of regional importance was presented by the South Tyrol Energy Association in spring 2013. A key
element of this concept is a co-operative restructuring of distribution services. Locally generated power could then be developed into a quality brand from the “Green Region” of South Tyrol.
