The metropolitan City of Torino, based on the experience gained as Province of Torino over the years, plays the role of Energy Observatory collecting data from major distributors and energy producers operating in the metropolitan area, as well as getting information from official statistical sources. Every two years the Observatory publishes a Report updating the provincial energy balance and the balance of greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of energy.
