The most substantial changes compared to the previous year are described below:

"Waste transportation, disposal and collection services": the increase can be attributed to more waste management services provided in some Municipalities. This increase in costs was however followed by an increase in revenues which were included in the tariff (TIA).

"Energy transport and storage": the increase is attributable to higher volumes of electricity sold on third party grids.

"Fees paid to local authorities": the reduction compared to the previous year is mainly due to the lower fees paid to:

  • Con.Ami  for the gas service amounting to Euro 934 thousand
  • Municipality of Bologna for fees regarding the sewage service totalling Euro 2,384 thousand.

"Technical services": the considerable increase over the previous year is mainly due to a different classification of costs, again in connection with application of the IFRIC 12.

"IT and CED services": the Euro 8,189 thousand increase is mainly due to a restatement of costs for telephony to other operators services (these costs in 2009 were classified among the "rents and leases payables").
