The claim of Lombardy Region is "LOMBARDY. CREATIVE ENERGY". Lombardy is indeed a territory in which Energy has always played a leading role.

Its geographic structure, rich in mountains and lakes, and its propensity to avant-garde and innovation, have made Lombardy to be the first energy producer in Italy. Talent, creativity and the search for alternative, clean and renewable energies have allowed the development of technologies, aimed at improving industrial, civil and transport energy efficiency. This energy development has also been achieved through the study and research of products to be realized with sustainable, renewable and recyclable technologies.
