2i Rete Gas deals with the distribution of natural gas for civil and industrial uses. The Group is one of the main operators in the sector and, at the end of 2019, managed a total of 2,132 concessions across the country and 66 thousand kilometres of network, which it used to distribute natural and LPG gas to over 4.3 million end users served by the network.
Our business is the result of an acquisition process that, over time, has enabled the integration and consolidation of a number of industry operators and, consequently, guarantees the constant improvement of service quality, compliance with the best safety standards, a high degree of technological innovation and cost-effective management. In this regard, we are proud to mention the acquisition and subsequent incorporation of the Enel distributions networks, those of the German group E.ON, the French group Engie, and in 2018, the Spanish group Gas Natural Fenosa, a transaction that led to the inclusion of 2i Rete Gas Impianti S.p.A. (formerly Nedgia S.p.A.) in the scope of 2i Rete Gas S.p.A., through which the Group strengthened its presence in central and southern Italy. The integration of 2i Rete Gas Impianti S.p.A. by the Group concluded with the merger by incorporation into the parent company 2i Rete Gas S.p.A. on 1 October 2019.
More recently, on 30 April 2020, 2i Rete Gas S.p.A. also completed the acquisition, from BN Investimenti S.p.A. of Montelungo Gas S.r.l., Maierà Gas S.r.l. and Cometam Gas S.r.l merged by incorporation on 1 October 2020 into the parent company and only shareholder 2i Rete Gas S.p.A.. Lately on 15 September 2020 2i Rete Gas S.p.A. acquired 100% of the share capital in Powergas Distribuzione S.p.A., merged by incorporation on 1 January 2021 into the parent company and only shareholder 2i Rete Gas S.p.A..
