Energie tradizionali e rinnovabili: proposte di interventi terminologici

As public concern over renewable energy sources grows, there is a large amount of publications which focus on the issue, ranging from scientific discussions to institutional communication and mass media coverage of the issue itself. The different needs of this array of communicative situations are met by variations in terminology. This study investigates the
terminology used by some electricity and gas companies and analyses their purposes of clarifying their public communications, bothfor experts in the field and for the general public. Our inquiry is focused on on-line glossaries and reports in order to examine the
popularisation of technical terminology in this field.
