Technologies for evolving renewables

Renewable sources are a key component of long-term carbon neutrality.

At the Research Centre for Renewable Energy and the Environment in Novara we develop new technologies to improve them.


The Briefing: smart living

Decarbonization is for the planet health, the ultimate goal. We are going to reveal some solutions, with the purpose of reducing the impact that metropolises and construction have on the environment.
