Where we are developing latest-generation technologies for latest-generation renewables and environmental protection.
HPC5: powerful research accelerator for zero-carbon energy.
With Turin Polytechnic we have opened a research laboratory to exploit the energy of the sea: with ISWEC we produce electricity from wave motion, with the possibility of powering offshore plants.
We are developing a technology to generate solar energy from an extremely thin film, harnessing the properties of photoactive polymers.
We have invented special transparent sheets that capture light at low intensity and concentrate this along the edges, where it is transformed into electricity.
We have improved the performance of concentrated solar power plants to make them more efficient, economical and versatile.
This is the story of Alessandra, the lab technician who won the Innovators Under 35 award from MIT Technology Review magazine.
Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs): smart windows to you. Eni's research centre in Novara has reinvented photovoltaic solar power, giving birth to a new technology that creates energy.
In Ravenna’s offshore is the world's first hybrid system for collecting solar and wave energy and even storing it.
This 27-year-old technician and researcher has just won the Boston MIT Technology Review prize for young innovators under 35. Meet Angelo Poletto.
From France to Italy, all about new concentration plants.
OPV solar panels and the development of solar energy in Europe.
Italy's role in the development of new technologies to produce energy efficiently from water.
The CSP technology, one of the many solutions developed by Eni for its decarbonization strategy, can now count on an innovative thermal energy storage system.
Molecular modeling and supercomputers, the constant work of Eni researchers to improve the technology of Organic PhotoVoltaics (OPV) and Luminescent Solar Concentrators (LSC).
The energy coming from the sea is still a huge potential. Eni's challenge is to exploit this capacity and hence, expand the field of renewables.
2008 saw the first edition of the Eni Award. In 12 years, 78 researchers from five continents have been awarded, and the story goes on.
