Italy is undergoing a major process of energy transition that sees it heavily involved in pursuing ambitious decarbonization targets within a European continent that is already leading the world in the fight against climate change. Italy’s decarbonization strategy is based on a major commitment to energy efficiency and investment in renewables.
Strengthening our traditional business while building new ones, such as renewables, and supporting the circular economy are vital to a clear, low-carbon strategy that will benefit the whole country.
The country in which we started is where we invest the most
We are always working to develop cutting-edge technologies, in line with the goals of the Italian National Energy and Climate Plan. We pursue an ambitious transformation strategy, based on efficiency, integration, the use of new technologies, and the development of energy from renewable sources. We began in 2014, by converting the refinery in Venice into the world's first bio-refinery, followed by the Gela bio-refinery in 2019: thanks to a project run by Eni Rewind, in the near future both will be able to produce bio-oil from organic waste.
Starting in 2016 we launched a major project for the deployment of photovoltaics with zero land consumption, using reclaimed former industrial areas; and last but not least, in 2019, with our partners CDP, Terna and Fincantieri, we launched a project to build wave energy power stations on an industrial scale. All this is the result of the research that we carry out in our laboratories, also in partnership with the most important universities and research centres in the country, which testifies to the strategic value that Italy has in our development plans.
We’re mobilising expertise, experience and tools to aid our home country and market. We’re convinced of the importance of pooling our efforts and acting together to face this challenge.#togetherwerise

Decarbonization and the circular economy
To ensure long-term sustainability of a low-carbon future, we are on a path towards decarbonization. It is one of the pillars on which our business model is based and supports an energy model in which everyone has access to innovative and clean mixes of energy. The urgent need to protect the environment is a great challenge but also an opportunity to save the planet while building a new, more inclusive economy. This requires our commitment and focus. We need to change mindsets and business models, which can be achieved by reducing waste.
We plan to develop renewable energy plants in Italy near our sites in order to supply them or put energy on the grid.
Digital transformation plan
Digital transformation is a process that affects our company across the board. It improves safety, ensures asset integrity, promotes the generation of skills, increases energy and operational efficiency and drives business opportunities.
Italy is at the heart of this journey, from project conception to building the first digital lighthouse. We are committed to developing technologies in many areas, from artificial intelligence to blockchain, virtual reality, augmented reality, advanced robotics, the Internet of Things and sensors.
Eni IT and the Green Data Center
The Green Data Center opened in Italy in 2013 and hosts all Eni’s application systems, processing infrastructure and central telecommunications systems. It is a highly technological plant built to international standards of excellence.
It provides IT services to management, industrial and commercial departments and all our sites, integrating with 20 local data rooms distributed throughout Italy, and providing services in more than 73 countries.
