Producing energy with the lowest carbon footprint is the challenge that every energy company is facing today and it’s a challenge that we are taking up at Eni. To meet it, we have chosen to invest in something that we do well: scientific and technological research.
In 2019 total R&S costs were 194 million euros, of which 102.4 million euros was spent on the path of decarbonization and the circular economy. There are currently 1,000 Eni people and more than 50 pilot plants working on R&D, and ongoing collaborations in the field with over 70 universities and research centres. Our commitment to decarbonization and the energy transition also takes the form of partnerships, which we have formed with the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI), Commonwealth Fusion Systems LLC (CFS), Divertor Tokamak Test (DTT) and top universities and research institutions like ENEA, CNR and MIT.
