How we contribute to the security of supply

We help guarantee energy supply through the global geographical diversification of our sources

In a constantly changing global socio-economic context, we work to ensure a continuous supply of energy to households and companies, while keeping our GHG emission reduction commitments thanks to a network of alliances we have established with producer countries and collaboration agreements with international partners.

 

Our global portfolio of projects has a clear objective: the geographical diversification of sources. It is a strategy that helps us to ensure uninterrupted and secure energy supplies for Italy and Europe and to achieve another important goal: the decarbonization of the energy mix. 

 

By promoting natural gas as a bridge energy source to support the transition, at the same time, it is possible to explore the opportunities offered by renewables, from solar (photovoltaic and thermal) to wind energy, from marine energy to biofuels up to biogas and biomethane.

 

More energy sources and technologies for our energy mix

From natural gas to renewables, from bioenergy to hydrogen: energy diversification is crucial to achieve the Net Zero goal.

Italy’s four natural gas ports

Regasifiers, the facilities receiving shipments of liquefied natural gas (LNG) by sea and converting it into gas that can be injected into the network, play a key role in facilitating the geographical diversification of energy sources. They therefore make an important contribution to the security of energy supply. As far as the Italian territory is concerned, LNG is transported by sea to four different LNG regasification facilities:

  • the Adriatic LNG Terminal, located off the coast near Porto Viro in the province of Rovigo, is a true artificial island (GBS, Gravity Based Structure) that has been in operation since 2009
  • the Offshore LNG Toscana (OLT) plant, a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) located off the coast between Livorno and Pisa, in operation since 2013
  • the Golar Tundra LNG plant, a FSRU moored at the port of Piombinoin operation since mid-2023
  • the onshore plant along the Ligurian coast in Panigaglia in the province of La Spezia, the first facility of this kind built in Italy, in operation since the early 1970s.

 

The international agreements for the supply of natural gas

To help secure energy supplies in a complex international context, we have expanded our portfolio of natural gas projects.
