Eni’s evolution entails achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the targets set out in the Paris Agreement on climate change. Eni has planned a decarbonisation pathway that will reduce emissions generated throughout the life cycle of products. To do this, we rely on synergy between all available technologies. As confirmed in the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, Eni is close to bringing together bio-refining, service stations and car sharing in a new entity dedicated to sustainable mobility. All our initiatives in this sector, both in terms of research and development and in terms of agreements and partnerships with other operators, form an increasingly integrated mix of solutions. These range from biofuels produced also from scrap and waste, to biomethane, from short and long-term electric car sharing, to hydrogen and electric charging points. We believe that a combined approach to sustainable mobility based on innovative solutions is able to help in achieving the 2050 net zero emissions target and provide Eni's customers with a variety of fully decarbonised products and services.
We are committed to making the mobility of today and tomorrow increasingly sustainable through proprietary technology and strategic agreements.
Biofuels from castor oil, croton nuts and cotton. This is the future of Eni's biorefining system.
Our solutions for electric mobility
When it comes to e-mobility, Eni boasts comprehensive solutions. In urban centres where the Enjoy car sharing service is available, Eni is expanding its fleet with the introduction of XEV YOYO electric vehicles, starting with Turin, Bologna, Florence and Milan. In addition, with Plenitude Eni is the second largest operator in the field of electric mobility in Italy. Plenitude has an extensive network of over 9,000 charging points throughout the country and a goal to expand the network to over 30,000 charging points by 2025.
In particular, Eni Live Stations are being transformed into “mobility points” offering alternative energy carriers and services, including a network of Plenitude HPC (High Power Charger) posts available to customers, and thus offer the best use of the refuelling “pit stop”. This network is being progressively expanded in Italy and Europe: Eni plans to have HPC posts in 1,000 service stations in Italy and 500 overseas (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Spain) by 2025.
Collaboration is a fundamental value for Eni. Agreements with companies and operators in the transport sector have led to some unique solutions. For an increasingly sustainable and circular mobility.
Enjoy, Eni’s car sharing service
In major Italian cities, such as Milan, Turin, Rome, Bologna and Florence, Eni's car sharing service, Enjoy, is available. It is a car and cargo-van rental service that can be booked with a simple app. The service is safe and easy to use and has become a popular and valued alternative mobility solution to the use of private vehicles, with benefits on traffic reduction and quality of life for those living and travelling in cities for work and beyond.
Since 2014, Eni produces biofuel by transforming vegetable oils and biomass waste into HVO (hydrogenated vegetable oil), which is added to diesel oil to create Eni Diesel +, Eni's premium fuel. HVO biofuel, of which Eni is the only producer in Italy, can also be used in 100% pure form to further accelerate the reduction of CO₂ emissions in the transport sector: it is already in use in some contexts, such as ground vehicles at airports and by some companies in the logistics sector and tests are being carried out on buses, trucks and trains with 100% HVO, which are yielding excellent results.
Thanks to the development of proprietary technologies, Eni has completely transformed the refineries in Venice and Gela, where raw biomaterials are now processed: plant-based oils, animal fats, used cooking oils or algae extracts, from which biofuels are obtained. Since March 2021, we have signed agreements with a number of African countries for the development of sustainable oil crops, in particular castor, the launch of targeted agricultural projects and the collection of agricultural waste and residues, for a range of initiatives that do not compete with food production.
In Congo and particularly in Kenya, projects for vertical integration in bio-refining are already at an advanced stage. At the beginning of October 2022, the first cargo of vegetable oil for bio-refining produced by Eni in Kenya left the port of Mombasa bound for the Gela bio-refinery.
We are also committed to the development of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation (SAFs) for the decarbonisation of air transport.
One of the main challenges for the energy sector is contribute to ensuring access to energy for all in an efficient and sustainable way.
The energy transition is a technological challenge.
Research applied to the decarbonization of transport results in new forms of more sustainable energy.
Towards low-emission mobility
Methane is one of the most technologically mature of the alternative fuels. It is readily available thanks to a distribution network of around 1,500 sales points and a consolidated market in Italy. By strengthening its distribution network, Eni is fostering the spread of mobility with both compressed CNG for cars, and liquid LNG for HGVs. In addition, Eni has already started supplying bio-methane on its network thanks to agreements with the Italian Energy Services Operator (GSE) and some producers and has laid the foundations to become the leading producer of bio-methane in Italy. With the acquisition of FRI-EL Biogas Holding, renamed EniBioCh4in, that owns 21 plants for the generation of electricity from biogas, agricultural biomass and livestock waste, and a plant for the treatment of FORSU, the organic fraction of urban solid waste: we plan to feed more than 50 million cubic metres per year into the national gas grid, thus becoming the leading producer of bio-methane in Italy.
The new Eni Live Station: from service station to “mobility point”
Eni transforms its Eni Stations into Eni Live Stations, spaces completely dedicated to mobility, people and the car, with services that can usually be managed with a simple click on the Eni Live App. Our stations offer services ranging from long-distance to urban mobility, including those designed to facilitate even the shortest of journeys, with hire car pick-up points for you to continue your onward journey. Today, stations have a new integrated role, combining the use of traditional fuels with new forms of alternative energy. At Eni Live Stations you can take advantage of updated Enjoy services, Eni Parking areas and Eni Charge points to charge your electric car, with fast and ultrafast charging.
