With the Power Business Unit in GLP, Eni ensures the management and development of operational activities, participation in electricity markets and commercial activities on B2B markets.
Within the Power Business Unit, Enipower SpA, which is 100% controlled by Eni, operates in the thermoelectric power generation sector.
Enipower was founded in November 1999 with the acquisition of old conventional power plants from EniChem and Agip Petroli. Over the years, Enipower enacted an investment plan that gradually replaced the conventional installations powered by fuel oil with modern combined cycle plants, which guarantee elevated environmental standards. Today, either directly or through its subsidiaries (Enipower Mantova SpA and Sef Srl), the company owns:
This pool of plants has a combined capacity of over 5 GW, which puts the company in second place among electricity producers in the nation, and first among technological steam producers. The power plants also provide water for industrial use and compressed air for the other industries located on site.
Enipower generates electricity and thermal energy through power plants fuelled by natural gas, the fossil fuel with the lowest environmental impact. The generation pool boasts one of the lowest emission factors in the Italian thermoelectric power sector, hovering close to the national average, including from renewable sources. The installations in Brindisi and Ferrara Erbognone also use gas obtained from petrochemical plants and Syngas, thereby taking advantage of the energy deriving from available materials.
The decision to adopt district heating technology powered by large natural gas cogeneration plants has resulted in switching off numerous less efficient household boilers, guaranteeing benefits for the environment in terms of air quality and reduced CO2 emissions. The district heating service is supplied by two installations:
Metanopoli is the "methane city" that Enrico Mattei conceived for Eni employees. As early as 1955, the year when the first Office Building and connected residential area were designed, Mattei intended the complex to be energetically self-sufficient through the construction of a thermal power plant fuelled by natural gas. This sustainable model was copied and applied to the further expansions as well. Continuing this virtuous path, Enipower extended its ideal coverage to the host city, generating and distributing electricity and thermal energy through a dedicated and continuously expanding network to Eni's office buildings as well as schools, daycare centres, houses and hospital buildings in San Donato Milanese.
