The development of renewable energy in the countries where Eni operates is a key element in the company’s strategy of evolving the business model towards a low carbon scenario.
In 2015, we created the new Energy Solutions department, reporting directly to the chief executive. The department has the mission of supporting and integrating traditional energy sources with the production of energy from renewable sources, through profit-making projects on an industrial scale. In 2016, we identified and launched projects for energy generation from renewable resources at our plants in Italy and in countries with great potential in which we operate in Africa and Asia, with the aim of improving our energy efficiency and contributing to ensuring access to energy.
In Italy, the company has launched the “Progetto Italia” project, which foresees the construction of mainly photovoltaic plants, in proprietary industrial areas that are available for use and of low interest for other business activities. Eni has identified 14 projects with a total capacity of about 220 MW, to be installed by 2022. Outside of Italy, development projects have been identified in countries of strategic interest in which Eni already operates (particularly in Africa and Asia), with the aim of increasing our energy efficiency, the sustainability of our consumption, and improving access to energy for local people through a more sustainable energy mix. A number of cooperation agreements have also been finalized with Ghana, Algeria and Tunisia in order to strengthen Eni’s historic presence in those territories and to expand the company’s sphere of activities.
Development of projects from renewables sources (Source Eni For 2016)
A project for the development of innovative Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) solutions that can reduce investment costs and for solar thermal energy production. In collaboration with MIT, a low-cost, easy-to-implement and assemble solar parabolic collector has been developed, for the production in the countries where they will be installed and to stimulate local employment and development. The first full-scale prototype was built, with the Politecnico di Milano, during the year and the tests carried out confirmed the collector’s originality and functionality.
Flexible polymer cells and solar concentration are just some of the applications of our research in the renewable energy sector.
