Energy transition: Eni’s transformation also depends on open innovation

Eni Next is contributing to Eni’s transformation through investments in startups which are developing technologies for producing energy with low carbon footprint: renewable energies, energy storage, and magnetic fusion are some of the focus areas. Eni Next is also engaged in evaluating and investing in startups which aim at improve the efficiency of Eni’s operations and to develop digital solutions.

Investment verticals align with Eni corporate strategy towards energy transition:

The different verticals, all within transition journey, are reflecting Eni’s business organization and foresee three main areas:

New Energy & Decarbonized Solutions

New Energy and decarbonized solutions are aiming at emission reduction initiatives conducted within Natural Resources.

Renewables, Mobility and Low Carbon Products

Renewables, Mobility and Low carbon products are targeting activities with a lower carbon footprint deployed by Energy Evolution.

Enabling Solutions

Enabling Solutions are transversal activities to NR & EE as well as to Plenitude.

Other technologies in pipeline

We are also focusing on technologies in the following areas:


Fugitive Methane emission and flare reduction

Monitoring the methane emission is critical to verify and then lower the GHG impact of upstream, midstream and downstream assets. Focus is given to the technologies that can precisely detect and quantify the emissions on a “bottom up” approach.


Next-gen bio feedstocks

Focus of this vertical is to identify technologies across the biogenic carbon value chain including sourcing, processing and upgrading with priority on lignocellulosic biomass conversion.
