We are investing in high-growth start-ups with the most disruptive technologies.
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.
Magnetic confinement fusion
The fusion of two hydrogen nuclei releases an enormous amount of energy with zero impact. Creating it artificially is challenging, but it could provide limitless, clean fusion energy to help combat climate change.
Our investments in magnetic confinement fusion
Eni Next has been a shareholder of CFS since 2018 as part of a wide program aimed to make the fusion real.
We are deeply interested in new technologies able to store renewable energy production peaks and redistribute it to the grid.
Our investments in energy storage
Low cost, safe and reliable: these are the batteries which we are looking for, either for residential and grid usages.
Our investments in hydrogen
Blue, green, turquoise, yellow, and pink hydrogen: we intend to paint this section with all the low-carbon shades.
Our investments in quantum computing
Neutral atom technology is the pathway to enable massive computations for energy transition.
We are currently focusing on technologies in the following areas:
Any technology that captures, uses and stores carbon dioxide.
Green energy even when sun isn’t shining, or wind isn’t blowing.
Low-impact modes of transportation that are flexible and affordable.
Innovative solutions to recycle waste into fuels and useful products.
Creating, using, repairing forests, for human and environment benefit.
Smart machines capable of performing tasks efficiently and profitably.
Technologies for a low carbon-intensive and sustainable energy system.
Advanced technologies for detecting emissions, water and soil characterization, and remediation.
