The new “Energy Roadmap 2050” of the EU Commission reaffirms the role of smart grids in developing a secure, competitive and low-carbon energy sector
Russia is planning huge investments in energy infrastructure over the next few decades, offering significant opportunities also to Western companies
Enel’s commitment to increase automation system security and plant remote control to prevent computer attacks
Smart grids will allow synergic action with smart buildings and electric home appliances, allowing to save on electricity consumption and favouring a balance between consumption, electricity production and overall grid capacity.
Enel’s activities for the safeguard of diversity in the countries where it operates. This commitment is a strategic objective of its environmental policy
The transition to a low-carbon economy in the energy system could produce positive effects on employment during the stages of production, installation and maintenance.
Energy policies must adjust to global consumption rise, especially in developing nations, which will increasingly weigh in the world’s economic trends
In 2011 Enel Distribuzione integrated into the grid almost 150,000 renewable plants for a capacity of about 9,500 MW. A huge effort, also considering that authorizations in Italy are among the most complex and varied in Europe
Within the present energy scenario, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the most beneficial and practical way to achieve a fast and crucial emission reduction
Challenges must be overcome in order to ensure a stable electricity system, even when grid-connecting growing amounts of variable energy like solar and wind power
