The Future of Energy is from Renewable Sources

Published on Wednesday, 6 December 2017

“We are facing an energy transition of extraordinary scope, which no longer needs to be supported by incentives but that can stand on its own two feet.”

– Paolo Gentiloni – Italian Prime Minister

This will allow us to obtain more and more clean energy and increase the competitiveness of our industry. The reduction of the cost of renewable energy sources, in fact, marks the start of a new energy age, stimulating further investments for innovation and development as well. 

“We will allocate 5.3 billion euro in the next three years, 90% of which will be used for the digitisation of technological assets (grids and plants), and 10% for corporate processes, systems and culture. This is how we will make the passage to modern renewable energy, that is, not incentivised, to come back and invest in Italy.”

– Francesco Starace, CEO Enel

Enel’s commitment to Italy has a double value: on one hand, as part of the green economy, it’s taken on a supporting role for Italian SMEs aiming to invest abroad. On the other, it will bring the experience gained in the renewable energy sector in the various contexts where it works to the country, in the areas of operational excellence, innovation and sustainability.

“You need to be well-timed and technologically advanced to win tenders in Mexico, the United States, Chile and soon, we hope, also in Italy”

– Antonio Cammisecra – CEO of EGP

In addition to competitive tenders, it will be important to promote, throughout Europe, the development of PPAs (Power Purchase Agreements), long-term purchase agreements for energy that prove to be advantageous in both the short and long term, with stable returns protected from inflation. An increasing trend around the world, especially in the United States.
