(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 31 – Eni and Ansaldo Energia, international players in the energy transition and long-term partner, have signed an agreement to develop projects “based on innovative technological solutions for the storage of electricity as alternatives to electrochemical batteries” . This was announced in a joint press release explaining that “the accumulations of electricity are essential to overcome the structural limit of programmability and intermittence of renewable sources and therefore favor their development”.
The agreement, the note continues, provides that “these technologies, already under study and already subjected to Eni’s ‘technology validation’ process, are implemented in synergy in some industrial sites of Eni and its subsidiaries in Italy, exploiting the potential of the existing systems of production and consumption of electricity “.
Renewable energies, wind and photovoltaic, notes Giuseppe Ricci, Eni’s general manager of Energy Evolution, “are essential solutions for the success of the energy transition” and Eni is dedicating great effort and resources to grow rapidly in these areas “by proceeding with decarbonisation. L he initiative with Ansaldo Energia is part of “the growth of Enipower’s role as a provider of network services, increasingly necessary – with the growth of renewables and the electrification of final consumption – to guarantee the stability of the national grid”, declares Francesco Giunti, director delegate and president of Enipower.
“Having been chosen by Eni, with whom we have been collaborating for many years, for a concrete commitment in the challenge of the energy transition is a strong source of pride and satisfaction for us” says Giuseppe Marino, CEO of Ansaldo Energia. “The technological solution underlying the agreement, an alternative to lithium-ion batteries, is rooted in a strong European supply chain, guarantees a safe long-lasting energy storage service, overcomes the obstacles related to disposal and does not present problems related to critical issues. supply “concludes Daniela Gentile, CEO of Ansaldo Green Tech.
