ERG and Innovation

Our Group has always been attentive to the research and development of new technologies in the Energy world.

In recent years the energy transition - the evolution of digitalisation - and the increasing crossover between sectors that were once quite separate from each other have made us reflect on our business and our capacity to innovate.

In 2016 we decided to adopt an Open Innovation approach, an innovating technology model commonly associated with the start-up world, with the aim of identifying solutions that converge with our strategic objectives, and more specifically our Business Plan, in terms of innovation connected with energy efficiency and combating climate change.

Technology, commercial and financial partnerships therefore facilitate us in terms of the activities of our assets and in identifying disruptive ideas connected, for example, to repowering and reblading, two of the approaches we have taken to meet the 2022 goals.
