New energy spaces

The energy transition, in which we are engaged on a daily basis, also concerns the redesigning of power plants to make them more sustainable and circular. For this reason, in 2020, we launched four competitions involving the following plants: Eugenio Montale in La Spezia, Andrea Palladio in Fusina (Ve), Torrevaldaliga Nord in Civitavecchia and Federico II in Brindisi.

The competitions were open to professionals in the fields of architecture and engineering with a view to selecting the best solutions to make the plants increasingly modern and efficient, making use of technical and scientific support from local universities, in particular the University of Genoa for Eugenio Montale, the IUAV University of Venice for Andrea Palladio, the Tuscia University for Torrevaldaliga Nord, and the University of Salento for Federico II.

On April 21, 2021, June 16, 2021 and September 16, 2021, the selection committees, comprised of representatives from Enel, universities and local institutions, assessed the projects that were presented for the Fusina, Civitavecchia and Brindisi power plants contests and compiled the respective final rankings. The competition process regarding the La Spezia power plant was closed without assignment.
