Futur-e is studied at the University of Catania

Published on Tuesday, 5 December 2017

The University of Catania’s 2nd level Master "Customer Care and Consumer Protection" organised a meeting focussed on Futur-e, Enel’s programme aimed at the redevelopment of the sites of 23 thermoelectric plants that have completed or are about to end their role in the national energy system, to be carried out together with the local communities involved.
 
The lecture, held by Project Manager Emanuele Carpanese on December 1 at the Reburdone palace meeting room, looked into the issue of sustainability, one of the main topics of the Master and an essential element of the model implemented by Enel. The participants asked various questions, with the aim of getting to know the different aspects related to the project, from the energetic scenario that determined the progressive closedown of the thermoelectric plants to details regarding the redevelopment of a production site.
 
"Environmental, economic and social sustainability is an essential requirement for the selection of projects aimed to grant new life to the sites that are being decommissioned" - explained Carpanese.
 
Enel’s testimony was based on tangible procedures at different stages of progress: from the already redeveloped sites, such as Porto Marghera and Assemini, to the project contests for Rossano, Montalto di Castro, Porto Tolle, Bastardo, Bari and Trino and the sale procedures that involve Livorno.
From a circular economy perspective, plant sites are ideal locations for new activities, due to their strategic positions and the presence of assets to be reused in terms of connections, facilities and buildings.
