A new way to experience energy
People are playing an increasingly active role to play in the energy market: in many cases they are the producers of the energy they consume thanks mainly to plants powered by renewable sources.
Enel is a key player in the continuous and rapid evolution of the world we are living in. We have embarked upon a journey of change, investing in technology, innovation and clean energy.
We offer everyone our evolved and smart services, which range from electric vehicles to energy efficiency and energy saving solutions, all made possible by the latest technological advances.
The future is a joint project
The Futur-e project is a programme to repurpose 23 power plants and a mining area. It’s also a chance to write new stories about the development of the local areas, sustainable innovation and energy reconversion.
With Futur-e we are working side by side with local government, businesses and the local communities to pave the way towards reinvigorating the Italian economy.
We are open to dialogue because it is essential for shaping a common, shared resource.
A circular economy project
We’re convinced that a business strategy must integrate a new, sustainable environmental approach in order to foster the transition to a circular economy.
This model places sustainability at its core in order to identify, through a shared approach, potential circular, long-term solutions capable of transforming each of these sites into new development opportunities for local communities.
From this perspective, Futur-e is an example of a virtuous circular economy project, both in its approach and its implementation.
Renewal through Innovation
From the United States to China, from the United Kingdom to Italy, all over the world thermal power plants and industrial sites have begun new lives, thanks to repurposing projects.
Creativity, openness to the needs of the public and to new ideas, have turned plant rehabilitation into development opportunities for local communities.
While some have maintained their industrial vocation, others have become multifunctional centres or recreational and cultural spaces.
The numerous success stories from all over the world show that the transformation of the energy scenario, through the development of renewables, smart grids and sustainable development models, does not mean leaving the power plants and local areas associated with past models to rot.
The ongoing changes compel everyone to open up to new horizons and to work together to seek new uses for the sites of such facilities, thereby creating a different future, one that is more sustainable and long-lasting.
