Electricity may well be the energy vector of the future, thanks to the enormous potential it offers in terms of both sustainability and economic development. This is one possible scenario outlined in the “Electrify 2030” study carried out by The European House – Ambrosetti in collaboration with Enel X and the Enel Foundation serving as scientific partners. The research, which focuses mainly on the European and Italian contexts, analyses the scenarios opening up to electrification between now and 2030, outlining the opportunities that may arise as a result and providing some recommendations to optimise the benefits.
The report will be presented on 8 September as part of the 44th The European House – Ambrosetti Forum in Cernobbio (Como). The results of the study will, however, be made public on 7 September at a press conference at Villa d’Este. The meeting with the media will include speeches by Enel CEO Francesco Starace, Enel X CEO Francesco Venturini, and Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the IEA (International Energy Agency).
The findings of the study will be outlined by Lorenzo Tavazzi, Head of Scenarios & Intelligence at The European House – Ambrosetti and Project Leader on the "Electrify 2030" survey, and Raffaele Tiscar, a member of the study’s scientific committee. Also taking part in the discussion will be Francesco Profumo, President of Compagnia di San Paolo and a member of the aforementioned scientific committee. Enel Chairman Patrizia Grieco will also be attending the press conference.
