By 2030, total electricity consumption is estimated to substantially increase, while in the same period the use of fossil sources is to be significantly reduced. This makes the contribution of renewables a key element of the energy equation.
Renewable sources include solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and biomass energy. Their progressive diffusion allows for the phasing down of carbon emissions and a better use of resources. It also leads to a higher degree of energy independence – since renewable power generation is essentially local.
Based on the long-standing Ansaldo experience in the renewable energy field, Ansaldo Energia and Ansaldo Green Tech are engaged in research and development for flexible multi-source power generation and increasingly efficient energy storage.
Ansaldo Energia began working in the geothermal field more than a hundred years ago, when it powered what is considered the first industrial-level geothermal...
