Italian energy company Eni has signed an agreement with General Electric (GE) to develop renewable energy projects, including offshore and onshore wind power, and hybrid solutions focused on energy efficiency.
Through this agreement, Eni and GE intend to jointly identify and develop large-scale power generation projects from renewable energy sources.
According to Eni, the agreement covers a wide range of innovative technologies, including onshore and offshore wind generation, solar power, hybrid gas-renewable projects, electrification of new and existing assets, waste-to-energy projects, the “green” conversion of mature or decommissioned industrial assets, and the deployment of technologies developed by Eni’s research and development department.
With this partnership, Eni aims to enhance its ability to implement projects in the renewable energy sector, leveraging its relationship with GE in planning, constructing and operating oil and gas industrial plants worldwide and drawing on GE’s diversified technological portfolio of products and solutions in both the conventional and the renewable energy sectors.
This agreement will help Eni to pursue the progressive decarbonization of its energy mix, the company says.
