Clean energy: Salina among the islands leading the transition to renewables in Europe

Salina, in the Sicilian Aeolian archipelago, was chosen among the six pilot islands of the European Union for the transition to clean energy as part of the iniative "Clean Energy for EU Islands” of the European Commission, aiming at promoting self-sufficiency, sustainability and new jobs in smaller islands. The activities will start in the upcoming months with the drafting of a plan for the island's energy transition, thanks to the support of ENEA, the Sicilian Region and the European Clean Energy Secretariat.

Hydrogeological instability: Innovative model to predict risks of ‘rivers of mud’

A multidisciplinary team of ENEA researchers has developed an innovative methodology to predict the intensity and path of "rivers of mud", a type of landslide with particularly catastrophic effects, and identify areas and infrastructures at risk. The novelty of the methodology lies in an approach based on cross-checking geographical, historical and territorial data, as well as field studies conducted during the landslides of Messina and on risk mitigation tests conducted in Afghanistan (1) with World Bank funds.
