ENEA has worked on energy efficiency for over 30 years, being particularly concerned with R&D on those technologies aimed at increasing the efficiency of energy production and use. The Agency provides Public Administration with its support and advice to define methodologies for quantifying energy savings, to be used at the central and local levels as a mean to implement the various regulations and disseminate the culture of energy efficiency.
At present, ENEA provides:
- support to Public Administration and information and training, in its role of National Agency for Energy Efficiency
- development of advanced technologies for energy and industry,
- studies and research for electric power saving in the service, civil, public lighting, air-conditioning, transport sectors, under a Programme Agreement with the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.
