Technology: At ENEA the first European Institutional mirror of Software Heritage

The ENEA Research Center in Bologna will host the first Italian Mirror of World’s Largest Source Codes Archive: the Software Heritage Archive. Software Heritage is an established non-profit initiative launched by Inria, the French National Institute for Digital Sciences, aimed at collecting, organizing, preserving and sharing all publicly available open source code. Sharing the vision that software is a precious part of our cultural heritage, ENEA is very proud to collaborate to this important project by keeping a full copy of the contents of the archive.

Energy: ENEA - IEA report, women trained and competent but excluded from top leadership

In Italy there are highly qualified women in the energy sector who are being denied access to top positions. This is what emerges from the second report on gender equality in the sector, coordinated by ENEA as part of the Technology Collaboration Program of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The data show that our country has a good ranking position in scientific education with women accounting for 37% of the total graduates, with a maximum 40% reached by Sweden, which participated in the survey together with Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile and Finland.

Energy: ENEA, with ecobonus 3.3 billion investments in 2018, 39 billions since 2007

Testa: “Possible quality leap with the ecobonus for condos”. Investments for over 39 billion euro in energy redevelopment projects, of which 3.3 billions in 2018 alone, with cumulative savings of around 100 million Megawatt-hours (MWh). Briefly, this is the balance as of 2018 after 12 years of ecobonus, the mechanism introduced in 2007 to encourage energy efficiency in end uses.

Energy: Italy, record for wind and solar, consumption and emissions down (-3%)

In the first quarter of the year, ISPRED index back in positive territory. A significant leap forward in electricity production from wind and solar energy, which marked a + 24% in the first quarter of the year compared to the same period of 2018; hydroelectric production fell sharply (-12%) as well as energy consumption (-3%) and carbon dioxide emissions (-3%). This is the scenario outlined by the Quarterly ENEA Quarterly Analysis of the Italian Energy System, which shows that in the first quarter of 2019, non-programmable renewable sources reached 15.2% of electricity generation, reaching the historical maximum of 15.4% of the second half of 2016.
