Energy: Air pollution affects energy yield of photovoltaic systems

In Italy, air pollution has a significant impact on photovoltaic yield, with average annual losses of 5% caused by atmospheric particulate alone (PM2.5) and peaks that can reach double digits in areas particularly polluted by fine dust, as reported by a study conducted at the ENEA Portici Research Center (Naples), jointly with the Department of Environmental Engineering of the Federico II University of Naples.

Environment: New Italian technologies for coastline mapping

Innovative remote observation technologies will make it possible to study beaches and sea beds to mitigate the effects of coastal erosion and improve tourist accomodation. These are the outcomes of a research conducted by a multidisciplinary team of ENEA, ISPRA, CNR and IUSS researchers on a stretch of the coast of the Circeo National Park between Latina and Sabaudia, Lazio. The studies, published in the international journal Remote Sensing are based on a new technique that combines remote sensing techniques with high resolution aerial sensors (LiDAR - Light Detection and Ranging) and in situ measurements for the calibration and verification of the acquired data.

COVID-19: Sensors, artificial intelligence and molecular dogs deployed to detect the virus

Trained bio-detection dogs to identify individuals infected with SARS-COV-2, chemical sensors, portable multi sensory platforms and artificial intelligence. These are some of the state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques presented during the training event of the International Society on Olfaction and Chemical Sensing (ISOCS), of which ENEA is a scientific partner. At the event, attended by 90 researchers from four continents, the causes for the loss of smell in people affected by the virus and the most innovative technologies to identify carriers were discussed.
