Transport: A new alliance in Italy to improve road and rail safety

Italy is to become the first European country with an integrated system to monitor critical infrastructures thanks to an agreement among ENEA, the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) and the Ministry of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility (MIMS), as envisaged in the memorandum of understanding signed by the general manager for Digitization, Information and Statistical Systems of the MIMS, Mario Nobile, the president of ENEA Gilberto Dialuce and the president of the INGV Carlo Doglioni.

Energy: More than 800 members joined the National Network for Sustainable Agrivoltaics

More than 800 members have joined the National Network for Sustainable Agrivoltaics after it was launched by ENEA in May 2021 to promote the definition of a regulatory framework for the sector, of tools to support decision-makers and of guidelines to build plants that allow the production of electricity from solar panels while at the same time cultivating the land

Energy: Italy, ENEA study on how to save 2.7 billion cubic metres of gas and 180 euros on household bills

Save almost 2.7 billion cubic metres of methane gas and reduce household bills by around 180 euros per year through a set of cost-saving measures in the residential sector. This in short is the objective of the study “Actions to reduce national gas demand in the residential sector” drawn up by ENEA and presented by its president Gilberto Dialuce during an online press event attended by the Minister for Ecological Transition Roberto Cingolani.

Space: the first micro vegetable garden Made in Italy launched into orbit

GREENCube is the first space vegetable garden experiment launched into orbit with the maiden flight of the European Space Agency's (ESA) new VEGA-C launcher from the Kourou base in French Guiana, together with the LARES2 scientific satellite and five other nano-satellites. The micro vegetable garden measuring 30 x 10 x 10 centimetres was designed by an all-Italian scientific team consisting of ENEA, the Federico II University of Naples and Sapienza University of Rome, in the role of coordinator and contractor with the Italian Space Agency (ASI).

Research: Italian Air Force, ENEA and Cnr test biofuel on a military jet for the first time

First experimental flights for an Italian Air Force aircraft powered by a fuel mixture containing up to 25% biofuel. The tests were conducted on an AMX fighter by pilots and specialized personnel of the Air Force at the Aeronautical and Space Experimentation Division (DASAS) located in Pratica di Mare (Rome). The project came from a preliminary study and experimentation activity carried out in collaboration with researchers from ENEA and three institutes of the National Research Council (CNR), the Institute on Atmospheric Pollution (IIA), the National Institute of Optics (INO) and the Institute of Sciences and Technologies for Energy and Sustainable Mobility (STEMS).

Health: Innovative video analysis system by ENEA to combat Parkinson's disease

ENEA and Tor Vergata Hospital in Rome have developed an innovative video analysis system for early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease and personalisation of drug therapy. Published in the international journal Applied Sciences, the research focused on alterations in motor skills, such as changes in balance, posture and gait, which are hallmarks of the disease. The analysis of these abilities provides relevant early clues for the diagnosis and study of disease progression, facilitating the initiation and evaluation of therapy.

Water: drought, with technological innovation, water savings and lower costs for agriculture

Use treated wastewater to irrigate and fertilise fields, meeting up to 70% of the Emilia-Romagna region's irrigation water needs, also reducing fertiliser costs by around 30%. This is the result of experiments conducted by the VALUE CE IN project coordinated by ENEA, in partnership with the Hera Group and the University of Bologna among others. As part of the project, an innovative prototype system for reusing treated water for irrigating peach trees and tomato plants was developed and successfully tested at the Hera treatment plant in Cesena.

Water: drought, ENEA's 20 tips for saving water (and energy)

Rule number one: don’t waste water. A tip that is always valid, but even more so during a water emergency like the one we are currently experiencing, marked by the worst drought in 10 years. To combat water waste and make its management more sustainable, ENEA has drawn up a 20-point guide with suggestions and good practices, mistakes to avoid, and also solutions and technologies for saving water (and energy), especially in the residential sector. In short, when at home reduce leaks and waste and use it more rationally. In general, employ less water-intensive processes and systems, purification and reuse, improved efficiency and digitisation of the waterworks, but also good practices by families and schools.
