“The new game of hydrogen in the Euro Mediterranean region”: this is the topic addressed by the new MED & ITALIAN ENERGY REPORT, the annual research work resulting from the synergy between SRM and the ESL@Energy Center of the Politecnico di Torino, with the collaboration of the Joint Research Center of the European Commission.
The Report, which has reached its third edition, was presented on 1st December 2021 in Brussels during a hybrid event attended by representatives of European institutions and leading players in the energy world. The presentation was under the patronage by MEPs Tiziana Beghin and Patrizia Toia, and was organised with the cooperation of Intesa Sanpaolo's Brussels office.
The President of Compagnia di San Paolo and ACRI, Francesco Profumo, delivered the closing address.
The Third "MED & Italian Energy Report” is the result of the synergy between SRM and the ESL@EnergyCenter of the Politecnico di Torino. The Joint Research Center of European Commission and the Matching Energies Foundation also contributed to the creation of the Report.
The ENEMED 2021 Report provides a comprehensive analysis of hydrogen, one of the new frontiers of the future energy system. Today, in fact, it is necessary to focus on energy sources and technologies that can enable the achievement of sustainability objectives currently at the core of the European and Italian agenda. In this context, the Mediterranean region can play a crucial role in terms of the development of new renewable sources and technologies aimed at reducing emissions and improving the efficiency of the entire energy chain. Ports and Shipping, along with the manufacturing sector, are among the leading players in the green transition and are looking with interest at the use of hydrogen as an energy vector for decarbonisation.
