Eni has installed and activated the Inertial Sea Wave Energy Converter (ISWEC) production unit, capable of converting energy generated by waves into electricity, in Ravenna, Italy. 

The pilot plant was installed at the Ravenna offshore site by Eni’s Central Northern District and has been integrated into the hybrid smart grid system featuring photovoltaics and energy storage as well.

It reached a peak power output of over 51 kW, or 103% of its nominal power, the company said.

Eni’s commitment to researching and developing energy from renewable sources jointly with the Politecnico di Torino (PoliTO) and the spin off Wave for Energy has led to the identification of wave power’s enormous potential and recognizing it as the most unexploited renewable energy resource worldwide.

The power available by waves can be adapted to off-grid scenarios and, at the same time, works alongside other renewable sources to create a resilient energy system with zero emissions.
