Even in the Italian market which is engaged into an ambitious drive towards Net Zero carbon by 2030, with those goals according to the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP): this strategy implies numerous challenges for the system resilience and security, just as business opportunities for ENGIE Italia. Key elements of the NECP are:
The Italian Power System complexity, with the progressive increase of not- programmable RES in Southern Regions, puts pressure on grid, with more congestion-hours in North, Centre-North, and Centre-South zones. In addition, the progressive reduction of traditional programmable installed capacity and coal phase- out (-8 GW within 2025) puts pressure on the reserve margin. These stress factors represent real challenges for the power system, while the energy transition enablers will be: long term price signals, markets integration and evolution, digitalization. All opportunities for GEM Italy.
There will be an increasing need to balance the electric grid at local level, where batteries could play a role. ENGIE Italia, with its deep expertise in managing flexibility assets (CCGTS, flexible gas storages, etc.) and in risk management, can provide viable solutions for flexibility asset owners/ developers and support the Electricity System Operator in getting through the challenges. Engie Italia is the 1st player in energy storage solutions for green grids.
Moreover, ENGIE Italia is owning and managing 300 MW of renewable power plants plus third party assets on yearly basis. This knowledge is leading to a primary role in the long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) sector.
