Enel, the smart electricity grid of the future starts from Genoa


Enel has chosen the city & agrave; of Genoa for its Grid Futarability project which aims to introduce innovative technologies to make the electricity grid more & ugrave; sustainable, participatory and resilient. Specifically, we will leave from Genoa Certosa and Sampierdarena, the two districts that symbolize the collapse and reconstruction of the Morandi bridge. Overall, in 4 years E-Distribuzione will invest; around 11 million euros in this project to digitize the grid and experiment with new technologies at the service of the energy transition.

The project is was presented at the Auditorium of the Aquarium of Genoa. Among others, the mayor Marco Bucci, Vincenzo Ranieri, CEO of E-Distribuzione and Enrico Bottone, North-West Area Manager of E-Distribuzione participated.


The electricity network of distribution & egrave; very important as it is an infrastructure that enables the energy transition process . A network capable of developing and providing new services for citizens and welcoming more and more; l & rsquo; energy produced from renewable sources. The objective behind this project is to transform it into a flexible network, open to collaboration and increasingly more; digital.

All while guaranteeing quality; and reliability; of the service in a sustainable perspective to maximize economic value and reduce environmental impacts. The Grid Futarability project should not be seen as a local initiative but as a model for the transformation of distribution networks into Smart Grids through the combination of traditional systems and advanced digital solutions.

The first step of the initiative includes a series of activities; focused on the installation of innovative technologies in 30 secondary substations and 4 primary substations, in the context of a network further strengthened by the construction of new medium voltage connection lines. The new technologies that will be implemented will allow for more; accurate network management. For example, it will be & agrave; it is possible to identify faults in near real time.

Technologies such as the Smart street box will then be introduced. It is a & quot; road box & quot; which has sensors and intelligent devices that allow the actual status of the network to be provided in real time. Furthermore, by exploiting the communication channels of the Open Meter (the new smart meter) it will be; It is possible to enable new services.

This project aims to demonstrate the advantages deriving from the implementation of digital networks in favor of customers, businesses, communities; and neighborhoods. The innovations will then be very important for the future, thinking about the growth of mobility; electric. The distribution network will have to evolve in order to manage in the best way the increase in energy demand deriving from battery-powered vehicles being recharged.
