What happens next?
Enel will provide financial and technical support to develop and test the technologies and solutions selected, both in the Innovation Lab located in Catania and recently renewed with state-of-the-art infrastructures and in real plants. Startups and SMEs will have access to testing infrastructures, high-tech locations and co-working areas, in addition to being connected to national and international stakeholders thanks to the global network of Enel Innovation Hubs.
