Today, innovation cannot be achieved without welcoming young talent and the emerging entrepreneurial companies in Italy. Next Energy is a Terna programme developed in collaboration with the Cariplo Foundation to promote and support the most innovative ideas and projects in the electricity sector.
Through this project Terna focuses on enhancing the synergies between excellences, promoting ideas and projects to digitalise the energy infrastructures.
A programme which represents our corporate strategy for Open Innovation: the needs for energy transition and testing of new technological solutions require in fact new skills (for example, statistical, mathematical or experts in big data and artificial intelligence).
The selection of mature businesses (that is with a high TRL, Technology Readiness Level, that have no need to be incubated) and therefore with products and skills already formed in fact enables Terna to find new important business opportunities.
