Enel Activity In The Research, Exploration And Exploitation Of Geothermal Energy In Italy
Journal Article: Enel Activity In The Research, Exploration And Exploitation Of Geothermal Energy In Italy
AbstractIn Italy the utilization of geothermal resources for industrial purposes began about 150 years ago. Prior to 1913, geothermal fluids were utilized both as a source of heat and chemical products; from 1913 to 1965, combined chemical and electric production was achieved; from 1965 on, power generation prevailed over chemical production, which was abandoned immediately thereafter; between 1975 and 1984, geothermal energy was mostly used for generating electricity, but a number of thermal projects were also started. An overview is given of Italian geothermal development after 1975, including electric production and direct applications of geothermal heat. More in particular, the research and development activity in the period 1975-1985 is first presented, and the criteria, programmes and development objectives through 1995 are then illustrated.
