Findings of the “E-Quality: Shaping an inclusive energy transition” study, with a focus on Italy and carried out by Eurelectric with the scientific contribution of Enel Foundation, and in collaboration with Guidehouse, Cambridge Econometrics, and Elettricità Futura, were further discussed yesterday, during a web conference attended by notable keynote speakers and guests, such as Agostino Re Rebaudengo - President of Elettricità Futura, Giuseppe Montesano - Deputy Director of Enel Foundation, and Alessio Cipullo – European Affairs and Research Dept. at Elettricità Futura.
The study, first presented at an online webinar on June 26, demonstrates how the energy transition, if properly accompanied by incisive national and European policies, can have positive distributional effects in terms of GDP, employment and reduction of inequalities.
The roundtable was later attended by Carlo de Masi - President of Adiconsum, Prof. Ettore Francesco Bompard - Politecnico di Torino, Patrizia Toia - Vice-Chair of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), Marco Peruzzi - VP of Sustainability, Institutional Affairs and Regulation at Edison, Gilda Amorosi - Head of Energy Policy, Climate & Sustainability at Eurelectric, and Simone Mori, - European Director at Enel Group and member of the Scientific Committee of Enel Foundation, who commented: “Energy transition represents a global challenge that requires a common effort from institutions, companies, and civil society. It’s a great investment and occupation opportunity towards a more modern and clean society, that will have to necessarily be accompanied by training and qualification activities.”
