A sector that's rapidly expanding, domotics - domus (home) plus robotics - are smart houses that manage temperature and lighting to minimize wasted electricity. For example, smart thermostats sense your presence and set the temperature according to your needs, saving 20% a year on heating bills. Watch this episode of Eni's Energy Shot series to learn how domotics save money and increase a home's value.
We pay little attention to the waves of the sea, yet they are the greatest unused source of renewable energy in the world. Meet ISWEC and Power Buoy, two interesting new technologies used to harness this energy. Learn more about the extraordinary power of waves in this episode of Eni's Energy Shot series, where we investigate interesting facts and trends about energy.
Did you know that Eni has the fastest industrial supercomputer in the world? The HCP5 supercomputing system can perform 52 trillion mathematical operations a second (52 petaflops) and is being used to support a wide range of projects, including research on renewable energy. Learn more about HCP5 in this episode of Eni's Energy Shot series.
Wouldn't it be clever if your windows could capture the light coming through and turn it directly into usable solar energy? Eni is developing a way to do just that. Watch this video to find out how ingenious these smart windows are, in Eni's Energy Shot series about interesting facts and trends about energy.
When land is polluted with heavy metals and hydrocarbons, traditional methods of reclamation can make things worse. But a new technique using the purifying properties of plants offers the perfect solution. Learn how it works in this episode of Eni's Energy Shot series, which explores interesting facts and trends about energy.
The scraps from your kitchen could be reborn as fuel. Bio-oil, to be precise. The key is Eni's waste to fuel technology. Learn how it's being used in Italy in this episode of Eni's Energy Shot series, which explores interesting facts and trends about energy.
Pop quiz: what percentage of plastic currently gets recycled worldwide? Watch this video in Eni's Energy Shot series to find out and learn what needs to be done to prevent plastic from ending up in our oceans. Plastic is a precious resource that should be valued, not wasted.
Wales, early 19th century: During breaks from his law studies, William Robert Grove indulges in his passion for science to become an inventor. On his honeymoon in Europe, he learns about the new energy source everyone's talking about: electricity. After learning that electricity allows water to be broken down into its two components, hydrogen and oxygen, his intuition leads him to an idea that ends up making him a pioneer of sustainable energy production.
Watch the story of William Robert Grove in Eni's MINDS series, where we travel through time seeking scientists.
