Enel Moves Hybrid Renewables Forward Again with World’s First Biomass and Geothermal Project

Italy’s Enel Green Power is entrenching itself as a global leader in hybrid renewables engineering and construction with another announcement of a global first. In November, the company revealed that it would build a €15 million, 5-MW biomass plant to boost the Cornia 2 geothermal plant’s 13-MW capacity in Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Tuscany, as “the first plant in the world to use biomass to heat geothermal steam and boost the energy efficiency and output of the geothermal cycle.”

“Hybrid technologies are the new frontier of renewable energy in our efforts to optimize performance.” — Francesco Venturini, CEO of Enel Green Power.
