Eni Working on Solar Projects in Africa

Source: Reuters 4/6/2016, Location: Europe

Italian oil major Eni is ready to spend "hundreds of millions" of euros in developing solar power projects in Africa, the group's CEO said.

Speaking in a parliamentary hearing, Claudio Descalzi said the group was working on two solar projects in mature fields close to depletion where it was already operating. "We are also working on greenfield off-grid solutions in areas that are not easy to access," he said, adding that the idea was to create small hubs that could be interconnected.

Eni, which is controlled by the state, is the biggest foreign oil and gas producer in Africa.
