Agreement between Autostrade per l’Italia, Eni and CDP to improve sustainable mobility
Autostrade per l’Italia, Eni and CDP have signed an agreement to develop joint initiatives for the energy transition of their businesses.
Among the innovations of this joint agreement will be the increase in the number of electric charging stations, the definition of programs for the development of sustainable products for the improvement of motorway paving and the launch of circular economy initiatives.
Sustainable mobility at the heart of the agreement
In a joint note, the three companies announced the partnership underlining that the collaboration area is that of sustainable mobility, with the aim of decarbonising the Italian motorway network.
To achieve this important goal, energy carriers will be developed for both cars and heavy vehicles. Furthermore, plants will be built for the production of renewable energy, through the installation of photovoltaic parks in the motorway network.
Among the noteworthy areas of the partnership, also the definition of programs for the development of sustainable products for the improvement of the pavement of the motorways and the launch of circular economy initiatives. One of all, the collection of used tires that can be regenerated and given a second life in sustainable chemical and energy products.
Fabio Barchiesi (CDP) comments on the increase in electric charging stations
Among the novelties, this agreement provides for an increasing number of columns for 100% electric recharging hosted in the refueling areas.
Fabio Barchiesi, Head of Plan Implementation Coordination and Strategic Initiatives of Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, commented: “The project will result in the presence of an increasing number of columns for electric recharging in refueling areas, of decarbonised vectors, such as electricity, biomethane and hydrogen. But also plants for the production of energy from renewable sources, which will be built in the immediate vicinity of the areas available to ASPI or near the motorway network”..
An alliance that makes the difference: for Fabio Barchiesi it paves the way for future collaborations

Again Fabio Barchiesi commented: “It is an important partnership not only for the technical aspects, but also for the strategic ones, because it is also thanks to alliances like this that Cassa wants to be more and more the engine for collaborations between the most important Italian industrial groups”.
“Cassa wants to support interventions and projects to combat climate change and promote sustainable development, while ensuring a significant socio-economic impact for the country” – commented the CEO of CDP, Dario Scannapieco. Thus echoed Roberto Tomasi, AD of Aspi: “It is an alliance that will be able to make a difference, in the name of increasingly green mobility, looking to the future of the new generations, in the right balance between respect for the environment and growth of the country”. While Giuseppe Ricci, Eni’s Energy Evolution Director, underlined that: “today we are bringing together various solutions for the decarbonisation of long-distance transport, including for heavy vehicles”.
