SRM’s Observatory on Energy aims to provide data, statistics, economic models and analyses, operating in line with the new concept of a science-based think tank. What it offers is a presentation of primary energy supply, final uses and energy transfers through captive and open sea corridors. In particular, it closely monitors this sector’s connections with the maritime-port economy as well as environmental aspects linked to sustainability along with their geopolitical implications.
This Observatory has produced the research project ENEMED, where SRM’s know-how regarding economic relations in the Mediterranean and a monitoring of energy infrastructure and renewable sources are complemented by engineering expertise from ESL@Energy Center (University of Turin).
This synergy results in the annual MED & Italian Energy report, a research project that follows and analyses the evolution of energy changes worldwide and how they impact the Euro-Mediterranean area, where Italy can play a strategic role as the bridge in the context of energy transition.
The Observatory Energy & Med is a member of a prestigious network of national and international institutions which, besides the aforementioned ESL@Energy Center of the University of Turin, comprises the Matching Energies Foundation.
Amongst others, key partners for past research projects have included: Assoporti, Enel Foundation, Joint Research Center of the European Commission, Kühne Logistics University of Hamburg, Middle East Institute-National University of Singapore, Robert Triffin International, The International Propeller Club-Port of Milan.
