About the Grant:

Enel Green Power (EGP) is looking for new tools to improve the environmental sustainability and biodiversity preservation of its renewable installations, such as photovoltaic plants and/or wind farms. In particular, EGP is looking for solutions to be applied during the construction phase of renewable power plants to detect selected tree or other vegetation species, that may be rare, in danger of extinction, or of particular importance for the local biodiversity equilibrium of the considered area, or that are protected by regulation. Improperly identified plant species during the preliminary phase of a project could delay the renewable plant construction.

Enel Green Power (EGP), a global leader in the development and management of energy production from renewable sources (wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal), is aware of the value of the ecosystems and of biodiversity and is committed to the responsible management of natural resources along the construction phase of new plants. EGP, pursuing the target of a 100% renewable generation, is opening, and managing new construction sites in the Countries where it is present, always looking for new tools and techniques to enable strategies aimed at improving the environmental sustainability and guaranteeing biodiversity preservation of its renewable installations. Protected tree species, not properly detected and identified during the preliminary phase of construction projects, could lead to delays to project timelines, costly redesign works or even bring the entire construction site activities to a halt. In particular, EGP is looking for artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to be applied during the construction phase of renewable power plants to detect selected tree or other vegetation species, that may be rare, in danger of extinction, or of particular importance for the local biodiversity equilibrium of the considered area, or that are protected by regulation.
