Italian oil and gas company Eni on 4 May signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Research Council (CNR) covering joint research in nuclear fusion, water, agriculture and the Arctic ecosystem. Eni and CNR are to invest more than €20m ($28m) over five years to establish a fusion research centre in Gela, Sicily - one of four joint research centres to be set up under the agreement.

Italian energy group Eni is considering stepping up its investment in nuclear fusion, Reuters reported on 13 April. Eni in March committed €50m ($62m) Commonwealth Fusion System, a firm set up by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Eni’s head of development operations and technology, Roberto Casula, estimates it will cost $3bn to develop a 200MW fusion reactor by 2033 and says Commonwealth Fusion System is looking to raise more funds. Casula noted Eni had signed a deal giving it the right to use the project’s intellectual property. “The eventual stake we’ll have in the company will be decided when there is an overall investment agreement, also depending on how much they will raise,” Casula said.
