EnSiEL is a Consortium of public Italian Universities; the twenty one Universities members of EnSiEL employ almost 100% of the academic experts operating in the area of energy and power systems; they are University of Aquila, Politecnico di Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Calabria, Cassino, Catania, Genova, Politecnico di Milano, Napoli “Federico II”, Università della Campania L.Vanvitelli”, Padova, Palermo, Parthenope, Pavia, Pisa, Salerno, Sannio, Trieste, Politecnico di Torino.

The operation of EnSiEL started at the end of 2009.

The Board of Directors is composed by a representative of each member University, a representative of the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research and a representative of the Italian Ministry for the Economic Development.

EnSiEL Consortium:

  • promotes and coordinates studies and researches;
  • trains to research, also with study and research grants;
  • fosters the cooperation among the member Universities, and among these and research centers and industries, domestic and abroad;
  • provides multidisciplinary support to designers, developers, users and operators of electrical power components and systems;
  • promotes and fosters didactics and training;ntends to be a scientific partner of national and local public bodies, of the Italian regulator AEEGSI, of standardization bodies (CEI, IEC, etc.), and of public and private entities.

The number, the qualification and the specialties of the researchers with the member Universities allow EnSiEL to play in the field of power system research as a unitary team with many, varied and qualified knowledge and competence.
