Dr. Eng. Giorgio Graditi - PhD in Electrical Engineering / Director of the Department
of Energy Technologies and Renewable Sources of ENEA (Italian National Agency
for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development), Italy.
He received the doctoral degree and the Laurea degree (cum laude) in Electrical
Engineering from the University of Palermo (Italy). From February 2022 is the
coordinator of ENEA activities and initiatives within National Recovery and Resilience
Plan, from April 2019, he is the President of MEDENER, Mediterranean Association of
National Agencies for Energy Management for energy efficiency and the development of
renewable energy sources, and from May 2019 is the Coordinator of the Scientific
Technical Committee of National Energy Technological Cluster under the Ministry of Education, University
He is operating as Italian member for Mission Innovation Challenge 1 “Smart Grids” and Challenge 2 “Offgrid
access to electricity”, and he is a member of the H2020 National Steering Board for the “Safe, Clean and
Efficient Energy” Cluster, and member of the working group of the thematic area "Industrial Energy” for the
“Climate, Energy and Sustainable Mobility” area set up by the Italian Ministry of University and Research
within the drafting of the national research plan 2020-2027.
He is the vice-coordinator of the Joint Programme on Smart Grid (JP SG) within European Energy Research
Alliance (EERA) and the responsible of many National and European (FP7, H2020) projects on the topics of
RES, integrated energy networks and smart grid. In 2017, he received the Italian National Scientific
Qualification as Full Professor in the sector of electrical energy engineering.
His main research interests are in: design, modelling and tools development for the control and management
of Smart Grids and microgrids in the presence of DER; energy conversion components and systems design
and characterization; performance analysis of integrated energy networks by multi-objective techniques;
design, modelling, and analysis of multi-energy hubs; management and operation optimization of local and
renewable energy communities; design, characterization and testing of concentrated solar power and
photovoltaic components and plants; technologies and uses of hydrogen; RES production and demand
forecasting based on artificial intelligence techniques.
He is also peer review, associated editor, member of editorial and advisory board of scientific journals, and
chairman in international conference. He is also responsible of many R&D contract and agreement in the
energy sector with international and national stakeholders. He is author of scientific books and more than 250
scientific papers (with Scopus H-index 37) published in international journals and proceedings of international
conference most of them awarded as highly-cited papers.
