SIMTE is an information system for monitoring developments and innovation in energy technology. The SIMTE platform makes available reports, data and analytics on performance, costs and market prospects of technologies for energy production, transformation and end-use. It addresses experts and stakeholders of the energy sector, and consumers who are in the process of making choices on energy technologies. The SIMTE project was developed by ENEA in 2018 and financed by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (DLgs 28, 3.3.2011, c. 7, Art. 40, DM 6.7.2012, DM 28.12.2012). The platform is currently being updated on behalf of the Ministry for Ecological Transition within the framework of the Electricity System Research Plan 2019-21.
