The dawn of a new 100% electric era in the Italian Motor Valley
Energica Motor Company S.p.A., a leading manufacturer of high-performing electric motorcycles and FIM Enel MotoE World Cup Single Manufacturer until 2022, has signed a new partnership with Reinova, the innovative centre for excellence in the development and validation of components for sustainable-mobility electric and hybrid powertrains.
The Reinova project was conceived by REI Lab s.r.l, Unindustria RE and Fondazione REI, with the support of important financial partners such as Intesa San Paolo.
Reinova’s headquarters will be next to the Energica factory and will expand the Electric Valley, which the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has been able to build over the last 10 years of its history.
A new 100% electric-oriented centre is born in Modena, the heart of Italy’s motor industry, and marks the dawn of a new sustainable era totally made in Italy.
The three-year agreement linking Energica and Reinova will focus on an industrial partnership that aims at developing technological tests for the development and validation of e-mobility components, which will also include modules and batteries. This joint work will be carried out within the company’s new cutting-edge facility, and will make it possible to improve validation methods through algorithms, hardware and software, specifically developed with extremely advanced tools assisted by artificial intelligence solutions and big data analysis. The research and development environment should benefit both companies.
The process will start with analysis of materials and competitors, and end with the assessment of the environment impacts.
“We are always looking for new opportunities that can guarantee growth and development to our product,” said Giampiero Testoni, CTO Energica Motor Company S.p.A. “It’s very important for us to have a neighbour like Reinova, who is able to give us the possibility to carry out important tests. We have always believed in the power of innovation, and that’s exactly what we have been doing over the last 10 years – studying innovative solutions or our products”.
“I am so proud to announce the partnership between Reinova and Energica. This collaboration stems from common values, where the passion to speed towards a conversion process linked to electrification will benefit the entire sector”, said Giuseppe Corcione, CEO of Reinova. “We are giving a strong signal to the territory, so companies that share the same values and vision of the evolution of mobility can join us to create added value, while supporting each other also from a technological point of view. We are a research, development and validation centre, while Energica is a very specific, high-performance end user company, consistent with our mission, which focuses on the high-performance segment.”
This agreement between Energica Motor Company S.p.A. and Reinova promises to be a significant step towards a new electric world.
