Sara Montomoli

Enel Green Power

Head of Geothermal Innovation

I was born in Italy – Volterra –, and grown up in Pomarance, the municipality where Larderello geothermal power plants are located.  I studied Chemical Engineering at Università degli Studi di Pisa, obtaining the  master’s degree in chemical engineering in 2008. After a short collaboration with Università di Pisa, in the same year I was hired by EnelGreenPower in the Geothermal Operation&Maintenace unit. From 2010 to 2011 I have been responsible of the operation team within the Larderello geothermal area (8 power plants – one of the 4 geothermal geographical areas in which our power plants are divided). From 2012 to 2018 I have been Director of 14 geothermal power plants (included the first hybrid Geothermal&Biomass Cornia2 power plnat) and their related steam network within the Lago geothermal area. Since January 2019 I am responsible of the Geothermal Innovation unit. I am also board member of EGEC (European Geothermal Energy Council) and ETIP-DG (European Technology & Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal).
