Edoardo Marcenaro, Head of Legal & Corporate Affairs , Enel Grids srl
Lucrezia Albanese, Head of Regulatory and Antitrust Legal, Corporate, Regulatory and Antitrust Affairs, Enel Italia SpA

Lucrezia Albanese has a vast experience in litigation having formerly worked in the Relevant Litigation function of Enel SpA Legal Department and being at present Head of Regulatory and Antitrust in Enel Italia SpA. Her paper stems from two recent decisions: the first one issued by the Court of Rome which on February 26th 2024 rejected the action initiated in 2021 by 200 associations and individuals requesting compensation for damages deriving from the liability of the Italian State related to combating climate change; the second one issued last April 9th 2024 by the European Court of Human Rights, which ruled in favour of the KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz (“Senior Women for Climate Protection”) against Switzerland, stating the latter’s failure to protect its citizens from climate change "in good time and in an appropriate and consistent manner" and requiring the State to reassess and address its climate change goals.
