    Enel S.p.A. - Enel and Federdistribuzione sign a memorandum of understanding for the dissemination of electric mobility

    January 24, 2022 - Borsa Italiana (Web Disclosure) via PUBT



      Rome/Milan, January 24th, 2022 - Promoting the dissemination of electric mobility by installing charging points so the electric vehicles can be filled up while drivers are shopping. This is one of the objectives that has led Federdistribuzione and Enel, through the new global division dedicated to electric mobility, to sign a memorandum of understanding that opens the way to initiatives tailored to the energy transition.

      "Through the agreement with Federdistribuzione, we aim to further expand our network in the coming years, which has more than 14,000 charging points throughout Italy," saidFederico Caleno, Head of Enel's Italy Global Business Line dedicated to electric mobility "This is a strategic partnership that will allow people to make the most of the benefits of electric mobility, for example by charging their vehicles in the car parks connected to all the activities that are part of the Federdistribuzione network throughout Italy."

      "We think that sustainable mobility will be a reality when it becomes part of people's everyday lives. The 60 million customers, as well as citizens, who enter our shops every week will increasingly rely on the availability of charging points, which are essential to contributing to this major transition to electric vehicles. Thanks to Enel's technology and our network of shops, we can aim to create a true backbone of charging stations across Italy. This agreement also responds to a clear need for shared commitment to the energy transition, in line with the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. We need to give concrete form to projects along the lines set out in the plan, which needs to become a reality," statesAlberto Frausin, President of Federdistribuzione.

      With a network of 15,600 sales outlets and car parking spaces ranging from several hundred up to 3,000 for large structures, Federdistribuzione member companies can potentially count on more than 500,000 available parking spaces. Enel's charging stations, thanks to their different power levels, will make it possible to create a network that meets the needs of each customer and will give a further boost to the growth of e-Mobility throughout the country.

      Enel is a multinational power company and a leading integrated player in the global power and renewables markets, as well as one of the main gas operators in the retail market.
