Reseller Partnership

Enel X Global Retail approved vendors promote our services, and contract directly with end customers under a reseller agreement.

Enel X Global Retail can assist partners in the commissioning and operations processes of the projects where needed.

Referral Partnership

Sale through indirect channels: the referral partner brings Enel X Global Retail an advanced lead with a customer and if we sign a contract, we either pay a referral fee or share the revenues with that partner. Enel X Global Retail joins partners in marketing, go-to-market and sales motions to provide our clients with a broader service offering to generate qualified leads. Typical referral partners include accounting firms, sustainability consultants and strategic consultants.

Financial Partnership

We partner with investors, sharing BESS and DE project ownership and risks. We are open to two partnership types: a Joint Venture with an investment fund, sharing our technical know-how, relevant projects pipeline and asset ownership. Or Project Financing: the partner finances the client’s project at the best market conditions and project ownership remains in the hands of the client. In both cases, the assets can benefit from Enel X Global Retail DR solutions, unlocking additional revenue streams.

Contractors (Industrial)

As General Contractor, Enel X Global Retail seeks trusted partners in its countries of presence along the whole value chain: subcontractors in engineering & construction and electromechanical mountings, as well as tailor-made SCADA system providers developing hardware and software configurations.
