Enel X Ferrari carbon neutrality

Enel X and Ferrari: racing together towards carbon neutrality

A new photovoltaic system at the Maranello, a fully off-grid carport and a battery storage system for Ferrari’s hybrid range and future full-electric vehicles.

Thanks to an agreement Ferrari has signed with Enel X, a new photovoltaic system will be installed on the roofs of the Ferrari factory in Maranello in order to boost the company’s self-production of energy while reducing CO₂ emissions. With more than 3,800 solar panels and a maximum capacity of 1,535 kWp, the system will cover part of the energy consumption in several areas of the company. In addition, a full off-grid carport with battery storage system has been specially designed to charge Ferrari’s hybrid range and future full-electric vehicles.

Enel X’s challenge

Ferrari wants to increase its self-production of energy and reduce emissions of CO₂ into the atmosphere as part of an environmentally and economically virtuous path towards sustainability in which carbon neutrality is the ultimate goal.
In order to meet Ferrari’s needs, Enel X designed a photovoltaic system that will be installed on the roofs of the famous factory in Maranello. The system will have a maximum capacity of 1,535 kWp and will be composed of more than 3,800 solar panels to ensure coverage of part of the consumption of several areas of the Ferrari premises. In addition, Enel X will create a PV parking canopy that is completely off grid and composed of a photovoltaic system and battery storage system to meet the charging needs of their new hybrid range and future full-electric vehicles. The charging performance will be monitored and shared through Enel X’s Energy Management System, which will display the data in real time on an LCD screen in the infrastructure.
Once running at full capacity, the entire project will save more than 18,500 metric tons of CO₂ over 25 years. The plant will be able to generate 1,626,802 kWh/year, thereby helping reduce emissions and meet the company’s carbon neutrality goals.
