Leading the global transformation in the way you move

Electric mobility has gone up a gear on Europe’s streets and roads thanks to the many innovative solutions now being offered by leading car manufacturers. That said, one of the big talking points in any discussion about e-mobility has to be how to “fill up” fast, easily and sufficiently to enable e-cars to travel significant distances. It was with this in mind that our Group began forming alliances with high profile partners to guarantee a widespread network of fast charging points in Italy and across Europe.  

About Enel X and CharIn

From today Enel X is one of the Core Members of the Charging Interface Initiative, or CharIn, an association founded by Audi, BMW, Daimler, Mennekes, Opel, Phoenix Contact, Porsche, TÜV SÜD and Volkswagen to develop and promote the use of new charging systems capable of supplying up to 350 kW per charging point. Based in Berlin, CharIn is developing and establishing the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles. 

Charging Standards and Certifications

The association’s mission is also to draw up requirements for the evolution of charging-related standards with the aim of developing a certification system for use by manufacturers implementing the CCS in their products. As we are an established force on the e-mobility scene, our Group is seeking to broaden its own horizons through a partnership with CharIn to boost the development of the High Power Charging (HPC) network that uses a CCS that can supply a capacity of up to 350 kW per charging point.

A Strategic Partnership

This is a strategic and synergic partnership on the path already embarked upon by Enel X in order to make e-mobility in Europe an everyday reality that is accessible and affordable for everyone. Our Group is maximizing its commitment to implementing common standards and sharing good practices that will help spread a culture of e-mobility. The EV charging network, roadmaps, framework, interoperability and Vehicle-to-Grid integration are the key terms that illustrate the shared focus of the CharIn members, a focus that is reflected in the goals of Enel X, the global business line dedicated to innovative digital products and solutions.
