The need to act fast

The world is fast approaching a crunch moment, one in which decisions taken now will reverberate for years to come as the consequences of climate change play out, posing an existential threat to our civilization.

Now, more than ever, cutting emissions and decarbonizing our economies is imperative in order to ensure a sustainable future for everyone.

Ambitious goals are necessary, but hard

Recognition of the scale of the threat is gaining momentum, with some of the most important players in both politics and business pledging to take action. The European Commission is committed to a goal of slashing emissions by 55% by 2030, while the new administration in the US  targets 100% clean energy and net-zero emissions by 2050. 

This has prompted major players in the automobile industry, a bellwether for the world’s biggest economy, to commit to an all-electric future.

The energy transition spells opportunity

To meet those ambitious goals, entire countries and industries will have to embrace radical change in their ways. But while the climate emergency puts the energy transition front and center for all companies, it is energy companies that will have to lead the way.

They are the ones that produce, transport and distribute the means of powering economies around the world and it is they who have to ensure their activities are sustainable.

The energy transition is about much more than just change; it is about opportunity. 

At Enel X, we strive to make opportunities happen for everyone, everywhere, with an eye firmly on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and in particular SDGs 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and 13 (Climate Action).

Our role is as a catalyst for change, with unique skills at finding, feeding, fusing, and fine-tuning innovative technologies that we can turn into intuitive solutions that encourage smarter living by people, cities and businesses.

Promoting our vision

Our five product lines – based on the five pillars of the Circular Economy – promote this vision. Three business units – e-Home, e-Cities and e-Industries –separately target consumers, cities and businesses respectively. Meanwhile, our e-Mobility unit focuses on electric vehicles of all sorts and the infrastructure they require across all three target segments. Our Financial Services unit also supports all three, ensuring customers can meet their financial needs, whether these be paying to recharge an electric car or funding an array of photovoltaic panels.

Our technological leadership is grounded in the fields of electric mobility and energy efficiency, as well as such progressive solutions as grid flexibility, vehicle-to-grid and products and services based on the Circular Economy.

From electric mobility to smart cities, and from smart homes to energy storage and flexibility services

Linking up, gaining scale

A good example of this approach comes in the form of the partnership agreement between Enel X e-Mobility and multinational automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), which is designed to boost the uptake of electric vehicles. The electric Fiat 500, the original Italian city car, made its debut in March 2020. The importance of the alliance can only grow after Fiat Chrysler completed its merger with Peugeot in January to form Stellantis, the world’s fourth-largest carmaker. The new company will have the scale required for the heavy investment needed to back the transition to developing and building electric vehicles. In addition, the two companies agreed to establish an innovation committee to develop and test new e-mobility solutions, moving towards more sustainable transportation and enabling electrification and decarbonization worldwide.

Enel X’s ambition is to deliver the very best customer-centric solutions and we need partners to collaborate in designing innovative answers to the issues raised by modern lifestyles and to help us deliver as we lead the way towards sustainable technological transformation. Our technological expertise and global perspective put us in a position to support businesses and communities alike in their transition towards electrification and decarbonization.

With the guidance of our partners and our experts, people, cities and businesses can discover and apply cutting-edge progressive solutions, unlock new opportunities, and reach their goals for sustainable development for the benefit of everyone, everywhere.
