The need to electrify public transport
Climate change, surging urbanization rates, technology and swelling demand for energy are just some of the elements that are altering the face of the modern city as lifestyles change and pose new challenges.
Going beyond electric buses
More than just electric buses, Enel X aims to bring about a radical transformation of cities, restructuring the urban environment through innovation, efficiency and integration.
These key factors find real-world applications in public transport, renewing not only vehicle fleets but also bus stops and shelters, which will become smart and multifunctional.
Juice Solutions street furniture
Our Juice Solutions range of urban furniture integrates e-mobility charging stations, combining efficiency and optimization of resources by taking advantage of infrastructure that is of necessity in place.
Our offering covers smart street lighting, interactive connectivity, and charging stations powered by clean, renewable energy.
Enel X JuiceLamp is a multifunctional streetlamp that combines cutting-edge public lighting, saving on energy, with two charging stations for electric vehicles. This comes in different styles, models, colors and heights, with the possibility of an extended package called Enel X JuiceLamp Plus, that adds cameras, environmental monitoring sensors and WiFi.
Our Enel X JuiceMedia combines one or two charging stations with a high-resolution screen that allows city administrators to interact with citizens and tourists, or which can be used to show advertising.
Again, other added-value solutions can be integrated into JuiceMedia, including WiFi, environmental sensors and security cameras.
Enel X JuicePark is a smart canopy of solar panels for car parks, providing charging with renewable energy for cars, scooters and bikes. This can be extended to charge electric buses.
The Santiago example
Electric buses in Santiago, run by MetBus, the city’s transit company, show what can be accomplished when we work together with a city government to modernize public transport.
Starting in 2016 with a single electric bus providing free transport around the center of Santiago, MetBus’s fleet now includes 435 electric buses, the majority of which were acquired through an agreement with Enel.
How we can help
Enel X can offer a complete, flexible and innovative package, including services ranging from the installation and management of charging infrastructure, such as batteries and charging stations, to energy supply from 100% renewable sources. We also offer fleet management and consumption optimization through innovative demand response technology.
