Innovation, sustainability are central to the business for Enel X
Climate change: a greater threat
This is gaining in importance because climate change threatens disruption on a scale that dwarfs that of the pandemic.
Tackling the climate emergency and building back green will require massive investments in infrastructure, from renewable power plants to charging networks for electric vehicles and from power-saving appliances to waste-free products...
The circular economy for Enel X
Boosting renewables: our answer
Enel X has a product portfolio that includes battery storage, charging infrastructure and Demand Response. This latter, which boosts the flexibility of the grid, is of growing importance as the necessarily intermittent supply from renewables plays a greater role in overall energy generation.
The profit opportunities it offers are also important in boosting installations of renewable power plants.

“Long Way Up”: the electric route through Latin America
Covid-19 also increased awareness of the need to protect the environment, particularly as regards the damage caused by transportation. e-Mobility is one clear answer. Enel X is leading the way with 140,000 charging points for electric vehicles available worldwide, including the first Pan-American charging corridor.
This runs through 11 countries from Ushuaia in southern Argentina to Ensenada in Mexico with 220 charging points for drivers to use. A trip along it on electric motorcycles ridden by two famous actors, Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, was the subject of “Long Way Up,” an 11-part documentary that’s available on Apple TV.
In summary, the Covid-19 crisis shows the importance of preparing to deal with the changing climate using the tools supplied by technology, innovation and sustainability. The world’s mood has been dark this year, but focusing on sustainability and the circular economy can lead us to a brighter future.
