e-transportation for smart cities
LATAM is transitioning to e-Mobility
Enel X in action: electric buses and charging points
Enel X is on site to meet the challenge: it has delivered or has won contracts to deliver financing, smart charging, infrastructure and/or energy services to over 1,300 electric buses in the LATAM region.
Enel X Colombia has won two contracts to deliver six electro-terminals and 401 electric buses to TransMilenio public transportation operator in Bogota.
Between them, the six electro-terminals will have a total of 473 smart charging points with capacity to recharge 870 electric buses. Five electro-terminals will be operational by the end of 2021, and the sixth will be inaugurated in 2022. In Chile, Enel X provides smart charging infrastructure for 435 e-buses that circulate on the streets of Santiago, with a total of 11 electro-terminals, 40 smart bus stops and 245 chargers.
In Lima, Enel X has launched the first electric bus, which is equipped to gather data in real time: the information will be used to lay the groundwork for a nationwide electric transportation system in Peru.
Lima’s first e-bus was made possible thanks to a collaboration between Enel X, the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership (GSEP) and Canadian public utility Hydro-Québec.
In Uruguay, Enel X installed a smart charging monitoring system for 20 electric buses run by private operator CUCTSA. Enel X is also in the process of developing commercial relations aimed at achieving 100% electric transportation in Argentina, Brazil and Peru.
