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.
Mobility accounts for about a third of energy consumption, and this is why transitioning to a local, highly efficient and zero emissions electric system is one of the main challenges in building sustainable cities. With the launch of the first 100% electric terminal in 2020, Bogotá took the first step on this path, and Enel companies in Colombia are pleased to be one of its strategic allies. In order to make Bogotá an electric mobility leader, the Aeropuerto electro-terminal is the second of a total of six that we will deliver to the capital by 2022, and a new milestone in our contribution to the country’s energy transition
