Rome, Misano September 17th, 2021 - Enel and MotoE™ renew their synergy for another three seasons, consolidating a successful partnership which began with the inception of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup in 2019. The Enel Group confirms its role as Title Sponsor of the Cup as well as Sustainable Power Partner of the FIM MotoGP World Championship. Enel X, the Enel Group’s global business line offering services that accelerate innovation and drive the energy transition, will be the Official Smart Charging Partner of the Cup until 2024 by providing smart, tailored electric bike charging solutions. The agreement also envisages that the partnership may extend through the 2025-2026 season.
"We are very pleased to announce the extension of the partnership with the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, a further step that underlines how important it is for Enel X to continue to develop innovative technologies for eMotorsports," said Enel X CEO Francesco Venturini. "The challenge is to combine the adrenaline of the track with the sustainability concept behind the event and right from the beginning of the collaboration with MotoE we have understood that the championship represents the perfect environment in which to implement cutting-edge charging solutions that can be brought into everyday mobility, concretely contributing to the electrification of transport. Continuing along this path in the coming years is, therefore, the natural consequence of the good things we have done so far."
"We're delighted to continue our partnership with Enel as both Title Sponsor for MotoE and Sustainable Power Partner of MotoGP,” added Marc Saurina, Senior Director of Global Commercial Partnerships at Dorna Sports. “Since MotoE began in 2019, we've gone from strength to strength creating a competitive, exciting and important series that is true to its values and those of close, competitive racing - making a perfect match with Dorna's ESG strategy. We're looking forward to continuing our partnership to take MotoE to even greater heights, and working together on sustainability as Enel continues to play a vital role in the whole paddock as our Sustainable Power Partner."
In the Misano Adriatico leg, as in all the other rounds of the Cup, Enel X is providing the JuiceRoll Race Edition, the new charging infrastructure specifically designed and developed for MotoE, which has been used right from the first race of the current season, on May 2nd, 2021 in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain). The JuiceRoll Race Edition is an innovative charger with internal storage and two interconnected units, namely a semi-mobile unit (SMU) and a mobile unit (MU), which can charge an electric motorcycle in about 40 minutes. The SMU supplies energy to recharge the electric motorcycles with the support of a system of solar panels, working directly in the area of the ePaddock; the MU on the other hand allows the motorcycles to be recharged while in the pit lane and on the starting grid. Specifically, the MU allows for a final seven-minute charge on the starting grid, allowing the bikes to cover more distance than in previous seasons. During the charging session in the ePaddock, the JuiceRoll Race Edition can supply bikes with up to 1 MW spread over 20 chargers, requiring only 100 kW from solar panels and the grid under normal operating conditions, thanks to the integrated storage unit.
