Agreement envisages the delivery of 20 charging points for electric vehicles within the Vatican City.
Rome, June 10th, 2019 ‑ Promoting sustainable mobility in the Vatican City is the objective of the agreement signed by Enel X, the Enel Group’s global business line dedicated to innovative products and digital solutions, and the Governorate of the Vatican City State, which provides for the supply of 20 charging points. The first 12 charging points have already been installed, while the remaining eight are being delivered. Specifically, Enel X is supplying the Vatican City with pole stations, installed in public areas, each with two 22 kW charging points that enable two electric vehicles to be charged at the same time.
“The installation of the first Enel X’s charging infrastructure in the Vatican City demonstrates how necessary it has become to prioritise sustainability and environmental protection when selecting from different mobility options,” said Alessio Torelli, Head of Enel X Italy. “We are confident that this decision will serve as an example and further contribute to the spread of electric vehicles in Italy. To promote the transition to electric mobility, we are creating a capillary network of charging infrastructure and today we have taken another important step, underscoring our constant commitment in that direction.”
Enel X is continuing to implement Italy’s plan for charging infrastructure, which envisages the installation of a network of public stations across the country. The plan’s objective is to install 14,000 charging points by 2020, rising to 28,000 by the end of 2022. To date, over 6,000 new charging points have already been installed.
In the public sphere, Enel X has also signed agreements with over 900 Italian municipalities, while in the private sector it has signed partnerships with leading car manufacturers and installed charging points in major shopping centres.
