Enel X and PwC together for corporate electric mobility
Enel X has signed an agreement with PwC Advisory to introduce e-cars into the consulting firm’s corporate fleet
Published on 24 January 2018
Enel X has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the PwC Advisory network present in 157 countries worldwide offering auditing and consulting services to companies. The goal of the agreement is to use tests and experimental projects to encourage the sustainable development of corporate transport, exploiting the potential of electric mobility to reduce both air pollution and fleet management costs.
Francesco Venturini - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Enel X - and Oliver Galea - Chief Executive Officer of PwC - have agreed on a preliminary study and analysis phase, followed by the implementation of pilot projects in the field, in total lasting about three years. The test applied to the PwC vehicle fleet aims to demonstrate how electric vehicles can be used successfully and profitably, even outside of the private and urban spheres. On average, a company car travels no more than 100 kilometres per day, well below the average range offered by the electric models currently on the market.
PwC will provide Enel X with its experience developing innovative solutions for the management of company fleets in the field of electric mobility and fleet management, thus allowing both companies to share their respective skills. The goal is to spread the culture of sustainable mobility among PwC’s network of customers in the Italian market.
As soon as the memorandum of understanding was signed, Enel X and PwC immediately set to work holding a workshop for 40 professionals from the two companies which was dedicated to design thinking activities, with the aim of outlining the project’s key features and best defining the customer experience. The workshop was attended by experts from PwC Italia’s customer practice, professionals from the sector of car leasing, PwC and Enel X technicians and university students who are passionate about electric mobility.
The agreement with PwC will allow us to identify and focus on companies’ electric vehicles usage needs and study specific solutions capable of responding to the growing demand for sustainable and economically advantageous mobility
We are very satisfied with the project launched today: it is one of the first examples of electric mobility being applied to a corporate context. I believe that this solution will fully meet the needs our network has expressed for flexible and dynamic mobility, while also providing the greater sustainability, efficiency and convenience offered by an electric fleet
The technology currently on the market already makes it possible to introduce electric cars to the majority of corporate fleets: this choice demonstrates an interest in protecting the environment and also opens up new opportunities
