2019 is getting off to an adrenaline-fuelled start as Formula E kicks off its first round of the year on the streets of Marrakesh on a 2.971 km track with 12 corners that winds its way from the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan into the very heart of the Moroccan city. Enel X, which is Official Smart Charging Partner for the 2018-2019 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, has developed an innovative new charging technology that will now enable the electric single-seaters to complete the race with just one charge. This has been made possible by new-generation batteries charged by JuicePump superchargers that boast an impressive 80 kW capacity yet weigh less than 200 kg apiece and so can easily be transported from one circuit to the next. However, the JuicePump superchargers aren’t confined to providing the power to allow Formula E drivers to unleash their prodigious talents. These superchargers are also part of the network that Enel X is installing in public areas. On Italian territory alone, a total of 7,000 columns will be installed by 2020 and 14,000 by 2022 as part of the National Plan.
