The Vatican City is the latest country to move towards sustainable mobility. When it comes to sustainable mobility, there can be no doubt that the vehicle of the future, in every country, will be the one prefaced with an “e”. In fact, Enel X and the Governorate of the Vatican State City have signed an agreement for the lease of 20 charging stations for electric vehicles, free of charge (thanks to a loan for use arrangement), inside the Vatican walls. Of these, twelve stations have already been installed, while the remaining eight are being completed. Each “Pole Station”, as these innovative stations that can provide a full energy charge to two vehicles at the same time are called, has two 22kW charging points.
The installation of the first Enel X charging stations inside the Vatican City State demonstrates how necessary it has become to consider sustainability and safeguarding the environment as priorities when choosing from the various mobility options.
