Enel X, intelligent platforms to make energy consumption more efficient
From Utility Bill Management (UBM) to Energy Management Systems (EMS): through its intelligent digital platforms Enel X is helping clients understand, optimise and manage their energy consumption in a way that is efficient and sustainable

Sustainability, efficiency, digitalisation and flexibility: these are the four key words to understand the transformation taking place in the energy sector. It is a revolution that is driven by the fight against climate change and one that is shifting traditional paradigms. Electricity is the most efficient, sustainable and competitive form of energy for tackling some of the toughest challenges of our time: the decarbonisation of the economy, the reduction of pollution in our cities, improving energy efficiency in transport and buildings, as well as the digitalisation of the networks.
By 2050 the global demand for electricity will have increased by 62%, and investment in digitalization in the sector is set to grow by 40% between now and 2025.
Furthermore, in 2050 the productive capacity providing flexibility services to the system will make up around 15% of the total energy mix (source: Bloomberg New Energy Finance).
Renewable sources, the empowerment of the consumer and the new digital platforms are invaluable allies in the mission to achieve decarbonisation. What’s more, businesses are the key players in this revolution. The energy transition is reshaping utilities’ traditional business models; innovation and digital solutions offer an opportunity to manage this complex situation. Enel X’s mission is to help clients transform energy into new opportunities, offering personalised, bespoke energy consulting to optimise consumption and generate value for its clients. Moreover, Enel X platforms enable clients to understand their own energy consumption.
