Enel X Ferrari carbon neutrality

Ferrari’s race towards carbon neutrality

Decarbonizing Ferrari’s Maranello factory with a new solar photovoltaic system, battery storage and fully off-grid car port

The need

Ferrari wants to increase its self-production of energy and reduce CO₂ emissions as part of an environmental and economic path towards sustainability. Carbon neutrality is the ultimate goal.

The solution

To meet Ferrari’s needs Enel X designed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system that will be installed on the rooftop of Ferrari’s famous factory in Maranello, Italy. Boosting the company’s self-production of energy while reducing CO₂ emissionsemissions was the main goal of the project. The solar PV system, comprised of more than 3,800 solar panels, will have a maximum capacity of 1,535 kWp that will cover part of the Ferrari premises’ electricity consumption.

In addition, Enel X will create a solar PV parking canopy that is completely off grid, combining the solar with a battery storage system to meet the charging needs of Ferrari’s new hybrid range and future full-electric vehicles. The charging performance will be monitored and shared through Enel X’s Energy Management System, which will display the data in real-time.

The benefits

Once running at full capacity, the entire project will save more than 18,500 metric tons of CO₂ over 25 years. The plant will be able to generate 1,626,802 kWh/year, helping to reduce emissions and meet the company’s carbon neutrality goals.
