The Benefits of the Circular Economy

Enel X takes inspiration from the principles of the Circular Economy. These principles represent a new paradigm. In the economy of the future, the use of raw materials is reduced to a minimum, the use of renewable materials and secondary prime materials prevails and the solutions offered are used for as long as possible and to their greatest capacity. This is due to another tectonic change: the reinvention of consumption patterns to obtain green energy.

5 pillars of circular economy

The circular economy is based on five pillars which define the areas and methods of use:

Sustainable inputs

Using renewable energy and renewable, recyclable and biodegradable materials in consecutive life cycles.

Life extension

Design and production involving extension of the product life cycle by companies. The value that would otherwise be lost by wasting materials and energy is retained and even enhanced by repairs, updates, regeneration or remarketing.

Product as a service

The producing company remains the owner of the asset, designed for longevity, and offers clients a service that often includes not only the use of the product, but also further related benefits (training, assistance, etc.)

Sharing Platforms

Promoting the use of platforms for collaboration among asset users and owners to help consumers make savings and earn profit from better use of resources.

End of life

Creating production and consumption systems where assets previously regarded as waste are reused as input for new processes.

The circularity score of our products

Marginal components of the Circular Economy are present.
There is a partial use of renewable materials and a preliminary integration of the Circular Economy principles in supplying the service.
This guarantees the most sustainable of methods, including during the phases of consumption and product recovery. The principles of the Circular Economy are also present - albeit partially - in the supply method.
This guarantees the use of almost totally renewable prime materials in the production process, together with an integration of the principles of Circular Economy in the supply method.
The products and services in this solution have high levels of circularity for the majority of the pillars and dimensions under analysis.

The circular city and Enel X

Can you imagine the city of the future other than circular? Waste will have to be reduced with the help of circular product design, and renewable energy will have to become more common for communities and government buildings. Energy efficiency will be imperative for all energy-efficient equipment.

The development of Circular Economy

The Circular Economy is rapidly transforming from a desirable concept into a reality that we will see at every step of our lives. For the pace of change to increase, more and more public and private entities need to measure, monitor and accelerate what they are already doing towards circularity.
