New partnerships with the German energy company Innogy, Dutch EV network operator Allego and Bosch GmbH have helped Enel X to triple its number of public electric vehicles charging systems.
Enel X now has more than 30,000 public charging points. This is roughly a threefold increase from about 10,500 points already available.
With Allego, Bosch and Innogy, Enel X has kicked started an eRoaming connectivity initiative.
This means users of Enel X’s JuicePass app can leverage the Hubject e-mobility app without signing new contracts in Germany and Benelux.
Enel X users will be able to view information on the location of the charging points, the available power, the type of connector, real-time availability and roaming prices.
This means customers of Enel now have access to 15,000 chargers operated by Allego in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the UK and 5,000 units operated by Bosch and Innogy in Germany.
Amongst the ones operated by Allego, over 1,000 are fast chargers (50 to 175KW) and 200 are ultra-fast (175 to 350KW).
Bosch operates 300 fast chargers.
The Enel subsidiary has plans to increase its network of public and private charging points to approximately 736,000 by 2022 from around 100,000 today. The main aim is to support the uptake of EVs and the decarbonisation of the transport sector.
Enlit Europe will gather in Milan between 30 November and 02 December 2021 and will feature innovative companies accelerating decarbonisation at Europe’s largest gathering of companies driving and leading the energy transition. Are you going to be there?

Francesco Venturini, Enel X CEO, said: “Enel X is offering EV drivers a smooth charging experience throughout Europe without having to worry about where to fill up their electric vehicles abroad or sign up for contracts with other providers.
“We have finalised this project in all safety and looking ahead, we will continue to launch similar eRoaming initiatives to foster economic recovery through our sustainable business model. Towards this aim, we will also be leveraging on the vast opportunities offered by the Hubject network, with a view to create a true pan-European electric highway that will drive Europeans through this challenging period towards a truly open society.”
