Brief project summary

With a memorandum of understanding between Enel, Acea and Roma Capitale the goal of the project is the installation in Rome of 100 new public charging stations dedicated to electric vehicles, in order to increase the capillarity of the charging network reaching target of over 300 public charging stations.

Short activity description

Planned activities are: geo-location study conducted with Roma Capitale , design of charging sites, projects approval and installation of charging stations.

Achieved impact

Actually in Rome there are about 600 electric vehicles circulating. All electric vehicle owners will benefit from the increased capillarity of the charging network. In addition, the extension of the network will act as a stimulus for the growth of electric mobility and therefore have a positive impact on air and noise pollution.

Is this project a best practice? Why?

The project is a best practice because by promoting electric mobility, Enel will bring an important environmental and sustainable benefit, contributing to improve the quality of life in the urban area.

What are the main lessons learned during implementation?

It is important that all stakeholders are involved in the development of the projects (Municipalities, local community, citizens, etc.)
