Italy’s biggest utility Enel announced on Thursday its plans to build over 2 million DC electric vehicle (EV) chargers across North America, 10,000 of which will be deployed in the United States. U.S. retailer Walmart has also announced last week it would build its own EV charging stations by 2030, following a pledge by Biden to build a network of 500,000 public EV chargers nationwide. The Biden administration announced the final rules for the $7.5. billion federal programme, which requires the chargers be manufactured domestically.
Enel is an Italian multinational energy company that has been expanding its business in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in recent years. Enel’s EV charging business operates under the brand name Enel X Way.
Enel X Way provides a range of EV charging solutions, including residential, commercial, and public charging stations. It also offers smart charging services that allow customers to optimize their charging experience and reduce costs.
Enel X has a global presence and operates EV charging networks in several countries, including Italy, Spain, Romania, Chile, and the United States. In the US, Enel X’s EV charging business is known as JuiceBar.
Currently, the company operates in 16 countries, and manages nearly 430,000 charging points, both directly and through roaming agreements in place around the world. As a global platform for e-Mobility, the company is focused on developing flexible charging technologies and solutions to improve the customer experience and to enable the electrification of transport for consumers, businesses, cities and public administrations.
