Enel X has increased the number of EV charging points available to customers across Europe to 50,000.
The company has increased its EV chargers by kicking off eRoaming connectivity with North European EV charging point operator Last Mile Solutions, has·to·be and E.ON.
Enel X had only 30,000 EV charging points across Europe in early June.
The deal allows Enel X JuicePass app users to charge their EVs, without signing new contracts, in the charging points operated by Last Mile Solutions, has·to·be and E.ON, on a network of around 20,000 additional charging points in Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands.
EV drivers using Enel X’s platform are now able to travel from the Nordics through Germany, Austria and Switzerland on their trip to Italy without worrying about where to charge.
Enel X is expected to increase its network of public and private charging points made available worldwide to approximately 736,000 by 2022 from around 130,000 available today, with the aim to support the uptake of EVs and the decarbonisation of the transport sector.
Francesco Venturini, Enel X CEO, said: “Through our interoperability partners, as well as through our own network, we connect the entire Mediterranean area from the heel of Italy’s boot to the northern part of Europe, allowing our customers to start moving on European roads again and enjoy summer vacation with no hurdles.
“We do this by guaranteeing an increasingly widespread network and by developing new products that can meet the needs of cross-country mobility and fast and ultra-fast charging. Furthermore, we’ve recently reached a major milestone in our public charging network deployment plan in Italy, which now crossed the threshold of 10,000 charging points installed and operated by Enel X.”
