Enel X has become a 12.5% shareholder in Hubject, an e-mobility joint venture which includes leading players across the technology, automotive and utility sectors.

Hubject has developed an interoperable platform that enables EV drivers to charge their cars across a network of over 200,000 public charging points worldwide, without having to sign new contracts on top of the ones with their e-mobility Service Providers that use Hubject’s eRoaming services.

By entering the joint venture, Enel X can extend the interoperability of its European network beyond the 8,000 public charging points already available to its customers, with the possibility to access the joint venture’s overall network.

Enel X will also work within the partnership to expand Hubject’s charging network and further improve its technological features, with the aim to boost the penetration of electric mobility worldwide.

“The overall aim is to offer electric vehicle drivers the possibility to fill up their batteries without having to worry about who their provider is, or about being abroad,” said Francesco Venturini, Global Head of Enel X.

Enel X, a leading provider of smart charging solutions, has been rolling out its own public charging networks in Italy, Spain and Romania for a total of around 8,000 charging points, in line with its announced targets that also include the installation of private charging points. Overall, Enel X is expected to increase its number of public and private charging points worldwide to 455,000 by 2021 from around 60,000 today, with the aim to support the uptake of EVs and the decarbonisation of the transport sector. Towards this aim, Enel X has also closed several interoperability agreements to broaden the public charging network available to its customers throughout Europe, expanding its reach as e-mobility Service Provider into most of the EU countries.
