Towards this aim, the memorandum provides for the launch of a series of joint tests and pilot schemes for e-mobility in Rome and in other Italian cities and regions, following specific agreements with the relevant institutional bodies, and in for the medium-term development of the recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles in Rome. The memorandum also provides for agreements with electric vehicle manufacturers to field-test and distribute these vehicles in areas of common interest. The memorandum also foresees the evaluation of joint research and development project opportunities in Italy and on a Europe-wide basis.

“Enel has been working for a long time on the development of sustainable mobility, starting from the Italian capital, the first city in the country to launch a revolution in noise and emission-free mobility – stated Fulvio Conti, CEO of the Enel Group. “With our new partners and fellow travellers we will keep on researching the most intelligent and advanced solutions and standards to power the electric vehicle fleet, therefore encouraging the up-take of e-mobility which can contribute immensely to the improvement of the urban environment”.

“At Acea it is our aim to develop mobility solutions integrating renewable generation sources, starting with Commercity’s 5 MW photovoltaic plant, the largest urban photovoltaic system in Italy. Therefore, we are delighted to have signed this agreement today which will allow us to field-test solutions for an efficient, widespread recharging infrastructure with Enel” – stated Acea’s CEO Marco Staderini.
