Slovenské Elektrárne Goes Full Electric

Published on Monday, 2 March 2015

Slovenské Elektrárne has Slovakia's largest full-electric fleet, something that the energy business achieved by following in the footsteps of other the Enel Group companies in Europe and Latin America that have embraced e-mobility and zero-emissions transport.

The business' electric corporate fleet now has 15 full-electric vehicles from a range of manufacturers, including five new Nissan LEAFs, the best-selling electric car in Europe. By the end of 2015 the company aims to double the number of electric vehicles it has for transporting employees around its power plants.

The corporate electric car sharing service is supported by a charging network that in October saw another six public stations installed near the business' premises in Bratislava, Nováky, Jaslovské Bohunice, Mochovce and Trencín. The charging stations are connected to the Enel Mobility Management (EMM) system and use state-of-art technology developed by the Enel Group that enables full charging of the vehicle battery in less than two hours.

The Group's full-electric fleetsare continuing togrow in Europe and Latin America. In Italy Enel Green Power and Enel Distribuzione have for some time used electric and hybrid vehicles for daily activity of employees working in plants and on the network. The latest development was the creation of an electric car sharing project for employees working at the Group's Rome headquarters, with 15 vehicles available for use for travel within working hours. Meanwhile in Spain, Endesa has incorporated 400 hybrid vehicles into its sales network fleet, the largest of its kind in the country.

The Group has broken other e-mobility records overseas. In Colombia, Codensa and Emgesa have made 16 electric cars and 48 electric bicycles available to its employees for daily use, while the E-Bike to Work commuting programme has seen more than 300 employees take 12,000 trips. In addition, Emgesa has purchased 15 electric cars and 34 electric motorcycles for its corporate fleet, as well as installing a full charging infrastructure, creating the country's largest green corporate fleet.
