Aware that the world needs to generate clean energy to move towards a better tomorrow, Enel drives the ecosystem through Enel Green Power.
To get to know someone you must watch their history, what were their beginnings and what goals do they set for the future. Only in this way will you discover how real their words are today. Under this premise, at Enel we pride ourselves on pursuing a single goal: to offer reliable, affordable and sustainable energy, hence we created a division specialized in clean energy generation to drive our path towards a fair energy transition.
This story begins in Italy, specifically, in the 1960s. The Italian National Electricity Board (ENEL) was established in the second year of that decade to boost the country's growth. Our networks grew to the point of being distributed all over Europe.
Our passion for sustainability and for taking action for a better future has led us to become a participating member of the United Nations Global Compact, with a commitment to make a tangible contribution to 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are:
Access to clean and affordable energy.
Fostering innovation, sustainable industrialization, and resilient infrastructure.
Creating sustainable cities and communities.
Climate action, with a view to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
In the words of our Chairman and CEO, Francesco Starace "We are constantly working to improve the Group's governance and its environmental and social performance, using sustainability as an important guide in our choice of investments and industrial strategies."
The arrival of the war-related energy crisis and the approach of the new millennium gave us the opportunity to look at clean energy sources that no one else was paying attention to, resulting in a tangible effort in 2008 with our Enel Green Power division.
We produce energy from renewable resources and offer innovative and sustainable business solutions. As a pioneer in the field, we have created the world's first triple hybrid power plant (geothermal, photovoltaic and solar thermal). We are also working in the marine sector, exploring wave and tidal technologies.
Although our presence in the country is very recent, these years of collaboration have shown us the potential that exists in the country. Integrating sustainable practices, environmental protection and biodiversity into business strategies is a key factor in Enel's business plan; however, it is not the only way in which we solve energy problems. Today we are reaching out to all those companies and private organizations whose concern for the planet is as important as their business goals. We want to work with you!
With a combination of advanced storage and clean energy technologies, we can develop solutions for almost any type of business. If you are interested in bringing innovation, sustainability and maximum energy efficiency to your business, contact us. We'll be happy to help.
