The Enel Group has restructured its global electric mobility business line, formerly known as Enel X e-Mobility, which is now known as Enel X Way. Enel is a Fortune 200 energy company that plans to decarbonize its business by 2040, and its new global business, Enel X Way, will focus exclusively on developing EV charging solutions and services to accelerate the adoption of EVs for consumers, companies, cities, and governments. The business is currently active in 17 countries across North and South America, Europe, and Asia and manages over 320,000 public and private charging ports directly and through roaming agreements.
Elisabetta Ripa has become the global Enel X Way CEO. Before heading Enel X Way globally, Elisabetta Ripa led Enel’s Open Fiber business and has held numerous management positions within the telecom industry. She’s led mergers and acquisitions and was recognized as one of Forbes’ "most successful women” in Italy in 2019. She currently serves on the board of Telenor, a leading telecommunications company in the Nordics and Asia that serves 182 million customers.
In North America, Enel X Way is headquartered in the heart of the Bay Area in San Carlos, California and will support the rapidly increasing demand for electric vehicles and smart EV charging infrastructure with its portfolio of EV charging solutions, including the award-winning JuiceBox, which this year was recognized by CNET, Car and Driver and others as the “best overall EV charger.” According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, EV sales in North America were up 88% in Q4 2021, bringing the EV share of new car sales to 6.8% that quarter – the highest yet for the region. With more than 110,000 charging stations deployed across North America, EV drivers plug into an Enel X Way charging station every 2.6 seconds, and since launching its flagship consumer product in 2014, JuiceBox customers have avoided more than 510 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
