Enel X Romania, a subsidiary of the Enel Group’s advanced energy services business line, Enel X, partnered with the Mega Image retailer extending the national e-Mobility infrastructure by installing 72 electric vehicles charging points in Bucharest and in other 11 localities.
Of these, 46 Enel X charging points have been installed at Mega Image supermarkets in Bucharest, 18 in Ilfov county (Mogoșoaia, Popești Leordeni, Jilava, Voluntari, Otopeni, Chitila, Bragadiru, Corbeanca), 4 in Timiș county (Timișoara, Dumbrăvița), 4 in Giurgiu and Vrancea counties. With these units, the Enel X Romania network increases to over 154 EV charging points in more than 20 localities in the country.
“The sales of electric and hybrid vehicles in Romania are constantly increasing and we are very happy to come and meet the users’ needs by extending our e-mobility infrastructure with new EV charging points in Bucharest and other four counties. Our partnership with Mega Image will further improve access to charging infrastructure for more adopters of electric mobility, following our pledge to enable transportation anywhere in the country in a cleaner and more sustainable way. In the same time, it accelerates the green mobility transition and strengthens our goals for the zero-emission mobility and electrified transportation”, said Daniel Ortiz, General Manager of Enel X Romania.
“Caring for the environment remains one of our main concerns and we are proud to have the opportunity to get involved in impact projects for a sustainable future. We want to encourage the communities we belong to adopt responsible behaviours and ensuring an infrastructure for electric cars is an investment in our future, of all of us”, said Adrian Nicolaescu, VP marketing, e-commerce, communication and sustainability Mega Image.
The charging infrastructure installed is based on the new, intelligent charging solutions of the Enel X global business line. The partnership with Mega Image involves the installation of 5 JuicePump charging stations and another 31 JuicePole.
The JuicePump solution allows the charging of up to 80% of the battery level in about 25 minutes, depending on car model and specifications. The JuicePole units have an available power of 2 x 22 kW AC, each allowing the charging of up to 40% of the battery level in 30 minutes, also depending on the car model and specifications.
Enel X Romania also covers the electric mobility charging needs for home or office, offering charging stations, installation services and software applications through which customers can monitor and control their own charging devices.
Users will be able to recharge their vehicles at the Enel X Romania charging points using the JuicePass mobile app. The app can be downloaded from Google Play or App Store, and an installation guide can be accessed on the enelx.ro website.
Drivers can check the locations and status of Enel X charging points on an interactive map either on the JuicePass app, or on the website, here. They can see, in real time, if a charging station is available, occupied or in maintenance, as well as if it is a fast or ultra-fast one, the charging cable type, power, accessibility and distance to reach it. For customization, the users of electric vehicles will be able to associate one or more car models and, based on the information entered, they will receive real-time data on the duration and need for recharging or on the remaining range.
Enel X Romania installs charging infrastructure on the premises of “Recharge Partners”, including shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants and hotels that want to attract electric car users. The installation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure comes at no cost to the company’s Recharge Partners in exchange for the availability of parking areas.
The company is also offering a similar service to municipalities that are interested in improving air quality by encouraging electric mobility. Enel X Romania helps local authorities to identify the most appropriate solutions and provides the installation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure at no cost, on public parking spaces.
