“Enel is committed to the renewable energy sector and researching and developing new environmentally friendly technologies.”
We manage around 37 GW of installed capacity from water, wind, geothermal, solar, biomass and co-generation plants in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania. Enel is the most technologically diversified company operating in the global renewables sector.
We were the first in the world to replace traditional electromechanical meters – as used in Italy – with “smart” electronic meters, enabling real-time usage readings and remote contract management. This innovative measuring system is critical for the development of intelligent grids, smart cities and electric transport.
Business and shareholders
In 2016, Enel generated a total of about 262 TWh of electricity, distributing 426 TWhover its own grids and selling 263 TWh. Company revenue totalled 70.6 billion euros, with an ordinary EBITDA of 15.2 billion euros. Enel also sold 10.6 billion m3 of gas.
Listed in 1999 on the Milan stock exchange, Enel is among the Italian companies to have the largest number of shareholders, including both retail and institutional investors. Enel’s largest shareholder is the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance. In addition to Enel, other Group companies are listed on the world's most important stock markets. Thanks to its code of ethics, sustainability report, policy of respect for the environment, and the adoption of international best practices on transparency and corporate governance, Enel counts the largest international investment funds, insurance companies, pension funds and ethical funds among its shareholders.
New corporate identity
We launched our new global corporate identity on 26th January 2016 and simultaneously unveiled the new logos for Enel Green Power and Endesa.
The new brand strategy is the incarnation of the “Open Power” approach announced in November 2015 at the Capital Markets Day in London, with “openness” as the keystone of the group’s strategic and operational approach.
“Open Power means: opening energy access to more people; opening the world of energy to new technologies; opening energy management to people; opening energy to new uses; and opening to more partnerships”
Our new face represents Enel’s identity: a modern, open, flexible and responsive utility company, ready to lead the energy transition. The attractive and colourful logo is inspired by the principles of “Open Power” and reflects the diversity of the energy spectrum, the multifaceted nature of a group present in more than 37 countries, and the increasingly broad range of services it offers.
Where we are
As a truly global business, Enel is perfectly placed to open power around the world. Our global reach extends from Europe to North America, Latin America, Africa and Asia. We connect hundreds of millions of people to more reliable and increasingly sustainable power, supplying the largest customer base of any European energy company.
We have a very large presence in Europe: we operate along the entire energy chain, from generation to sale to end users in Italy, Spain, Slovakia and Romania; we produce in Russia, Greece and Bulgaria, and sell electricity and gas in many other countries on the continent, from the Atlantic to the Baltic.
We are one of the largest energy companies in the Americas, with power generation plants of all types across 11 countries from Alberta in Canada to the central Andes. We supply energy to some of the largest cities in South America: Rio de Janeiro, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and Lima.
We produce electricity in Morocco and South Africa, where in 2015 we won the award of “Investor of the year” for our various projects in the renewable energy sector. This development will continue in other countries in Africa, Asia and Oceania, with operations already up and running in Zambia, India, Indonesia and Australia.
By combining our unique scale and reach with new opportunities in a more connected world, we are shaping the future of energy.
