Enel Distribuzione SpA and Hubject GmbH Sign Cooperation Agreement to Develop eRoaming Framework
Sep 29 14
The Enel Group, through its distribution subsidiary Enel Distribuzione SpA, and Hubject GmbH have signed a cooperation agreement whereby both parties will work together for the development of a Europe-wide eRoaming framework. Through eRoaming, electric vehicle drivers are enabled to charge on facilities that are not owned nor operated by the utility they are customers of. The common goal of the cooperation will be to enable electric vehicle drivers to charge their cars on around 5,000 facilities across an area spanning from Sicily to Lapland with each recharge being automatically billed to their utility customer accounts back at home. To foster eRoaming across Europe, Enel has developed EMM, the 'electric mobility management' system, an eRoaming platform supporting the Group's charging points as well as those recharge facilities owned or operated by other players in Spain, Italy, Romania and Greece. Altogether, EMM supports over 2,000 charging points. Hubject operates an European eRoaming platform since May 2013. Over 120 European platform participants share the aim to provide their customers with barrier-free access to public charging points for electric vehicles throughout Europe. Almost 3,000 European recharge facilities are already accessible via Hubject's eRoaming platform and identifiable through the 'intercharge' logo, the common European compatibility symbol of customer-friendly electric vehicle recharging and billing. Alongside Italy and Germany, several partners from Austria, the Benelux states, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland are part of the intercharge family. The cooperation between Enel and Hubject in the eRoaming domain is one of the main outcomes of Green eMotion, the EU research project on electric mobility grouping 43 partners from industry, the energy sector, electric vehicle manufacturers, municipalities, universities as well as research institutions.

Enel Distribuzione and Hera have reached a partnership agreement to launch a pilot smart-grid project. The agreement specifically aims at applying the technological solutions and the specific functions that Enel Distribuzione has already developed or is testing on its own grid, assessing their benefits and giving rise to a process that will transform the electricity grid into a two-directional operation Enel Distribuzione will bring its long experience and the know-how it has acquired in this field to the partnership, in order, for the first time in Italy, to build a smart grid on another distributor's network. By working with Hera they will thus create a de facto standard that will lead smart grid technologies in Italy.
