Eni, Enel plan work on electric mobility
Eni SPA and Enel, Italy’s largest electric power company, have signed a letter of intent covering cooperation on electric mobility.
The companies want to identify within about 6 months “the best solutions for charging electric vehicles at Eni stations” and to establish electric-mobility trial areas by the end of 2013.
The trials will involve installation of fast-recharge points using Enel technology for electric vehicles at service stations run by the oil company.
The charge points can power a vehicle using direct and alternating current in 20-30 min, according to a press statement.
