, SEE Energy News

As part of its plan to build a wide charging infrastructure for electric vehicles across Romania, Enel X Romania, a subsidiary of Italian Enel Group, has installed and put in operation a network of 34 charging points in Bucharest and surrounding areas.

Head of Enel X Romania Marius Chiriac said that the sales of electric and hybrid vehicles is constantly increasing, even during the difficult period that we are facing, and in a context that sees the auto market massively decreasing overall. However, Enel is confident that the electric segment will maintain its ascending course in Romania. The new charging points will allow users of EVs in Romania more flexibility for their mobility needs, and help improve access to charging infrastructure for more adopters of electric mobility, following the pledge to enable transportation anywhere in the country in a cleaner and more sustainable way.

The charging infrastructure installed is based on the new, intelligent charging solutions of the Enel X global business line. The majority of the first series of charging points are 2×22 kW units, named JuicePole, which allow for the recharge of two electric vehicles simultaneously and for the charge of up to 40 % of the battery levels in 30 minutes, depending on the car model and specifications. The Enel X installed charging solutions account also for the fast charging JuicePump, which is 50 kW DC, 22 or 43 kW AC, and allows the recharge of two electric vehicles at the same time.
