“We are guiding Italy through the path towards the energy transition and electrification of consumption in order to grow while creating value for the generations of tomorrow."

Nicola Lanzetta, Head of Country Italy

Our Sustainable DNA

The only possible energy is sustainable energy, for the environment and for people. That's why we are committed to creating shared value for everyone, in every area of our activity.

Our history

Our journey begins in the past, but its most important chapters will be  written in the future. It’s a story of a steadfast commitment to a country capable of continuous improvement, with the same energy and drive as the first day. Come with us and  discover 60 years of Enel.

1960s: Access to electricity

At the height of the economic boom, Italians were looking for new comforts in household appliances. With a major electrification project, Enel transported electricity everywhere, from the Alpine valleys to the islands. Today we continue to bring energy to locations around the world that still do not have access to electricity.

1970s: Diversification

The 1973 oil crisis led to austerity and the National Energy Plan. Savings and efficiency became key issues, as did the need to further diversify sources. Today we are leaders in the energy transition, on the path to decarbonisation and supply independence.

1980s: Sustainability

In 1987, the Brundtland Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development introduced the concept of “sustainable development”. Enel established itself as a pioneer of sustainability. Today our Open Power approach is a new model of human- and environmentally-friendly development.

1990s: Internationalization

The World Wide Web and globalization. The progressive liberalization of the energy market led our Group to a reorganization, starting with a new corporate structure, up to our listing on the stock exchange and expansion abroad. Today our Group is a multinational company present in over 30 countries across 5 continents.

2000s: Digitalization

The digital revolution: everything is faster and more connected. Our Group began the digitalization of its assets starting with the plan to install next-generation meters. Today we are upgrading infrastructures, making them increasingly innovative and resilient.

2010s: Renewables

Climate change and the need for more responsible choices drove the global community towards renewable energy. Our Group quickly established itself as a global leader with the birth of Enel Green Power. Today we count more than 1,200 renewable energy plants installed worldwide and several firsts along with cutting-edge technologies.

2020s: Electrification

The decade of electrification: a revolution in the world of energy that has opened up new opportunities. We are leading this important transformation, made possible thanks to the increasing use of electricity produced from renewable sources. Our business plan calls for the complete abandonment of fossil fuels by 2040, ten years ahead of the UN’s Net Zero goal.
