For almost 60 years we have been powering Italy, bringing light, technology, innovation and progress to every corner of the country. On these foundations, we have evolved over time, building the skills that today make us world leaders in the sector, spearheading the energy transition.
For us, the electrification of consumption is the key to complete decarbonization and to achieving the Zero Emissions goal of the Paris Agreements, which as a Group we have brought forward by 10 years. We have strengthened our commitment, and plan to exit gradually from coal-driven generation by 2027 and gas by 2040.
The first prerequisite for achieving these goals is increasing generation from renewable sources. That is why our Strategic Plan includes over 70 billion euros in investments until the year 2030, to reach approximately 154 GW of installed capacity, three times that of 2020. Of this, approximately 7% will be guaranteed by Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), which, together with digitalization, are essential to making electricity grids increasingly stable and efficient.
94% of the investments we have planned for the 2022-2024 three-year period are aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which helped us define specific targets to pursue. In particular, SDG7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), prompted us to get directly involved with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), an important international non-profit that works closely with the UN to accelerate the achievement of this Goal by 2030.
Globally, we are also the leading private grid operator, with 75 million end users, and the private operator with the largest retail customer base, with more than 69 million customers. Through our unified platform, we offer innovative products and integrated services (developed with Enel X) for increasingly conscious energy consumption. This is our way of creating shared value for consumers, reducing their energy expenditure by up to 40% and their carbon footprint by up to 80%.
We also operate at an international level in the field of electric mobility. This is on three fronts: as an owner-operator of infrastructure and management services, as a supplier of physical technologies and software, and as a provider of mobility services (with technologies like "Vehicle to Grid"). We intend to continue innovating with the aim of developing new solutions for zero-emission mobility.
The fact that energy produced from renewable sources is becoming increasingly affordable will make it possible to multiply its uses: from transport to heating, from cooking to heavy industry. The electrification of consumption will mean people and their daily choices will become active agents of change. If the last ten years were the decade of the development of renewables, we are now in the decade of electrification. And just as we have done for over half a century, we are continuing to bring energy to people and communities, guiding our customers towards new energy uses, innovating and expanding our services, with a view to creating shared value.
