Enel X Opens HPC Charger at a Store in Rome
Enel X has opened Rome’s first area for the ultrafast charging of electric vehicles and the Central European Ultra Charging project’s first High Power Charging site, in collaboration with Volkswagen Group Italia. The Enel X Store at Corso Francia 212 offers energy efficiency technologies, financial services, and electric mobility solutions, as well as a refreshment area.
The Enel X Store on Corso Francia is the first urban ultrafast area with four HPC stations, enabling four vehicles to be charged at the same time. These are the CEUC project’s first four ultrafast stations in Italy, co-financed by the European Commission under the Connecting Europe Facility Transport 2017 call. Each charging point has an output of up to 350 kW and enables electric cars that are compatible with high-power charging to fully recharge in about 20 minutes. In addition to the ultrafast chargers, there is also a JuicePole, the 22 kW + 22 kW public charging station, and a JuiceMedia, the integrated digital screen with two charging stations, reserved for the test drives of the brands of Volkswagen Group Italia. Different solutions for a complete, convenient and fast charging experience that gives the opportunity to have a coffee in the store’s bar area while waiting, and to find out about and try Enel X’s sustainable technologies and products for the home and electric mobility.
These include Homix, the smart home solution with Alexa built-in, which allows users to control temperature, security, lighting and other devices in the home ecosystem easily, even using voice control and remotely; Enel X Sun Plug&Play, the innovative balcony-mounted photovoltaic system that is easy to install without the need for structural work, enabling users to contribute to their home’s energy needs with energy produced by the sun even when in the city, to power household appliances and other equipment, reducing energy costs by up to 20%; and JuiceBox, the domestic recharging station designed to ensure intelligent, safe and flexible recharging.
The Enel X Store in Corso Francia also offers energy efficiency products, such as heating and air conditioning systems; and Enel Energia’s solutions for managing electricity consumption. In addition, there are specific solutions such as JuiceAbility, which allows people to use the public infrastructure to recharge electric wheelchairs.
The Store also offers the opportunity to make bill payments, top-ups (soon to be available on the JuicePass app for filling up electric cars), shipments and information on activating Enel X Pay, the App and online account with a Mastercard and an Italian IBAN that enables all types of transactions to be carried out simply and intuitively: from the payment of utility bills, taxes and charges from public administrations participating in the pagoPA circuit, to SEPA transfers, peer-to-peer money exchanges and donations for charitable initiatives to voluntary sector associations. Enel X Pay also lets users open an account with a linked card for children aged between 11 and 17 and join the State Cashback Program without a SPID or App Io.
The store will host the 100% electric models from the Volkswagen Group Italia brands (Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, CUPRA, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles) in rotation, starting with Volkswagen ID.3, the car that marks the beginning of a new era of mobility. Specific activities are planned for both customers who have already chosen a Volkswagen Group car, and for those interested in discovering zero-emission mobility, with dedicated workshops, consultations and the possibility of test drives.
