Italian energy supplier Enel will use its subsidiary Enel X Romania to set up a nationwide charging network for electric cars in Romania. According to their plans, some 2,500 charging points with capacities of between 22 and 150 kW should be available by 2023.
The first 300 charging points are to be installed next year, starting with the Romanian cities of Bucharest, Timisoara and Constanta. Enel is cooperating with supermarkets, restaurants and hotels, but also with municipalities. The company is expanding its offer to include the installation and maintenance of infrastructure free of charge, under the provision that their partners provide parking spaces. The total investment for this major project is estimated at 15 to 20 million euros.
