Endesa targets 507 electric vehicle recharging points in Spain and Latin America

Greentech Lead America: Endesa is planning 507 electric
vehicle recharging points in Spain and Latin America. The company installed 329
in 2011 and the rest will be installed this year.

The company is in talks with manufacturers, suppliers and
administrations to install new recharging points on public roads, garages, car
parks and private centers.

Endesa’s involvement with the Government’s e-mobility
project, the Movele Plan, has driven the installation of recharging points on
the streets and in garages in cities like Seville, Barcelona and Madrid in

Endesa has installed recharging points in other parts of
Spain, including Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Córdoba. Endesa has installed
313 electric vehicle recharging points in Spain.

Endesa’s objective in 2012 is to complete its Strategic
Sustainability Plan guaranteeing e-mobility. The company plans to install
another 107 recharging points throughout Spain, and have a total of 420
recharging points by the end of 2012.

Endesa is also planning to launch e-mobility in Latin
America. Via the company’s distributor in Chile, Chilectra, Endesa installed
seven recharging points there last year, including the first rapid recharging
point in Latin America. A further 14 recharging points are scheduled to be
installed in 2012, which will bring the total in the country to 21.

Condensa, Endesa’s distributor in Colombia, installed
eight electric vehicle recharging points in 2011. Endesa will install 52
recharging points in the country in 2012. Brazil and Argentina are the other
two countries where Endesa will introduce e-mobility in 2012.

In Europe, Endesa is part of the Green eMotion consortium
and is the only Spanish company involved in the ELVIRE consortium aimed at
developing the necessary technology, solutions and services to enable on-going
interaction between drivers, their power suppliers and the smart grid.

Endesa is taking part in the Zem2All project, a 60
million euro initiative which will test the new services and advantages offered
by e-mobility in cities on a mass scale.
