IVECO, a brand of Iveco Group N.V. (MI: IVG) and a pioneer in the commercialisation and manufacturing of vehicles powered by alternative fuels, announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Enel X, the Enel Group company dedicated to developing and selling innovative energy services and solutions for the electrification of consumptions and #mobility.
Under the terms of the non-binding MoU, #Iveco and #enelx plan to explore a possible collaboration that will unlock the potential of e-mobility for commercial vehicles in Europe, with a focus on light commercial vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles and buses. The two companies will assess how #Iveco electric trucks can support the transition of Enel’s fleet to zero emission vehicles, while examining new joint opportunities in other transport segments.
The collaboration also aims to develop a joint offer addressing the e-mobility of commercial fleets, including but not limited to recharging infrastructure for light and heavy commercial vehicles. #Iveco and #enelx will leverage on their impressive Research & Development and technical expertise to evaluate the interoperability of the Enel X charging infrastructure with IVECO e-vehicles, and the potential joint development of advanced services (e.g., smart charging and V2G, Vehicle-to-Grid).
“We have embarked on a path towards zero CO2 emissions, where electrification is a fundamental enabler for achieving the objectives of the entire commercial vehicle sector,” commented #lucasra, President #truck Business Unit, #Iveco Group. “We are fully committed to this path, and the MoU that we are signing today with #enelx marks the beginning of a strategic collaboration for #Iveco with one of the most advanced players in the energy sector. We are confident that this will create opportunities to further accelerate the energy transition we are driving.”
“Enel X aims to support the decarbonization of Cities through innovative and sustainable solutions based on two pillars: electrification and digitalization. We have played an active role for more than a decade, in particular in public transport electrification, offering value added services for more than 3,000 electric buses,” commented #valeriovadacchino, Global Head of e-Bus in #enelx. “Partnerships like this one with #Iveco Group - a global leading clean vehicles’ producer - are key for us to accelerate energy transition of transport sector that still provides a large contribution of emissions in urban areas.”
