Endesa X, Endesa’s new business line that offers added value services and innovative technological solutions in the world of energy, has signed an agreement with Saba and Saba Barcelona Bamsa, renowned parking garage managers, to deploy up to 400 recharging points in their network of parking garages. The agreement includes the implementation of the recharging points in 36 parking garages, 18 in the Saba network and 18 in the Bamsa network (public-private company owned 60% by Saba and 40% by the City Hall of Barcelona). Saba and Bamsa assume the development and investment of this recharging network that Endesa will operate.
The initial deployment of the agreement includes starting the operation of 144 recharging points, that are now operating, in 36 parking garages in 14 cities in Spain (Madrid, Barcelona , A Coruña, Alicante, Marbella and Pamplona, among others).
All points will have the 22 kW (semi-fast) technology, allowing users to recharge 80% of their electric car battery in approximately 1 hour. In addition, they will have a universal connector for this type of charging, and will be available to all customers—both one-time customers and those with passes—that park at the Saba parking garages.
The infrastructures deployed are connected to Endesa’s digital platform that will allow the interoperability and remote control of the points. Thanks to the ecaR cell phone application available on iOS and Android, users will be able to find recharging stations, find out their status and even pay with their credit card without needing to be an Endesa customer.
The agreement forms part of the Public Access Infrastructure Development Plan for Electric Cars that Endesa presented in mid-November—the most ambitious plan to promote electric mobility that has been implemented in our country: 108,000 public and private recharging points for electric vehicles in the next five years, of which more than 8,500 points will be of public access.
For Saba, this project gives continuity to the effort made in recent years to incorporate different models of mobility and new added value services in parking garages, designed as hubs of services. It is aware that adapting to new times means committing to change and introducing new technologies in order to improve customer service. In this regard, the electric car boom is reflected through a greater number of parking spaces for this type of car, in anticipation of the demand. Thanks to this agreement with Endesa, the Saba group will increase the recharging points in its parking garages by also taking advantage of the subsidies provided for in the Alternative Mobility Support Plan from the Ministry of Energy (Movalt Plan).
Endesa, which maintains a firm commitment to sustainable development, is very aware of the energy challenges that society is facing and promotes electricity as an energy vector that is capable of reconciling the increasingly demanding environmental and efficiency requirements for citizens’ energy needs. Electric mobility is fundamental in the energy transition. Endesa’s response to this paradigm shift in the energy sector is “Endesa X”, a new business line with which it wishes to be an active agent in the energy transformation, and with which it aspires to change the rules of the game, leading the change toward electrifying the fleet of vehicles in Spain and democratizing electric mobility.
Saba is a renowned industrial operator in developing solutions in the scope of urban mobility, specialising in the management of parking garages. With a staff of over 2,300 people, the Group is present in 9 countries of Europe and Latin America and has 378,000 parking spaces, distributed across 800 centres.
The company, focussed on high end innovation and new commercial strategies, incorporates intelligent services associated with the mobility of people and cars into its parking garages. It was a pioneer in the installation of the VIA T and charging by using QR technology. It also has a website where 100% digital products can be purchased. In addition, it has promoted new systems of control, the automation of discounts at cash registers and the development of service.
