In 2015, we launched ecaR (Endesa self-charging club), a pioneering initiative in Spain to support electric mobility and sustainable transport and tourism.
We developed this initiative in Majorca, with 6 fast charging points aimed at private customers with their own electric vehicles, fleets or hire car customers that hire electric vehicles to visit the island.
Promotion and dissemination
Endesa is a pioneering company in terms of adopting a comprehensive approach to mobility, integrating initiatives in this regard that promote different business areas and segments.
We believe that the current mobility model needs to change, in order to combat climate change and to improve the quality of life of people, as well as to optimise the economic efficiency in the management of employees’ mobility within the company.
Our Sustainable and safe mobility plan includes 20 initiatives aimed at different stakeholders, always focusing on promoting a change in the way transport is used and promoting the electrification thereof.
Our initiative includes the Electric Mobility Plan for Employees which has enabled Endesa’s employees to enjoy the benefits of electric vehicles and to become the ambassadors of the mobility of the future.
As a result of the first editions of the plan, a total of 274 electric vehicles have been purchased, which accounts for 7% of the market share in Spain between 2015 and 2016. With this, we have prevented over 800 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere.
Endesa also launched a plan this year to electrify the fleet of representational vehicles of our senior staff members. The aim is for 4 in 10 vehicles in this segment to be hybrid or 100% electric within four years. We also promote sustainable mobility in the management of the company’s fleet, where almost 20% of the vehicles are already hybrid or electric.
For work-related travel, employees from various Endesa offices can use electric vehicles via the e-car sharing service. Approximately 100,000 km were covered with these during 2016.
At Endesa we actively take part in the development of electric mobility solutions: we foster the development of fast charging, we encourage agreements with electric vehicle manufacturers and we take part in consortiums and international projects.
Vehicle to Grid (V2G). This system enables the electric connection and flow between the grid and the vehicle, so it can be charged but also act as a generator, producing electricity for households or feeding the grid. At Endesa we collaborate with the Enel Group's initiatives to demonstrate the validity of this technology in international projects.
Fasto V2G (Vehicle to Grid). This is a bidirectional electric charger, capable of charging and discharging a vehicle depending on the requirements of the electrical system.
Sunbatt. This project studies the possible second service life for batteries used in electric vehicles, to prevent them from becoming disposable products.
Zeus. This project studies the feasibility of more efficient and economical urban electric buses. In this area, we have developed ULTRAFAST, an ultrafast 400 kW charger for heavy vehicles. The first was installed in Barcelona in collaboration with Metropolitan Transports of Barcelona (TMB). This system enables 80% of a bus battery to be charged in just 5 minutes.
Victoria Project (Vehicle Initiative Consortium for Transport Operation and Road Inductive Applications). We launched this project in 2015 together with a consortium of another four companies and three research organisations for the development of the first dynamic inductive charging lane for electric vehicles in Spain. The aim is to charge the vehicle while it is moving.
CIRVE (Fast charging points located along the Iberian EU Corridors). A European project with the participation of 8 institutions with the aim of deploying a network of 40 fast charging points in urban and peri-urban areas and boosting the existence of these infrastructures in Spain.
PALOMA (Prototype For Alternative Operation Of Mobility Assets). This project is aimed at the integration of a new fast charging system for electric buses and the analysis of its impact on the electric distribution grid. The proposal is financed by the CDTI via the FEDER-INNTERCONECTA 2016 Programme and it will be developed in Malaga.
We also took part in what was the largest electric mobility demonstration project in Spain: ZEM2ALL (Zero Emission Mobility to All). An initiative we headed together with Mitsubishi over four years and which enabled us to assess the impact in terms of contaminating emission levels and energy consumption within a community. Over the period in which the project took place, 4.6 million kilometres were covered with zero emissions and over 100,000 vehicle charging services were carried out which prevented the emission into the atmosphere of 330 TN of CO2.
