In 2015, we launched ecaR (Endesa self-charging club), a pioneering initiative in Spain to support e-mobility. This project was launched in Majorca, with 6 fast charging points co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It isaimed at private customers with their own electric vehicles, vehicle fleets or rent-a-car customers who rent electric vehicles to visit the island.
Promotion and dissemination
In 2012, Endesa launched www.endesavehiculoelectrico.com is a specialised e-mobility website where customers can find out more about the benefits of these vehicles, how they are charged and the different projects we take part in, such as ZEM2ALL or ecaR, and the commercial e-mobility offer.
As provider of these services, we take part in trade fairs and events, such as Expoelectric, Conama, Faconauto, Green Cities, etc., as a way to promote electric vehicles.
Our Sustainable and secure mobility plan, with more than 20 initiatives (fleet electrification, car sharing, carpooling, training in efficient and safe driving, etc.), is particularly noteworthy. It promotes sustainable and safe mobility among employees, vehicle fleets, suppliers, customers and society in general.
This plan includes the Employees E-mobility Project that we launched in 2015 and which offers our employees a complete mobility solution:
- Beneficial agreements with a wide range of electric car manufacturers (BMW, Nissan, Renault, Kia, Mitsubishi and Audi).
- Installation of a charging point to promote night-time charging.
- Guaranteed parking space in workplaces.
- Vehicle financing facilities.
- Optional economic incentive for participation in these initiatives and their dissemination.
In all, 150 Endesa employees are now adhered to this plan.
Endesa actively participates in developing new e-mobility solutions, promoting the development of fast charging, agreements with electric car manufacturers and our presence in consortia and projects with international scope.
Fasto V2G (Vehicle to Grid). Development of a two-way electric charger, capable of charging and discharging a vehicle depending on electric system requirements.
Sunbatt. It studies a possible second useful life for used batteries in electric cars, so that they do not end up in landfills.
Zeus. Project that studies the feasibility of urban electric buses which are more economic and efficient.
Victoria Project (Vehicle Initiative Consortium for Transport Operation and Road Inductive Applications). We implemented this project in 2015, together with a consortium of four other companies and three research organisations, to develop the first dynamic-induction electric charging rail in Spain. It will allow charging the vehicle’s battery while on the move.
The largest e-mobility demo project in Spain is called the ZEM2ALL (Zero Emission Mobility to All) project. Its results have just been published after four years of work. We spearheaded this project together with Mitsubishi, and it has made it possible to assess the impact in terms of polluting emissions and energy consumption within a community.
We have also presented the results of the Green eMotion Project, launched by the European Commission to encourage e-mobility in Europe in 2011. After four years of operation, the project has developed and tested a European brand that brings together all shareholders to achieve a trouble-free, profitable and interoperable e-mobility ecosystem.
