At Endesa we are convinced that electric mobility plays a key role in the change towards a more sustainable energy model. That is why we want our employees to take part in this transformation and to become ambassadors of a new energy culture.
In December 2017 we closed the third edition of the Electric Mobility Plan for Employees (PMEE for its Spanish acronym), with a total of 534 employees of the company who already enjoy the advantages of electric mobility and to drive a 100% electric car in their particular life, what supposes almost a 7.2% of the sales in the national market. During the time that the plan has been running, which started with its first edition in 2015, these vehicles covered more than 7 million kilometers, avoiding the emission into the atmosphere of more than 955 tonnes of CO2 recurrent each year.
One of the main goals of this plan is to gradually eliminate the barriers to entry that consumers have with regard to any new technologies and which, in the specific case of electric vehicles, are related to the autonomy of the batteries; the charging infrastructure and the actual price of the vehicle. The company has managed to offer its employees a value proposal that helps to overcome each of these barriers.
The advantages offered by this programme for employees are:
- Agreements with different electric car manufacturers and help installing a domestic charging point.
- Help financing the vehicle.
- Incentives for employees to take part with their electric vehicle.
- Charging infrastructure in the company's main headquarters.
- Reserved parking space at their workplace.
Thanks to the contribution of Endesa’s employees, this plan has already received numerous awards and was selected as the Climate 2016 Project by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and the Environment, in recognition of its contribution towards reducing CO2 emissions.
