Where innovation takes shape
Our global hubs and labs work hand in hand with startups and SMEs to develop technological solutions and conduct pilot projects by giving access to our global industrial assets, laboratories, experts and relevant data, as well as our network of over 70 million customers. This allows solvers to be supported throughout the entire process and emphasizes our open power mindset.
When the test phase has been completed, the new solutions and business models are scaled up internationally, making full use of Enel’s global network.
