Enel operates in over 30 countries with 1.9 million kilometers of power lines on four continents, with installed net capacity of over 90 GW.
Enel produces energy through a balanced mix of sources, in which a leading role is played by renewable sources (hydroelectric, wind, geo-thermoelectric, biomass, photovoltaic, etc.) and where fossil sources are diversified across natural gas, coal and oil.
Group distribution companies transport electricity in Italy, Romania, the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America on 1,865,671 km of power lines across two continents.
Electricity and gas market
The Group sales companies operate both on the regulated market, with controlled prices, and on the free market, satisfying all the needs of the Group’s 60,954,443 customers (55,996,359 of whom are on the electricity market and 4,958,084 on the gas market).
The exploration of and production from gas fields are currently focused on the development of the projects in the portfolio and on the search for new opportunities which can contribute to providing gas in the medium/long term to Enel power plants. In particular during 2015 Enel continued its commitment to projects in Algeria (the South East Illizi project, the Isarene project, the Msari Akabli project).
Enel Open Fiber (EOF)
In December 2015 Enel set up Enel Open Fiber to realize and manage ultra-broadband optical fiber infrastructure across Italy. On March 23, 2016 the company presented its strategic plan in line with the European Digital Agenda and the Italian Ultra-broadband Strategy. EOF will operate solely on the wholesale market, building the infrastructure for other authorized operators. The plan envisages that EOF builds, in several steps to be released in sequence, the optical fiber telecommunications network in 224 Italian municipalities in successful market areas (known as clusters A and B).
