It is the largest European utility by ordinary EBITDA, and is present in over 30 countries worldwide, producing energy with over 86 GW of installed capacity.

Sustainability, an objective that must be achieved through innovation processes, is at the heart of Enel’s Open Power strategic approach. In line with its Open Power strategic approach, Enel has placed environmental, social, and economic sustainability at the center of its corporate culture and is implementing a sustainable development system that is based on the creation of shared value, both inside and outside of the company. This strategy has prompted Enel to become part of the United Nations Global Compact Board with a commitment to make a tangible contribution to four of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are: access to clean and affordable energy, the promotion of innovation, sustainable industrialization and resilient infrastructure, the creation of sustainable cities and communities, and climate action, with a view to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
Partnership with Greentown Labs
When it came time for Enel to open its second Innovation Hub in the United States, the company saw Greentown as a perfect fit. At its Boston Innovation Hub headquarters in Greentown—its 10th worldwide—Enel taps into Boston’s vibrant startup ecosystem. Enel’s North American business unit works with Greentown member company Raptor Maps to manage real-time operations on the corporate’s solar fields through drone-based thermal imaging. Greentown is supporting Enel’s Boston Innovation Hub through ecosystem connections and targeted innovation scouting.
