Enel was the first in the world to replace traditional electromechanical meters – as used in Italy – with “smart” electronic meters, enabling real-time usage readings and remote contract management. This innovative measuring system is critical for the development of intelligent grids, smart cities and electric transport.

On 26th January 2016 Enel launched its new global corporate identity and simultaneously unveiled the new logos for Enel Green Power and Endesa. The new brand strategy is the incarnation of the “Open Power” approach announced in November 2015 at the Capital Markets Day in London, with “openness” as the keystone of the group’s strategic and operational approach.
Enel’s new face represents Enel’s identity: a modern, open, flexible and responsive utility company, ready to lead the energy transition. The attractive and colourful logo is inspired by the principles of “Open Power” and reflects the diversity of the energy spectrum, the multifaceted nature of a group present in 29 countries, and the increasingly broad range of services it offers.
