Enel X Way Romania partners with retailer Penny for the installation of a network of 64 charging stations for electric vehicles, representing a total of 128 charging points.

With these units, the national network of Enel X Way Romania will grow to almost 500 charging points in 63 localities in the country, with a total installed power of over 8,700 kW.
“We continue to expand our electric mobility infrastructure in the context of a growing need from the drivers of electric and hybrid vehicles to have such charging points in the vicinity of the residences or places they go to regularly. Partnerships with many retailers, such as the one recently concluded with PENNY, generate immediate benefits for those who have opted for electric mobility. At the same time, through such projects, Enel X Way Romania accelerates the transition to green mobility, with zero emissions, and to electrified transportation”, said Andrei Mihalciu, Manager Enel X Way Romania.
“At PENNY we are adepts of sustainable development, and the optimal infrastructure to load electric vehicles is one of the facilities recently offered to ensure that our stores are even more prepared for the future. We are glad to be able to offer this service to our clients together with our partner Enel X Way Romania. It is important for us to react as promptly as we can to the needs of our customers and to offer them quality products at advantageous prices, as well as services that suit with their preferences and lifestyle”, said Claudia Ivan, Sustainability Manager PENNY Romania.
