The Renault-Nissan alliance will plug their electric vehicles into two of Europe’s biggest utilities, Italy’s Enel S.p.A. and Spain’s Endesa S.A., to promote electric mobility across the continent and in Latin America.

As it is known, the French and Japanese carmakers formed an alliance in 1999 and together accounts for 9% of the global market share while Enel acquired Endesa and today they are present to 23 countries.

 Both, are taking steps towards the global trend for electric vehicles and claimed that swapping a conventional vehicle with an electric vehicle will lower CO2 emissions by as much as 45% based on the average efficiency of the Italian generation fleet.

Renault S.A. and Nissan Motor Company will work on integrating their electric cars into the power interface of Enel’s recharging infrastructure. They will also develop integrated E.V. products and services, study various recharging technologies and look into the possibility of using a battery as an energy storage system of renewable power in the second part of its life cycle.
