Enel X expands in Canada’s EV home charging market

by Dec 24, 2021

Enel X has announced its expansion in the Canadian market as the company and agency partner Catalyst Sales and Marketing say they will expand EV charging solutions for multi-unit dwellings with Killam Apartment REIT, one of Canada’s largest multi-residential landlords. The plan is for Enel X to install 438 smart EV charging stations across Killam properties. Natural Resources Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP) provided $730,000 in funding to help establish the chargers across 50 Killam properties. ZEVIP is a 5-year $280 million program ending in 2024.

According to census data, more than a third of residents live in multi-unit dwellings in Canada, so EV charging is increasingly considered an “expected amenity,” said the partners. Moreover, with home charging accounting for 80 per cent of charging in Canada, offering said option is also “a critical factor in driving mainstream adoption of EVs.” The country has set a mandatory target for all new light-duty cars and passenger trucks to be zero-emission by 2035.

Enel X will provide Killam with JuiceBox intelligent charging stations and JuiceNet IoT platform, ensuring smart charging and load management in line with grid conditions and requirements.

As part of the Enel Group, Enel X in North America claims it has around 4,500 business customers, spanning more than 35,000 sites. The company also says it has about 4.7 GW of demand response capacity on the continent, over 70 battery storage projects that are operational and under contract, and more than 70,000 smart EV charging stations. The company mainly competes in the residential charging segment and captures a significant share in this market.
