On April 28, 2017, the Enel Group adopted a new organizational structure, introducing a new Global Business Line, called “Enel X”. It is intended to foster greater customer focus and digitization as accelerators of value within the 2017-2019 Strategic Plan:
More specifically, the new Enel Group structure is organized, like the previous one, into a matrix that comprises:
- Divisions (Global Thermal Generation and Trading, Global Infrastructure and Networks, Renewable Energy, Enel X), which are responsible for managing and developing assets, optimizing their performance and the return on capital employed in the various geographical areas in which the Group operates. The Divisions are also tasked with improving the efficiency of the processes they manage and sharing best practices at the global level. The Group will benefit from a centralized industrial vision of projects in the various Business Lines. Each project will be assessed not only on the basis of its financial return but also in relation to the best technologies available at the Group level;
- Regions and Countries (Italy, Iberia, South America, Europe and North Africa, North and Central America, Sub- Saharan Africa and Asia), which are responsible for managing relationships with institutional bodies and regulatory authorities, as well as selling electricity and gas, in each of the countries in which the Group is present, while also providing staff and other service support to the Divisions.
The following functions provide support to Enel’s business operations:
- Global service functions which are responsible for managing information and communication technology activities and procurement at the Group level;
- Holding company functions (Administration, Finance and Control, Human Resources and Organization, Communications, Legal and Corporate Affairs, Audit, European Affairs, and Innovation and Sustainability), which are responsible for managing governance processes at the Group level.
