Enel forms alliance with China’s ZTE

The heads of Italy’s Enel and China’s ZTE Corporation have signed an agreement aimed at cooperation between the two groups in the areas of electric mobility, smart grids and renewable generation.

Francesco Starace, CEO and General Manager of Enel SpA, signed the framework agreement with Mr. Shi Lirong, CEO of ZTE Corporation.
On smart grids, the parties have agreed to evaluate business opportunities in markets of common interest, based on Enel’s technology and solutions in the field.

Meanwhile in the renewable sector, Enel and ZTE will start collaborating on existing Enel projects to identify optimization opportunities to better integrate IT solutions toward improving performance of renewable power plants.

A dedicated effort will also focus on cooperation in off-grid renewable generation, including collaboration at the Ollague site in Chile.

In Ollague, a village near the Bolivian border, Enel Green Power (the Enel Group renewable arm) is constructing an innovative 232 kW off-grid hybrid plant combining photovoltaic power and a mini-wind turbine generator coupled with an energy storage system. The collaborative effort for this project is aimed at exploring possible optimization and identifying further development opportunities for similar installations.
