2019 was a key year in relation to the decarbonization strategy, with the construction of over 3,000 MW of renewable capacity, the continuation of the coal power plants decommissioning plan, generation from renewable sources surpassing the output from thermal generation, and specific CO2 emissions from total net production totalling 296 g/kWheq.
The new Global Power Generation Business Line, which integrates renewable capacity with thermal generation, was created to further support and accelerate this process. Users with smart meters number 44.7 million, and the Group has a total of 70 million end users, thus confirming Enel’s positive positioning, especially in developed countries in which a process of energy markets liberalisation is in progress.

Company people, totalling 68,253 in the various Group countries and regions, constitute the strategic lever to manage the energy transition process.
Our staff are offered specific upskilling and reskilling programmes as well as tailored training initiatives are offered to Enel people to boost digital skills.
The combined injuries frequency rate (Enel people and contractors) confirmed the downward trend of prior years (0.73 in 2019 vs 0.90 in 2018).
Projects with local communities remained in place, aimed at promoting access to energy, high-quality education, and socio-economic development.
Important results were achieved also in terms of environmental sustainability and in the sphere of vendor relations. Finally, the principles of innovation, digitalization and the circular economy were infused throughout all processes in the value chain.
