Technology is the key to building sustainable cities: Enel

Currently, more than 50% of the global population lives in cities, however, urban centers produce about 70% of greenhouse gas emissions, so it is essential to redesign these spaces to walk towards a world more sustainable.

In order to achieve the evolution of metropolises, Enel proposes solutions for mobility, but also for efficient public lighting, energy management in public buildings, urban design and digital services.

Similarly, the approach encompasses generating more and more electricity from renewable sources -and without greenhouse gas emissions-, as well as transferring the benefits of a decarbonized electricity park to other sectors, such as transport and construction.

“The solution to have sustainable cities has to do with technology. Technological resources must be available to improve and make the country’s electrical services more efficient. For this reason, in addition to producing renewable energy, at Enel we develop specific products for public and private transport,” said Ricardo Whaley, Head of Energy Management and Commercial Office of Enel in Mexico.

During his participation in the panel , held within the framework of the Inter.Mx Expansión Summit 2022, Whaley explained that the company works hand in hand with municipal governments, providing them with innovative solutions that allow them to be more efficient in energy management.

Similarly, Enel has implemented smart and remote public lighting in various regions, by replacing old technologies of incandescent lamps with LEDs, and recently introduced a smart charging system for line 3 of the Mexico City Metrobus, which will start to operate from the first quarter of 2023.

“The dialogue has to flow between the government and the companies, but especially with society. We must rely on mechanisms, such as studies carried out by non-governmental organizations, environmentalists and research institutes, to know more precisely the needs of people in today’s world”, said the manager.

Finally, from the point of view of a leading energy manager like Enel, Ricardo Whaley affirmed that the redesign of cities must be designed with people in mind, so that the projects are carried out successfully, otherwise they run the risk of being rejected by the communities.
