Enel SpA

Enel is the largest integrated electric utility in Italy and one of the largest quoted utilities in Europe (market cap €45.4bn at October 2018). Its IPO was in 1999 and now the Italian government owns just under 24% of Enel. Renewables company Enel Green Power (EGP) had its IPO in 2010, but Enel has re-aquired the stock of EGP and it was re-integrated from 31 March 2016. Around 75% of group EBITDA is regulated or quasi-regulated. With the acquisition of Endesa and OGK-5 in Russia, Enel is one of the largest utility groups in Europe, with installed capacity of some 85GW (FY17) and over 65mn customers. In its core Italian market, in 2017 Enel generated 54TWh, distributed 227TWh and sold 97TWh. On a global basis in 2017, the company had net production of 250TWh (262TWh in 2016), transported 445TWh (427TWh) and sold 285TWh (263TWh). In 2017 group EBITDA was €15.7bn with the main geographic contributions being from Italy (44%), Spain (23%) and Latin America (27%). Renewable operations, including hydro (28GW) had 38GW of installed capacity (2017) and contributed €4bn or 26% of group EBITDA. (04 Oct 2018)
