Enel organizational model

The Enel Group structure is organized into a matrix that comprises:

Global Business Lines The Global Business Lines 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 Business Lines are also tasked with improving the efficiency of the processes they manage and sharing best practices at the global level. The Group, which also draws on the work of an Investment Committee,(1) benefits from a centralized industrial vision of projects in the various Business Lines. Each project is assessed not only on the basis of its financial return but also in relation to the best technologies available at the Group level, which reflect the new strategic line adopted, explicitly integrating the SDGs within our financial strategy and promoting a low-carbon business model. Furthermore, each Business Line contributes to guiding Enel’s leadership in the energy transition and in the fight against climate change, managing the associated risks and opportunities in its area of competence. In 2019, Global Power Generation was created with the merger of Enel Green Power and Global Thermal Generation to confirm the Enel Group’s leading role in the energy transition, pursuing an integrated process of decarbonization and the sustainable development of renewables capacity. In addition, the Grid Blue Sky project was launched. Its objective is to innovate and digitalize infrastructures and networks in order to make them an enabling factor for the achievement of the Climate Action objectives, thanks to the progressive transformation of Enel into a platform-based group.
Regions and Countries Countries and Regions 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 Business Lines. They are also charged with promoting decarbonization and guiding the energy transition towards a low-carbon business model within their areas of responsibility. 

The following functions provide support to Enel’s business operations:

Global Service Functions The Global Service Functions are responsible for managing information and communication technology activities and procurement at the Group level. They are also responsible for adopting sustainability criteria, including climate change issues, in managing the supply chain and developing digital solutions to support the development of enabling technologies for the energy transition and the fight against climate change.
Holding Company Functions The Holding Company Functions are responsible for managing governance processes at the Group level. The Administration, Finance and Control function is also responsible for consolidating scenario analysis and managing the strategic and financial planning process aimed at promoting the decarbonization of the energy mix and the electrification of energy demand, key actions in the fight against climate change.
