On July 31, 2014, the Enel Group adopted a new organizational structure based on a Business Line/Geography matrix focused on the Group’s industrial objectives.
In 2017, the organizational model was expanded with a new Business Line, Global e-Solutions, whose objective will be to manage all products and services not related to commodities. In particular, the Enel Group’s new organizational structure is, just like the previous one, based on a matrix that considers:
- Divisions (Global Thermal Generation, Global Trading, Global Infrastructures and Networks, Renewable Energies, Global e-Solutions), which are entrusted with the task of managing and developing assets, optimizing their performance and return on invested capital in the various geographical areas where the Group operates; Divisions are also entrusted with the task of improving the efficiency of managed processes and sharing best practices worldwide. The Group will benefit from a centralized industrial view of the projects in the various Business Lines. Each individual project will be evaluated not only according to financial returns, but also in relation to the best technologies available at the Group level;
- Regions and Countries (Italy, Iberia, South America, Europe and North Africa, North and Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia), which are entrusted with the task of managing within each country where the Group operates the relations with local institutional bodies and regulatory authorities, as well as electricity and gas sales, also providing support in terms of personnel activities and other services to the Divisions.
The following are associated with this matrix in terms of business support:
- Global Service Functions (Procurement and ICT), which are entrusted with the task of managing purchases at the Group level and Information and Communication Technology activities;
- Holding Functions (Administration, Finance and Control, Human Resources and Organization, Communications, Legal and Corporate Affairs, Audit, European Affairs, Innovability: Innovation and Sustainability), entrusted with the task of managing the Group’s governance processes.
