A centre for innovation and communication, a space devoted entirely to the future of energy distribution networks. That’s our Innovation Hub&Lab in Milan, the European centre where we are building the future of network technology in the fields of automation, digitalisation and industry 4.0 in collaboration with startups, enterprises and innovative technological partners.
The Hub&Lab is located in an area where over the past 20 years the Enel Group has developed the most innovative remote control and management technology for medium and low-voltage networks. It is here that we developed the electronic meter that made Italy the first country in the world to implement an entirely digitalised electricity grid. The Hub&Lab offers 1,200 square metres of facilities for development, prototyping and testing, and is complemented by an LEED-certified energy-sustainable showroom where it’s possible to experience innovation through an immersive display created by Augmented and Virtual Reality devices.
