Enel X: Driving Digital Transformation in the Energy Sector

Chesbrough, Henry W.
Publication date: 8/1/2020, pages 1-16

Enel is one of the world’s largest electric utilities, based in Italy but operating in dozens of countries around the world. This case discusses the process of establishing a new subsidiary company inside Enel to lead the company towards digital transformation in eMobility. The new entity must manage a number of legacy businesses, and also foster a new and different culture in an environment where no one is easily fired. It also must self-finance the transformation, without much upfront investment from the parent organization. In the case, the CEO takes stock of his actions so far, and seeks to chart a course for the future.
