Moreover, overnight battery recharging would contribute to the levelling of the electrical load -profile.
Possible near-term applications of electric vehicles have already been pinpointed within the framework of the activities of ENEL and other important Italian utilities.
Electric vans have been or are being developed in co-operation with Italian manufacturers.
More than 50 electric vehicles of different types have been already assigned to ENEL operational units for demonstration purposes.
Laboratory and on-the-road tests are planned to improve the vehicle and battery performance.
