Enel's strategy is comprised of five pillars:
• Circular inputs: increase the use of energy from renewable sources and the use of renewable, reusable, or recycled raw materials.
• Useful life extension: to extend the useful life of assets, this pillar focuses on preventive or predictive maintenance actions and incorporating modular designs to facilitate assembly, reorganization, and disassembly, allowing easy repairs or replacement of parts in case of failure or allowing components to be reused at the end of their useful life.
• Product as a service: where the sale of a product is linked to a service. This product is designed for longevity, with characteristics such as high quality, durability, modularity, and repairability. This concept seeks to maximize the utilization factor and extend the useful life of products.
• Sharing platforms: by using information technologies, an underutilized asset is shared among multiple users, contributing to a collaborative economy and maximizing the use of the goods produced.
• New life cycles: incorporating new solutions such as reuse, repair, upcycling, remanufacturing, and recycling once the useful life of the goods is over, creating new opportunities to recover and recirculate materials.
