“Kraft Sports + Entertainment greatly values sustainable operations, and these new electric vehicle charging ports will allow our players and guests to charge their electric vehicles through the cleanest energy sources possible,” said Murray Kohl, vice president of sales for the Kraft Group. “We look forward to furthering our relationship with Enel to continue to provide our visitors with sustainable resources.”

The new stations were added as a part of Enel X’s role as the official energy partner of Kraft Sports + Entertainment. The new JuiceBox chargers at Gillette Stadium offer far more than just EV charging to the site. Enel X was ranked as the number one Vehicle-Grid Integration solution provider by Navigant and has a deep bench when it comes to mastery of truly integrating larger EV charging installations into the broader electrical system of a site.

Gillette Stadium is making a significant push to clean up its energy footprint at the site, first focusing on reducing energy consumption of the site with its partnership with Enel X. Solutions have been installed that track and analyze energy usage at the stadium to inform the broader effort to reduce consumption. The stadium as a whole is also enrolled in Enel X’s Demand Response program which enables the site to respond to signals from the grid operator to cut usage during peak times. This helps reduce bills further and gives the stadium a nice kickback for occasions when it does reduce power consumption of non-essential areas when called on.

In 2019, home games of the New England Patriots were powered with clean energy through renewable energy credits through an agreement with Enel Green Power North America. The future is looking green in Boston, with a hint of Enel X’s signature purple color as the backdrop.
