Enel is also the second-largest Italian distributor and vendor of natural gas, with over 2.3 million customers and a 12 % market share.

Enel still controls most of the low voltage wires in Italy but due to the Decreto Bersani has been forced to create Terna in 1999 and sell it on, keeping only around 5% of it in 2008. Terna owns about 90% of the voltage wires in Italy.
