The Forum

After two successful editions, Energy for Smart Mobility European forum (E4SM) enlarges its scope in 2020 to the challenges faced by maritime and air sectors in addition to road transport. The forum will also focus on e-mobility, hydrogen and biogas solutions.

The forum is the meeting place for energy and mobility stakeholders to discuss energy solutions for tomorrow’s mobility by promoting technical and commercial exchanges.

Organized by the competitiveness cluster Capenergies and the media specialized in the energy transition GreenUnivers, on October 13th and 14th 2020 in Marseille, the 3rd edition of E4SM, unique in Europe, will bring together more than 350 professionals: international experts and decision-makers, large groups and innovative startup, national and local authorities, financers. They will discuss trends and perspectives, the latest technological, economic and financial solutions as well as the legal framework of this evolving sector.

Norway, a leader in the electrification of transport, and United Kingdom, one of the European leaders in the deployment of low-emission road and maritime transport, will be our guest countries for this third edition.


The organisers

The Capenergies cluster unites 530 members and almost 1,800 specialist partners in the energy sector (including major industrial firms, businesses, research and education institutions, and financial backers) and has strong interactions with the local authorities. It aims at fostering the emergence of innovative projects and at supporting their development in order to accelerate the energy transition. It serves the low carbon energy sector in 4 regions (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Corsica, Guadeloupe, Reunion Island) and in the Principality of Monaco. It focuses on 3 strategic areas of interventions: reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency, optimize and secure energy systems, produce low-carbon energy. Since its inception, it has certified 703 innovative projects and supported more than 405 projects funded by public authorities, with a total budget in excess of €1.5 billion.

In particular, the cluster ensures the operational management of the Flexgrid program. This program deploys optimized energy system solutions in order to maximize the integration of renewable energies and, in a long-term perspective, electric vehicles. In this framework, Capenergies creates the sustainable smart mobility club gathered more than 60 professionals of the energy, mobility and digital sectors. The objective: accelerate innovation and foster common learning.
