    The Forum

    The European Energy for Smart Mobility 2020 Forum will be an all-digital experience!
    Due to the health situation, allowing all participants to connect in a safe manner through online conferences, workshops and networking sessions is our priority.

    Organized by the competitiveness cluster Capenergies and the media specialized in energy transition GreenUnivers, the E4SM forum brings together stakeholders from the energy and mobility sectors on October 13 and 14, 2020 in a personalized virtual environment to discuss energy solutions for tomorrow’s mobility by promoting technical and commercial exchanges.

    After two successful editions, E4SM 2020 enlarges its scope to the challenges faced by the maritime and air sectors, in addition to road transport. The forum will also focus on electric, hydrogen and biogas mobility solutions.

    International experts and decision-makers, major groups and innovative start-ups, national and local authorities, also financers will exchange on trends and perspectives, the latest technological, economic and financial solutions as well as the legal framework of this rapidly evolving sector, particularly through post-covid recovery plans.

    Norway, a leader in the electrification of transport, and the United Kingdom, one of Europe’s leading countries in the deployment of low-emission land and sea transport, will be our honorary guests for this new 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.
