ENGIE at Vivatech

By ENGIE - 15 June 2022 - 18:11

"Positive impact innovation for renewable energies"

ENGIE will be at VivaTech, the international tech event, from 15 to 18 June. For the occasion, the Group has prepared an immersive experience for its visitors, based on innovation and renewable energies.


ENGIE is facing a challenge: to re-invent today the energy of tomorrow using new technologies and new partnerships to build low carbon emission energy systems with its customers, employees and stakeholders.

We are therefore taking part in VivaTech Paris, which has been a key event for the world leaders of the innovation sector since 2016. At the huge 250m² booth, visitors will be able to discover the technological solutions for innovation in the field of renewable energies and particularly the greening of electricity and gas; these technologies will enable us to change how we produce, use and consume energy.

What do we hope to get out of this event? Our goal is to promote positive impact innovation for renewable energies for our regional territories and society.


A unique experience

Visitors will be able to take an immersive technological trip, based on five themes related to sustainable energy: renewable energies, renewable gas, positive impact digital technology, innovation for the home and innovation for the territories. Business cases and the solutions proposed by ENGIE and our start-up partners will be presented for each stage.

Our stand will also be hosting various events over the four-day exhibition: pitches by start-up representatives, a live ‘Trends Shaker’, in collaboration with the So Good magazine, on the topic of ‘Entrepreneurialism, a new grail for the younger generation?’, and a presentation on algorithms by Aurélie Jean and the winner of the Pépites des Pépite prize.
