VivaTech provides an excellent platform to demonstrate ENGIE's ability to innovate and integrate digital technology into developing decarbonization solutions. Our 97,300 employees are motivated by our positive vision of the energy transition and our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045. Innovation and digitalization are key drivers in achieving this.

ENGIE leverages digital technology, particularly artificial intelligence, as an accelerator of the transition. We have been using AI for years to optimize our activities, from managing wind and solar farms to predictive maintenance of our systems. Now, we are adopting generative AI to deploy new innovative offers. Our employees can also explore this emerging field through training and events, such as hackathons which signal a true cultural shift. 


But why VivaTech?

It is a global event that attracts investors, tech and energy specialists, partners, clients, journalists, and the general public. It’s a fantastic platform for the startups we incubate and an opportunity to recruit the talent we need to accelerate our transformation.

With ENGIE’s 600 researchers, a 135-million-euro budget for our ENGIE Research & Innovation entity, four laboratories in Europe and Asia, an investment fund dedicated to innovative startups, incubation programs, and research partnerships with world-renowned centers like the CEA, a French research organization specializing in low-carbon energy and digital technology, innovation is without a doubt part of ENGIE's DNA.
