The official launch of the France-Romania season, chosen to coincide with the centenary of the foundation of Modern Romania, marks the start of the Romania season in France which will run until 14 April 2019. The event then continues through to July 2019 with the France season in Romania, during which time Romania will hold the presidency of the European Union Council.
With this sponsorship, ENGIE is going beyond energy and taking part in a great collective project for harmonious development, combining a cultural season with an industrial partnership, and artistic creation with innovation.
With a clear focus on modernity, the season offers a new perspective on Romania, a country in which ENGIE has been firmly established since 2005, when the Group took over the company Distrigaz Sud. Its 3,700 employees make ENGIE Romania one of the biggest companies in the country. It has three key business activities: natural gas, distributed and supplied to over 1.7 million customers; electricity produced from renewable energy and supplied to both domestic and industrial customers; and energy services.
ENGIE Romania also shows firm commitment to the country’s civil society through its wide range of social actions.
In July 2018, ENGIE took over the Romanian company Flashnet which specialises in the Internet of Objects (IoT) and smart street lighting. This technological company, which leads the way in the market for managing smart public services, is a perfect example of the country’s economic vitality and capacity for innovation (www.flashnet.ro).
