Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transitioning to ecological propulsion systems, and evolving towards creating a sustainable product… These subjects will all be covered at the 15th international edition of the EVER Monaco conference at the Grimaldi Forum, Monte-Carlo, between the 10 and 12 of September. To participate, the registration fees are the following: 250€ for students, 350€ for university students and 550€ for other guests. The costs include the welcome cocktail, lunches, coffee breaks, and the official dinner.
In recent years, the initiatives taken towards protecting the environment has been a prevalent change occurring in many companies in Monaco and in France. In that regard, one professional sector is continuously growing to become more eco-friendly: automotive manufacturing.
For more than twenty years, since 1994, the Principality of Monaco has dedicated itself to developing renewable energies and electric mobility. In 2019, they welcomed a scheme to introduce subsidies, which vary depending on carbon dioxide emissions, for anyone buying hybrid vehicles. Additional measures have also been taken to promote the transition to eco-friendly cars. For example, eco-vehicles can park on public roads for free. There are also reduced parking charges for clean or low-polluting vehicles that emit less than 110g/km of CO2, plus there are now around 43 charging stations spread out in Monaco.
Consequently, with the Principality of Monaco being one of the world’s leading territories promoting electro-mobility, the professional EVER forum couldn’t have been brought together in a better location. More than 40 exhibitors and specialists on the subject of ecological vehicles and renewable energies coming from universities and related business industries across the world will be present at the conference. The exhibition area will be in the “Diaghilev” space. Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to experts’ input on the scientific, technical, social, and business experiences through debates and exchanges. Furthermore, around 20 green-vehicles from different manufacturers will also be accessible for test-drives outside.
Gregory Bertrand, the representative of ENEDIS “electricité en reseau,” who will be present at the conference, commented: “It’s a commitment to build and anticipate the infrastructures which will aid in the development of the transition to electric mobility. Our aim is to accompany this development to the creation of eco-friendly vehicles.”
Roundtable events will be taking place, bringing together the specialists, as mentioned above: researchers, industrialists, and academics. They will discuss and share their knowledge of renewable energies and the development of ecological hybrid and electric mobility. The topics will range from propulsion systems, power supplies, generators, traction drives, the various energy systems (such as wind or solar, for example), to environmental impacts.
The event distinguishes itself from others thanks to the incorporation of special events such as the 7th edition of the Metha Europe competition, organized by the schools of the IMT institute. Finally, this year will also welcome the 6th edition of the Riviera Electric Challenge.
Additionally, the Monaco Développement Durable (MC2D), the organizers of the EVER conference, has earned the label “Monaco safe,” issued by the Principality, for its sanitary measures. Under the location’s health regulations, they have taken the engagement to protect its visitors against the dangers of the propagation of COVID-19.
