Bordeaux Innovation Day and Marketplace

Energy Communities
20/11/2015

ENGIE's Innovation Day was held at the Darwin Ecosysteme, in the former Caserne Niel.

Major Innovations that will allow to adress the energy transition were presented by local start-ups.

Let's focus on some projects...

Ampool is a connected vehicle that is two times lighter than its competitors, and so consumes two times less energy.

Benoit Paillard, from AdvTech : "We have developped a wind turbine inspired by nature that lets us optimize energy production while keeping low noise levels. It lends itself quite well to being installed near homes."

Jean-Michel Amare, ceo of Ataway : "Alpha is a hydrogen-powered bicycle, where the hydrogen comes from recharging stations, where it is produced using water. This electric bicycle can run for 100 km and is recharged in only 2 mn."

The day ended with the signature of an agreement with French Tech Bordeaux Metropole and the launch of a call for projects on energy storage.
