The Capenergies cluster is a stakeholder in two new European projects financed by the Interreg MED programme, focusing on electric mobility and energy efficiency.
In addition to the partnership relationships that enrich the ecosystem of the cluster, these European projects form opportunities for Capenergies members to exchange and do business.
In fact, France – represented in particular by Capenergies – will host one pilot demonstration per project. The members of the cluster will have the opportunity to propose solutions within the framework of calls for expressions of interest, allowing certain technological brick components to be identified for these pilot demonstrations. Moreover, the cluster will communicate the results of these two projects and give its members the possibility of participating in the corresponding seminars.

EnerNETMob – Mediterranean Interregional Electromobility Networks for intermodal and interurban low carbon transport systems
The EnerNETMob project aims to create, on a transnational scale, a European electromobility transportation network using medium- and long-range electric vehicles.
Thirteen interregional pilots for electric vehicle charging infrastructures, powered in part by renewable energy sources, will be connected in order to link several coastal cities in the Mediterranean area, after a preliminary phase of studies.
These pilot demonstrations relate to one of three categories:
The EnerNETMob network will rely on a joint plan for sustainable electromobility as well as a shared IT platform. Its ambition is to encourage electric-powered mobility and to make an impact on “Mobility and Transportation” policies at the regional, national, Mediterranean and European levels.
ESMARTCITY – Enabling smarter city in the MED area through networking
The ESMARTCITY project aspires to improve the innovation ability of key players working towards sustainable and intelligent growth in urban areas and in particular cities on the Mediterranean.
To do so, seven pilot demonstrations focusing on building energy efficiency and optimised public lighting management will be deployed, based on the ecosystems and the innovative technologies of the digital and energy sectors. More specifically, residential areas, student campuses and public buildings will be targeted for experimentation. The goal is to offer citizens services that are more respectful of the environment, and to make policy recommendations to public authorities.
