Sponsored by the Occitanie / Pyrénées Méditerranée Regional Authority, Forum EnerGaïa is a showcase for the actions that it conducts in support of the energy transition to reach its goal: to become the first positive energy region in Europe. Through the organisation of the Forum, the regional authority maintains its efforts to accompany all the professionals committed alongside it in pursuit of this goal.
“Providing a premium venue for meetings and dialogue for thousands of energy transition professionals from all over Europe has been the ambition pursued by EnerGaïa since its creation. With 17,000 participants registered this year, a record, our show confirms its status as an essential gathering, and reasserts the importance of offering a platform to innovation in the change of production and consumption model that I advocate and stand for here in Occitania,” said Carole Delga, chairwoman of the Occitania regional authority.
“The growing success of Forum EnerGaïa shows us once again that the transformation of our energy models is not a constraint, but instead represents an opportunity to rise to the challenges of the future: a climate challenge demanding that we act with urgency, a social challenge to reduce energy insecurity and promote sobriety, and an economic challenge through the emergence of innovative economic sectors that create jobs,” commented Agnès Langevine, vice-chair of Occitanie regional authority, responsible for the Climate emergency, the Green deal and Sustainable housing.
