Excitement building around Ever Monaco 2020

Ever Monaco 2020, the springtime electric vehicle and renewable energy event that was postponed until September due to the health crisis, is coming soon to the Grimaldi Forum with a quality program that is worth the wait.

Ever Monaco, scheduled for 10th to 12th September at the Grimaldi Forum, is one of the most anticipated environmental events on the calendar, and it is with great interest that this year’s edition takes place.

Bernard Fautrier, Minister Plenipotentiary and Special Advisor to the Prince on environmental issues, presented the program of this new edition of Ever Monaco at the Yacht Club earlier this week. It will include five round tables that are to take place over the course of the event as well as an exhibition featuring around 40 companies, the Riviera Classic Challenge, the Mines Telecom Institute school competition finals and Talks on Ride and Drive will take place.

Over the course of three days, visitors will be able to discover the latest innovations in sustainable mobility, not only on the stands, but also by test driving cars, motorbikes and even boats. And entrance is free.

According to the Minister and figures by Monaco Electricity and Gas Company (SMEG), there has been a massive jump in the purchase of electric and hybrid vehicles in both France and the Principality and Monaco is looking for suitable solutions for recharging stations to add to the 120 current charging points now on offer. France saw 55,000 new electric vehicles and 25,000 hybrids registered in the first half of this year. That equals roughly 18% of all new registrations. Similarly, Monaco has 3,000 electric or hybrid models and the number of these environmentally-friendly vehicles registered has grown by 70% since 2019.

These numbers show that there is a continued growing interest in purchasing and driving vehicles with alternative energy supplies, making Ever Monaco more relevant than ever.

Speakers will include academics in field from around the world including Professor Hiroyuki Ohsaki from the University of Tokyo, Professor Ali Emadi from Mc Master University in Canada, Professor Frede Blaabjerg from Denmark’s Aalborg University, Zhejiang University’s Professor Jian-Xin Shen from China, and Professor Mehrdad Ehsani from Texas A&M.
