The Riviera Electric Challenge will once again be held in May, crossing three countries and celebrating the use of electric vehicles in the professional sphere.

Organised on the fringes of EVER 2019, the 5th edition of the Riviera Electric Challenge will build on the success of past years, and aims is to bring together companies and groups carrying out best practices in the integration of electric vehicles into their fleets.

The objective of this event is to complete a route in an electric vehicle using as little energy as possible. The route will start in Cagnes-sur-Mer and end in Monaco, both towns being founders of the event. At each staging post, participants will be asked questions linked to the implementation of energy transition in each site.

For the second time, a staging post party will be organised in Dolceacqua, a commune in the Province of Imperia, in the presence of the mayor and prominent Italian figures.

EVER 2019 will bring together specialists from universities and industries, involved in R&D projects in the area of ecological vehicles or renewable energies or both, for a conference at the Grimaldi Forum. They will have the opportunity to share their scientific, technical, business and social experiences with other attendees coming from all over the world, through the presentation and the discussion of their recent works either at lecture or poster sessions.

EVER Monaco will be held from 8th to 10th May. The Riviera Electric Challenge will kick off on 8th May at 2pm in Cagnes-sur-Mer, and finish in Monaco on 9th May at 8.30am at the Grimaldi Forum.
