The French Riviera is an active territory on Smart grids and Urban matters. With over 150 players distributed over the entire value chain of energy from producer to consumer, the Smart Grid industry Riviera is one of the most dense and dynamic France.
A real ecosystem around the topic is setting up thanks to an active collaboration between private and publics actors. The French Riviera Chamber of Commerce and Industry is playing a great role since 2010 by fostering public institutions and High tech companies. These actors are brought together in the French Riviera Smart Grids Club and charter created in 2014. The club offer a great opportunity to develop co-innovation project locally on Smart Grids and broader topics like IoT.
That is why SAP Labs France decided to get involved. Hanno Klausmeier, President of the Labs, sign the Charter last week during the Innovative City international fair, with EDF/ERDF, Schneider Electric, IBM, and many others.
