  • Chair Energy and Prosperity (Institut Polytechnique de Paris)
  • IMD Institut de la Mobilité Durable RENAULT-ParisTech

Coordinators: Virginie Boutueil (ENPC), Jan Lepoutre (ESSEC), Marc Petit (CentraSupélec), Yannick Perez (CentraSupélec), Jean-Pierre Ponssard (Ecole Polytechnique)

Scope of the conference

The conference will address issues on the following topics

  • The driving force of cities in promoting clean transport
  • Orgnaizational forms for new forms of mobility
  • Infrastructure developments for electromobility

Researchers, industry experts, and policy makers from public, private, and civil society are invited to expose their view and analysis on current potentials, new windows of opportunities and discuss policy options based on cutting-edge research.

The conference will include both plenary and parallel sessions as well as a round table.
