13th edition

Rising energy prices: what are the new economic opportunities?


High level speakers


200 specialists in the field (distributors, producers, engineers…)


Privileged moments of exchange between specialists

The rise in energy prices, linked to various geopolitical factors, has had profound repercussions in our society, accompanied by some questioning and new ways of doing or seeing things. At the economic level, this price increase has forced companies, but also energy producers and distributors to be inventive, in order to limit the increases or better serve their customers. The 13e edition of the Smart Energy Event, organized by The Ark Foundation and CleantechAlps, will highlight the new economic opportunities developed by players in the field as well as companies. New business models, new practices, new behaviors, in an energy world undergoing profound change: speakers will share their good ideas and their feedback.

The main conference on Friday morning will be complemented in the afternoon by the first edition of the Smart Energy Start-up Pitch Contest, a pitch competition for young companies from all over Switzerland. A pre-event will be organized on Thursday evening, with a keynote speaker and an evening of exchanges and networking.
