From 21 to 23 November, IZIVIA was present at EDF’s interactive stand at the Maires et des Collectivités Locales Porte de Versailles event in Paris. This visibility gave us the opportunity to talk to potential customers about their future electric mobility projects. We got lots of valuable feedback, confirming their interest in establishing charging networks for electric vehicles in their respective regions, departments and municipalities.
IZIVIA took the opportunity to present its projects and associated services that make it a leading light in this field in the country: Rambouillet, Hauts-de-France, the Seine-Maritime Energy Syndicate, the City of Paris, Nice, EPAMSA, SDE22, Grasse, and Smoys.
Electric mobility strategies are a big trend at the moment, and an important challenge for local authorities. They remain at the heart of energy transitions, thus helping EDF’s subsidiary establish itself as a key player. IZIVIA offers off-the-shelf as well as flexible solutions to help decision-makers adopt a sustainable environmental policy: advice, provision, installation of charging facilities, tools for managing charging networks and ways of generating revenue, as well as technical and commercial management, maintenance, customer service and innovation with smart charging.
The event was shared live on Twitter by EDF, IZIVIA and the other subsidiaries of the group, Energies Nouvelles, Tiru, Citelum and Dalkia.

A talk was put on for Tuesday 21 November on the theme of “Transport and new mobility solutions”, in the presence of Isabel Montelescaut, head of EDF’s Electric Mobility Department, who reminded us of a remarkable figure: “In 2040, one in every two vehicles will be electric or plug-in hybrid electric.”
To bring the stand to life, IZIVIA’s corporate film and images of its key messages were displayed on a screen, and a Renault Twizzy car was parked “plugged in” to a next generation charging point manufactured by Hager. The effect was impressive, and gave IZIVIA’s experts the opportunity to answer technical and commercial questions asked by officials, as well as winning them over!
Highlights included: a discussion between Amélie Lefebvre, IZIVIA’s head of communication and marketing, and Henri Lafontaine, senior executive of the EDF Group responsible for Commerce, Optimisation and Trading as well as Island Energy Systems and in charge of customers, services, and regional action. He oversees the subsidiaries DALKIA, TIRU and CITELUM. He is also Commercial Director.
