Gregorio Ameyugo / Interview CaFFEET’14

The California France Forum on Energy Efficiency Technologies (CaFFEET) is an annual event established in 2011 by EDF and the Consulate General of France in San Francisco. Its aim is to promote technical and scientific collaborations between France and California, two leaders in achieving low-CO2 economies.
This year (November 19th and 20th 2014 at the Fort Mason Center - San Francisco), the CaFFEET’s focus was “What is the Value Added of Smart Factory, both for manufacturing productivity and industrial energy management?”.

During CaFFEET’14, we met Gregorio Ameyugo (Program Manager - CEA Tech Institute). Watch out this interview :


CaFFEET’14 is organized in partnership with the Paris Region International Mission Enterprise (PRIME), l’Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA), and the French Tech Hub.

Every year, CaFFEET reunites an audience of approximately 200 people affiliated with large private companies like EDF or Schneider as well as Universities like UC Berkeley or Stanford. The conference is also the occasion for French and American start-ups to come and present their products via a Technology Showcase.
