28: this is the number of businesses selected to take part in the first intake of this accelerator for the energy transition sector. What do they all have in common? Enthusiasm to share experiences and ideas with peers and seize the market's opportunities, as well as a strong potential for green growth, of course.
Over a two-year period, they will benefit from customised support (including advice, assessments, seminars and networking between managers and with experts in the sector).
According to the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (French acronym: ADEME), there are more than 370,000 jobs in France connected with the energy transition, with a 75% increase between 2006 and 2017*.
