The award was presented to ERG's business plan in the competition for renewable energy and circular economy taking place during the Smau Live Show, an event that was held on Wednesday 21 at Palazzo della Borsa in Genoa, as part of the initiatives for the Liguria stage of the 2018 roadshow conducted by SMAU.
SMAU is the independent platform through which over 50,000 entrepreneurs, company and public administration managers meet and discuss innovation, technology, digital and internationalisation every year.
The prize was also awarded to Ferrovie dello Stato for a pilot power supply project using solar energy for some services at the Bordighera train station, realised by three Ligurian startups.
ERG also got involved in another part of the event, the workshop "Open Innovation Experiences: the new approach to digital transformation". Marcella Mignosa, Public Affairs & Communication, presented ERG's experience with the ERG Re-Generation Challenge project. There at the round table were Mercedes-Benz Consulting, IIT, Ferrovie dello Stato and Andrea Benveduti, the Regional Authority of Liguria's Councillor for Economic Development.
