The importance of the electric vehicle as an industrial opportunity was stressed during the event as well, because this is a decisive moment for the automobile, energy technology and environmental sectors, opening a pioneering field for the development of software for recharging batteries and smart networks (smart grid).

Many companies were present at the event to support this initiative, including leaders in various sectors – infrastructures, energy management, automobile, etc. – including Bergé y Cía. All of these companies are an essential part of the development and implementation of this plan.
