Bolloré Logistics and BlueSolutions present at the African Energy Forum (AEF)

July 8th, 2019

The Bolloré Logistics (Africa Projects) and BlueSolutions teams participated together in the 21st edition of the Africa Energy Forum (AEF) in Lisbon, Portugal, from June 11th to 14th.

​Devoted to the development of energy, infrastructure, and industrial sectors on the African continent, this forum welcomes African and international decision-makers, developers and integrators specializing in the energy field.

The purpose of this forum is to stimulate investment throughout Africa, and accelerate its electrification, particularly by reducing the significantly strong inequalities between the countries of the North of the continent and the others.

This event is a very good showcase for the Bolloré Group with the opportunity for our teams to meet all the players in the sector and explain the strength of our offer in both transport and logistics but also in the field of energy storage associated with the development of renewable energies.
