Welcome to CaFFEET’14

Join us on November 19th-20th, 2014

It has now been four years that CaFFEET (California France Forum on Energy Efficiency Technologies) happened for the first time. Organized every year by global utility EDF, the Consulate General of France in San Francisco and the Paris Region International Mission Enterprise (PRIME), it aims at promoting technical and scientific collaborations on energy efficiency between France and California, two leaders in achieving low-CO2 economies. 

The fourth edition of CaFFEET will focus on the Smart Factory.
