    CTAG recognised as Technology Center of the Year

    Last week CTAG attended the IV International Congress of Energy Engineering (iENER’23) in Valencia, a national event that brings together multiple actors in fields related to Energy Engineering, such as sustainable mobility, smart cities, energy service companies…

    Over the two days of the event, our Shuttle was offering regular transport services around La Marina de Valencia, allowing everyone who got on board to enjoy a new form of 100% electric, connected and autonomous mobility.

    As part of this pilot, travellers were introduced to the Green Priority use case, a solution that allows the Shuttle to be connected to the traffic lights on its route, so that they change to green when they detect that the Shuttle is near.

    On the other hand, at the end of the first day of the congress, the AEE ANNUAL AWARDS were presented, a ceremony in which CTAG was recognised as “Technology Center of the Year”. The award was received by Francisco José Sánchez Pons, director of our Electronics and ITS division.

    We thank the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), a leading certification body for professional energy managers worldwide, for recognising our work on autonomous, connected and electric vehicles and towards the search for new models of sustainable mobility.
