As part of the Green Transition Challenge, EDF brought together European and African startups, entrepreneurs, and companies with groundbreaking energy projects to develop innovative solutions for a more sustainable future in both continents.

Finalists of the challenge had the chance to pitch their projects during the AU-EU Innovation Festival hosted by the European Union, the African Union, and the Republic of South Africa on June 15, 2023, at the Cape Town International Convention Center in South Africa.

EDF VP Africa, Laurent Clement and Head of communications Africa, Christ Anderson Ahoua Boua, took part in the speakers' panel at the AU-EU Innovation festival where the winner of the Green Transition Challenge was announced and won a spot in the EDF Pulse Africa Program. The winner of the challenge, Pylon (YC S21), is a project that provides an infrastructure management platform for utilities in energy emerging markets.
