Our founders and shareholders

ALLICE (Industrial Alliance for Competitiveness and Energy Efficiency) was created in July 2018, at the initiative of CETIAT, associated with CETIM, CTCPA and ENEA Consulting, and joined in 2020 by CTIF and CTMNC.
ALLICE relies on the skills of these technical centres, as well as ENEA Consulting that specialises in energy transition.


« CETIAT is the Technical Centre for Heating, Air Conditioning and Air Handling Industries, a sector that proposes technologies and equipment to improve energy efficiency in industry. Boosting energy efficiency is the main theme of CETIAT actions and therefore CETIAT’s involvement in the creation of ALLICE was natural.

ALLICE makes it possible to reach across existing borders between industrial sectors to work on energy efficiency, in a fully transversal way with respect to the different fields of activities and technologies.

ALLICE is an extended Technical Centre and like CTIs (Industrial Technical Centres), its operation and governance allow the expectations of each company to be taken into account, whatever its economic weight. »

« Cetim is the Technical Centre of Mechanical Industries. Mechanical engineering is at the heart of industry and consequently of environmental stakes. Without bearings, there would be no wind power; without turbines, there would be no hydraulic, nuclear or biomass electricity production and without clean technology, no preservation of our environment, etc. For many years now, the sector has also been taking steps to improve its own environmental performance by focusing its developments on the priorities defined in the French law on energy transition for green growth (LTECV). To support this production sector, Cetim has amplified its actions in this field and accompanies the sector’s energy transition.

Within the CTI network, Cetim is the Technical Centre of the Decarbonized Industry of the Future and its actions are focused on four priorities: reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints, reducing pollutant emissions, implementing the circular economy and developing renewable energies. These actions support the mechanical industry so that it can accentuate its effort to provide innovative solutions in this field for all industries.

Cetim's action within ALLICE is in line with the natural transfer of know-how in the field of energy efficiency, by connecting players in the value chain to disseminate the best practices of the system approach. The conviviality developed within the Club Prime meetings and the events organized by ALLICE are a major asset for this Energy and Environmental Transition. »

« CTCPA (Technical Centre for the Conservation of Agricultural Products) is an Industrial Technical Centre (CTI) qualified as an Agro-Industrial Technical Institute (ITAI) by the Ministry of Agriculture. It is a member of Actia and the CTI network. It is the reference centre for manufacturers of preserved and dehydrated food products.

Taking up the challenges of companies in our sector and more broadly of the AFIs to move towards sustainable food, we are directing our new Contract of Objectives and Means towards areas of work that will enable them to maintain their activities while helping them to integrate the issues of ecological and energy transitions.

We are convinced that we will be able to bring them the necessary innovations and help them to change through our involvement in ALLICE. The actions that it will deploy through studies, and the connections between all the players in the energy sector will drive the industrial choices of tomorrow. »

« ENEA Consulting is a strategic consulting firm specialized in the challenges of energy and environmental transition. To meet these challenges, ENEA has chosen to support all the players in the energy value chain, from the major global utilities to entrepreneurs involved in access to energy, including financial players (banks and investment funds). ENEA advises them - from the definition of strategy at Executive board and General Management levels to the definition of a marketing, strategic or financial vision - and supports them operationally in the implementation of their project.

ENEA is resolutely independent in its shareholding and expertise, offering a comprehensive approach to energy and environmental topics in order to develop innovative and efficient solutions. ENEA Consulting has 70+ employees in all its offices (Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne), with complementary and varied backgrounds (former Industrial Director of a CAC40 company, entrepreneur, financing expert, technology expert, former CEO of IPP, former CFO of a company specialised in access to energy, etc.), allowing us to offer a real systemic vision to our clients.

Aware that industry is a source of added value for all territories, ENEA has been helping manufacturers and solution providers to adapt their processes and technology portfolios to meet the challenges of industrial decarbonisation in order to maintain and develop the competitiveness of these sectors. Designing an industrial future that reconciles performance and responsibility requires better management of natural resources and the integration of environmental and social dimensions into decisions, whether strategic or operational.

Based on this experience, and on the success of several collaborations with CETIAT, ENEA Consulting is delighted to be one of the founding members of ALLICE. Convinced that decompartmentalizing expertise, strategy and financing is one of the keys to accelerate the decarbonisation of industrial sectors, ENEA Consulting's teams actively participate in ALLICE's development and in the performance of studies for its members. »

« CTMNC is an Industrial Technical Centre (ITC) that works to promote innovative technologies and to develop the quality of building materials in its two sectors: fired-clay material and natural stone. Joining ALLICE has proved to be a real opportunity, as it allows us to go beyond existing borders between industrial sectors to work together on a topic, energy efficiency, which impacts all the different fields of activity and technologies.

We wanted to become a shareholder in the structure because, as a CTI, we knew that we could play a driving role in its development. Moreover, we are now in an innovation approach that includes the implementation within 5 years of a new modular and flexible test platform where we could both test different technologies and measure the impact that they can have on an industrial clay product. These innovations will always have to be fed and thanks to ALLICE, we will remain informed of technology intelligence in a timely manner. It can enable us to federate and build our innovation project and enrich our roadmap over the next few years in line with the predominant energy efficiency issues in our industry, particularly that of decarbonising industry.»

« CTIF is the industrial technical centre for metallurgy and metal processing, a sector that consumes a lot of energy. Improving energy efficiency and accelerating the decarbonisation of the hot metal processing industries are major challenges for our businesses.

By acquiring a stake in ALLICE's capital, CTIF confirms its desire to promote synergies between innovation and industrial players. Being part of this structure means benefiting from the results of shared efforts in technology intelligence, R&D and collaboration between solution providers and customers from very different industrial backgrounds. As of 2020, our industries will be able to participate in 3 collective actions underway within ALLICE: a study on process electrification, an analysis of risk hedging solutions for energy efficiency projects and a study on heat storage technologies. In the coming years, we will have the opportunity to propose other collective action topics of direct interest to our industrial clients. »
