Etienne Gehain

Etienne is a council member of the Energy Web Foundation. He is also digital innovation officer and Group spokesman for digital issues at Engie, formerly known as GDF SUEZ, where he is in charge of bringing digital technologies, including blockchain, to the Group’s business units in order to develop new products and services.

As head of corporate R&D programs for digital and energy storage for the past 6 years, he has funded—and followed—tests and proof of concepts on blockchain technologies within Engie. In 2017, he joined Engie Fab, a new entity developing disruptive offers based on digital technologies. As their chief technology officer, he specified their digital platform, and contributed to offers in the fields of energy communities and green mobility.

Prior to Engie, Etienne spent more than 10 years in R&D at Gaz de France, studying the use of natural gas in fuels cells and coordinating a European FP6 collaborative project on the insertion of distributed energy resources in electricity grids (EU-DEEP).

Etienne earned a PhD in electrochemistry at Middlesex University (London).

The Energy Web is an open-source, scalable blockchain platform specifically designed for the energy sector’s regulatory, operational, and market needs.

Austrian Power Grid AG and @energywebx's #blockchain PoC for the energy sector ... could prove to be "one of the most valuable use cases of distributed ledger technology (#DLT) in the energy sector." https://hubs.ly/H0mH0p40

“We believe that a decentralized approach, combining both cutting-edge tech ... such as #blockchain and proven legacy IT systems for grid operation, is the future of power grids around the world." More on our proof of concept with APG from @LedgerInsights:
