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 accelerating a low-carbon, customer-centric electricity system by unleashing the potential of blockchain and other decentralized technologies.
