Strong believer in the economic and social relevance of energy transition, he has been Director of Development for the Southern Europe – Sub-Saharan Africa region of a French solar farm operator for the last 5 years.
Member of the Executive Committee and respected for his in-depth knowledge of the ecosystem, he selects his advisors carefully. With a background in sales, his legal knowledge is the result of his experience. For his third operation in Niger (a 30mW wind farm), he has maintained his winning formula: combine lawyers who are experts in project financing and contract negotiation and who have experience in the sector, and of agents on the ground. Skilled networker, he is in daily contact with both the in-house teams (development, operational, legal) and his service providers (aggregators, maintainers, manufacturers and suppliers of materials and services). He shares his concerns on current issues with his peers in the industry's unions: delays in multiannual energy programs, the end of guaranteed prices, or adverse developments regarding self-consumption. He believes in a transversal approach and takes part in La Plateforme Verte to anticipate the financing issues that will be shaping this rapidly-growing market. 2020: In January 2018, the International Renewable Energy Agency established that global renewable energy prices (i.e. photovoltaics, onshore and offshore wind, geothermal, biogas, methanization, etc.) will be competitive with conventional resources by 2020.
