Introducing Our New Staff Members

23 Sep 2019

Staff numbers are on the rise at Enerdata, and we’re excited to introduce this year’s crop (so far):

 

Victor BERENGER

Energy & Climate Policy Analyst
Data & Market Research Department

I hold a master's degree in international economics and development from the University of Grenoble and studied in Greece and in Singapore.

Before joining Enerdata, I worked as a business reporter at a Paris-based magazine focused on African politics and economy, and as an economist in Indonesia and in Nigeria.

Outside of work, I'm passionate about jazz music and Nigerian literature.

Thomas KNIGHT

Energy Analyst
Data & Research Department – Research Team

I am a friendly Brit who grew up on the isle across the Channel, the UK. Here at Enerdata I am part of the Research team, contributing to large client projects, as well as small pieces of daily analysis.

Before the exciting move to France in January 2018, I worked in the energy sector in London, after obtaining a master’s degree in Sustainable Energy Engineering.

I am a keen rugby fan, musician and volunteer, with a fascination in foreign cultures, having had the opportunity to visit many countries.

Esteban DROUET 

Junior Energy Analyst
Département Global Energy 
Forecasting

I grew up in Le Mans, near Nantes, and I came in Grenoble four years ago. I graduated as engineer from Grenoble Institute of Technology in 2019, then I joined the Global Energy Forecasting Team of Enerdata as Junior Energy Analyst. 

Prior to this, I did a gap year during which I went to Cameroon for working as Operations Analyst in a start-up. 

I like climbing, hiking and running, thus Grenoble sounds perfect for that. Furthermore, I enjoy discovering topics I know a little, especially in the biology and astronomy fields.  

Sindy LEFEVRE

Web Developer
Information Systems Department

I joined the Information Systems team in May for a graduation internship as a Developer. I’m now continuing the Enerdata adventure for one year in a work-study program to prepare my diploma as a Web and Mobile Designer & Developer.

The expertise and experience of the team in which I work allows me to acquire valuable skills and participate in exciting projects.

In the past, I have worked in environmental management and protection, in the field of botany.

In parallel to my work, I am involved in a botanical association for which I carry out Web projects.

Elodie PARISOT-HÜBNER

Marketing and Communications Manager
Marketing & Sales Department

A communication specialist, I'm originally from Grenoble but I've been away for the past 15 years. I just came back from a 3-year stint in India as a communication manager for an Indo-European clean technologies consulting company, and before that spent time in Germany, Belgium and Norway (and occasionally France), working for research centres, embassies and consultancies.

I hold a master's degree in European affairs from Sciences Po Paris, and speak French, English and German. Here at Enerdata, I've taken over communication activities and market monitoring. Oh, and I'm the "official" German proofer as well.

I love travelling and discovering other cultures, a pastime I shamelessly indulge whenever possible. I was spoiled for choice when in Delhi, but I'm now excited to re-discover my home region.
