Fabrice PoulinFabrice POULIN

Team Manager
CleanTech Department

I am coming from Burgundy. Through studies and work, I lived in Germany, South Korea, Japan & Spain. Intercultural aspects are so enriching and fulfilling.

On the education side, I have always been interested in science. I got trained in electronics and then business/marketing became my major. This dual training helped a lot in the semiconductor where I was marketer and business developer and, finally, team manager. In 2009, there were still 2 unaddressed topics: my interest in ecology and in entrepreneurship. That’s how I created my consultancy in clean energy. The “Infinergia” adventure lasted 12 years, then we decided to join forces with our neighbour Enerdata, in October 2021.

On the personal side, I love everything related to outdoor activities: hiking, cycling, and anything related to water (canoeing, diving, swimming). I also like DIY, building or repairing stuff.

My motto (from Jacques Coeur, a historical Frenchman): “To the brave hearts, nothing is impossible”.

Baptiste PosséméBaptiste POSSEME

Market Analyst
CleanTech Department

I grew up in the Paris region and then went to Toulouse to take my engineering degree at ISAE-Supaéro. I worked in the energy sector from the beginning of my career, starting with 7 years in a management consulting firm, mainly for large players.

After a (long) trip to the other side of the world, I settled in Grenoble in 2018, joining Infinergia. My role is to help developers of innovations in renewable energy to understand their market.

In 2021, I joined Enerdata through the acquisition of Infinergia. I am now continuing my activity within the Cleantech team.

Outside of work, I enjoy my family, the Grenoble environment (climbing, skiing and hiking) and amateur music (guitar and trombone). You may come across me in the streets of Grenoble!

Alice JACQUET

Senior Analyst - Hydrogen
CleanTech Department

After obtaining my engineering degree in Paris, I decided to come back to my hometown, Grenoble, to follow a master’s degree in Energy Management & Marketing at the Grenoble Business School.

For the past two years, I worked at Infinergia, a consulting firm specialised in clean energy markets. In charge of the Hydrogen practice, I was able to support clients by carrying out market studies of technological innovations (market access strategy, strategic & operational support) and by supporting territorial projects. I also had the opportunity to work on other energy topics (storage, biomethane and more). In the context of Enerdata's acquisition of Infinergia, I am continuing these activities.

On a more personal note, I like to hang out with my friends and go running (yes, the lockdown cost me my two main hobbies).

Corentin Boillet

Corentin BOILLET

Junior Analyst
CleanTech Department

I come from Paris, which I left to study in the Alps. I started with an engineering degree in Energy, Building and Environment at Polytech Chambéry, and then I completed my training with a master's degree in energy management and marketing at Grenoble Ecole de Mangement/Ense3. During my engineering studies, I went to study one semester in Canada.

Before joining Enerdata, I worked for a year as an energy engineer in the wood-energy industry. Now, at Enerdata, I am in the Clean Tech team where I conduct market research on innovations in the sustainable energy field.

I am passionate about outdoor sports (trail running, cross-country skiing) and competitive road cycling. I also like ornithology, and most activities related to nature and ecology.

Thibault Fonteneau

Thibaut FONTENEAU

Energy & Climate Analyst
Research Department

I was born and raised in Valence (Drôme). I arrived in Grenoble in 2012 to study in Sciences Po where I obtained a bachelor’s in political sciences and a master’s in science and Technologies Studies, in partnership with INP Graduate schools of Engineering. Passionate about energy and sociotechnical topics in general, in 2017, I joined the research laboratory Pacte, as a PhD student in economic sociology. I carried out an investigation on the implementation of new public policies for solar energy.

I joined Enerdata's Market Research team in October 2021, where I mainly carry out market monitoring missions.

Outside of work I enjoy film photography, cooking, hiking and electronic music. I still have a strong taste for social sciences, especially sociology.

Joseph Bon-Mardion

Joseph BON-MARDION

Senior Energy Analyst
Market Research Department

Originally from Normandy, I moved to the Rhône-Alpes region after my studies.

As an engineer, I worked for 10 years in the management and development of energy production projects, mainly solar. In 2021, before joining Enerdata, I obtained a master's degree in economics specialising in the energy sector. I provide analyses, participate in our clients’ projects (institutions, large energy groups, etc.) and am in charge of new product development.

Outside of work, I like to play music, and I am often in the mountains to practice climbing, cross-country skiing or mountaineering.

Baptiste Allafort

Baptiste ALLAFORT

Data Analyst
Energy & Climate Statistics Department

In 2016, I graduated from an engineering school in Bordeaux, the ENSEIRB-MATMECA, with a speciality in Mathematics and Mechanics around modelling and digital simulation. Although I am originally from La Rochelle, I discovered Grenoble’s mountains during my last internship, which I have never left since!

I worked for 4 years as a Structural Calculation Engineer at POMA, specialising in the ski lift sector. In concrete terms, I was making mechanical models that were representative of physical reality to dimension the mechanical structures that surround us (and to ensure that the cable car does not fall back to the ground if the wind picks up!).

Since I started working, my aspirations have changed a lot, and I have gradually become aware of the energy and climate issues. In 2020, I therefore initiated a career change, by integrating a Master 2 in Energy Economics, offered at the University of Grenoble. Following an internship in a sustainable development consultancy, I had the pleasure to join the data team at Enerdata in September 2021.

When I am not working on energy assessments, I go hiking, play music (bass, drums) and participate in festivals!

Jérome PINJON

Jérome PINJON

Web Developer
Information Systems Department

Originally from Grenoble, I started my studies with chemistry, which I continued in Lyon. I then worked in research laboratories, in industry or in analysis laboratories for several years before deciding a career change.

To become a web developer, I did a cooperative education, specialising in PHP/Symfony. Enerdata was looking for a developer with my profile, and I wanted to increase my skills by working on more ambitious projects. This is how I joined the information systems team in October 2021.

I have long been passionate about new technologies such as modelling and 3D printing, which occupy a lot of my free time.
