Olivier Andry

Olivier ANDRY

Data Analyst
Energy & Climate Statistics Department

Born and raised in Annecy, I first came to Grenoble to study Physics, Mathematics and Mechanics at the university. Passionate about geophysical fluid dynamics, I moved to the Netherlands to pursue a PhD in climatology at the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and Wageningen University. There, I studied rapid Arctic Climate Change and its impact on the mid-latitudes.

I joined Enerdata in the Energy & Climate Statistics team in March 2022 to indulge my interest in everything to do with energy, which I believe to be the paramount issue for the next couple of decades.

I am also very curious and enthusiastic about Artificial Intelligence as a tool to improve data quality and data analysis.

On the leisure side, I spend my time in the mountains enjoying all activities they have to offer (skiing, rock climbing, cycling, mountaineering, …). I also enjoy reading, cooking and spend time with my friends.

Magali Mellon

Magali MELLON

Junior Analyst
Global Energy Forecasting Department

I grew up amidst fields and forests in the Yvelines, Paris’ countryside. Then I entered Ecole Centrale Paris for a Master of Science in engineering, providing to me a broad background and enriching me with associative experiences. Eventually, I completed my studies with almost two years at KTH, Stockholm. Driven by my passion for nature and the environment, I chose to study renewable energy generation and energy systems. I am also keen on exploring optimisation-related topics and data-science. I joined Enerdata in April 2022 as part of the Global Energy Forecasting team to follow my concerns and interest in the energy transition.

On a personal note, I love any nature-related and outdoor adventures (mountain-biking, hiking, kayaking...) and practice long-distance trail running and multisports in competition. I am also very curious about other cultures, cinema, and thought-provoking readings.

Jacques DESPRES

Jacques DESPRES

Senior Analyst
Global Energy Forecasting Department

How on earth can the energy system move to a sustainable version? This is the question I wish I could answer and this is why I joined Enerdata in 2022…

I travelled from the wine-region of Bergerac in the South-West of France to the Paris area to graduate as an electrical engineer MSc in Supélec, with a (renewable) energy major. I then got an energy engineering-economics PhD in Grenoble – and had my first contacts with Enerdata – and worked there as well before joining the European Commission Joint Research Centre for six years in Spain.

Having finished my contract, I came back to the Grenoble Mountains and joined the growing Enerdata team of energy modelers. As a senior analyst and project manager, I like having a variety of missions and interactions with colleagues, partners and clients.

I also like going out in nature and sharing time and games with my kid.

Lucie Augier

Lucie AUGIER

Sales Administration Officer

I come from Nantes, but decided to stay in Grenoble in 2006 to finish my studies in communication. I then specialised in infographics in the signage domain, a job combining technical and administrative skills. Over the years, I managed many projects, particularly in Toulouse where I lived for 4 years, implying management team, customer and supplier relationship, file production, etc.

I came back to Grenoble in 2019 with new wishes: no more personal protective equipment, no more dust, I decide to move to administration jobs. Then I joined Enerdata in April 2022 as Sales Administration Officer.

I spend my spare time with my daughter, my friends and family. No matter where, when and what, the important is to spend friendly moments together!

Olivier de Carsalade

Olivier DE CARSALADE

Energy and Climate Junior Analyst
Innovation Department

Raised on a small island in the Mozambique canal, I then arrived in Lyon in 2017 to follow the Master “climate finance and energy policies “ of EM LYON business school. 

After an internship in Carbon4finance, I joined Enerdata in March 2022 as an Energy & Climate Analyst in the Innovation team to develop Climate finance solutions and decarbonisation pathways for corporates. 

Aside from work, I am feverish about outdoor sports: ski mountaineering, rock climbing, paragliding and cycling. I try to practice outdoors sport in a low carbon way, not to damage those beautiful mountains.

 

 

 Our New Staff Members in March 2022

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!

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.
