  • 11:00 – 11:30        Talk :  "Natural hydrogen: a game changer?"

    Speaker : Olivier Lhote

    Olivier Lhote is director of the natural hydrogen project at Engie and coordinates various exploration projects, particularly in Brazil and France, and research subjects, particularly around the kinetics and behavior of hydrogen in the subsurface. He previously worked in the technical department of the Hydrogen Business Unit on storage (surface and subsurface) and transport (gas pipelines, liquefaction and hydrogen carrier molecules) activities for industrial and R&D projects for hydrogen production by electrolysis powered by renewable energies. Previously, he spent most of his activity in the gas sector in exploration-production, first as an engineer with Total in Africa and in Europe, then with Engie in various positions as project manager, asset manager, portfolio manager of assets, and responsible for all Geosciences activities of Engie's upstream activities mainly located in Northern Europe and North Africa, including direct management of exploration.

  • 10:30 – 11:30         Talk : "Solar for Savings Groups: a win-win-win!"

    Harnessing the Power of Community Savings Groups to deliver better Access to Energy.

    Speakers :
     Donal Connolly, Natalia Batista

  • 11:00 - 11:30 PM            Round Table :  "HyPSTER, the missing link for the industrialization of renewable hydrogen on a large scale

    Until now, an important link was still missing in the industrialization of renewable hydrogen, its large-scale storage. Come and discover how Storengy and its six partners are working to build this first European pilot.

    Speakers : Germain Hurtado , Franz Danyach , Arnaud Berthet

  • 11:30 - 12:30     Round Table :  "Electrification of society: challenges and opportunities".

    In this roundtable, ENGIE Laborelec experts will address the challenges raised by the electrification of uses in everyday life and how research and innovation allow ENGIE to respond to them.

Speakers : Laurent De Vroey , Rafaël Jahn, Cathy Crunelle, Benoît Codrons

  • 01:30 – 02:00 PM     Talk : 'Renewable CoP Days (INTERNAL)" with Paulo Almirante

  • 01:30 – 02:00 PM     Talk : "Blue Carbon"

    The Blue Carbon project aims to help rehabilitating areas of Abu Dhabi’s mangroves using drone technology, as mangroves are vital to their ecosystems and to help storing CO2, more commonly known as "blue carbon", term used for carbon captured by the world's oceans and coastal ecosystems. The project is a partnership between ENGIE and the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi who are hosting the site as well as providing scientific expertise. The project is a test pilot with high caliber scientists from both EAD (environment Agency – Abu Dhabi) and Distant Imagery, the process and methodology are scientifically rigorous, and data driven.

    Speakers : 
    Éléonore Lauret , Florence Fontani

  • 02:00 - 03:00     Talk : "Thermal ways to decarbonize the Power generation"
The carbon neutral generation will reached through 3 main parallel tracks, which will require major innovation efforts.

Speakers : Guillaume Bregentzer, Yannick Luis

  • 03:00 - 03:30     Talk : "Liquid hydrogen: Zero-Emission solution for heavy-duty mobility

    Speakers : 
    Frédéric Legrand

    Energy and Process Engineer. I joined ENGIE in 2011. I held various positions within CRIGEN: Research engineer, project manager, program manager and currently lab manager. I worked on two main themes: LNG and green gas (hydrogen and Biogas).

  • 03:00 - 03:30     Talk : "ENGIE Energy Access : an inclusive and sustainable business to close the energy gap in Africa"

    Meet the management in this roundtable where we will demonstrate how our integrated approach ultimately contributes to providing energy access to non-connected communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Thanks to this integrated approach promoted by a single entity, our ambition is to be a leading decentralized clean energy company that impacts 20 million lives by 2025.

    Speakers : 
    Gillian-Alexandre Huart, Stefan Zelazny, Maxime Marion, Benedikt Lenders

  • 04:30 - 05:30    Round Table : "How is digital a business performance accelerator for ENGIE?"
