Thibaut is a versatile French engineer who joined UNEP DTU (now UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre) in February 2021. His higher education began at the French Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN) where he completed an Environmental Engineering MSc. There he gained extensive knowledge of environmental impact assessment, sustainable urban planning and project management. He then moved on to work as a deputy project manager in a sustainable building design firm, where he engaged in energy savings calculations and the implementation of integrated energy systems, while honing his project management skills.
In 2018, Thibaut joined the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on a Sustainable Energy MSc. through a double-degree program. There he focused on energy savings, integrated energy systems and feasibility studies as well as energy economics.
He graduated from DTU in 2020 after realising his master thesis in collaboration with UNEP DTU (now UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre). This project explored the electrification of informal settlements using off-grid hybrid systems, and gave him a thorough understanding of informal settlements dynamics, along with technology needs assessment and energy system modelling. He went on to give lectures about his research project at the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences (RAOS) in Brussels.
He is currently part of the Copenhagen Center for Energy Efficiency (C2E2) and is chiefly involved in technical assessment of district heating and energy efficiency projects in low and middle income countries, while also providing support with the creation of webinars, workshops and conferences.
