Michael obtained his engineer’s degree at Mines ParisTech in France and his Ph.D. at Stanford in the USA. He witnessed the booming of cleantech venture capital and entrepreneurship while an academic in the Silicon Valley, and then went on to become a management consultant at McKinsey in Paris.
Since 2009, Michael has believed that a high penetration of renewable energy can only be possible if a strong energy storage sector is formed. He thus founded Clean Horizon to help companies develop their energy storage business, by providing expert market information and business development services.
Since 2009 Paris-based Clean Horizon has confirmed its status as one the very few, if not the only, boutique consultancies in the world specialized solely on energy storage.
Clean Horizon is active globally (Europe, USA, Asia) and across value chains. Its customer basis comprises storage equipment vendors, project developers, utilities and investors.
