Philippe brings management skills to ITP’s Engineering division gained from his experience managing large ITP projects across Australia and the Pacific, and a pragmatic approach founded on his time solving complex engineering challenges.
Philippe has extensive experience in remote area PV hybrid mini-grids in the Pacific, as well as large-scale grid-connected PV and micro-grid experience in the Pacific and in Australia. His skillset bridges the technical, managerial and financial aspects of renewable energy projects, having worked variously as lead design engineer, project manager, contract manager, and financial analyst. His experience both as client-side engineer and as lead design engineer have given him a good understanding of the real-world challenges facing project developers, designers, owners, and end-users.
Philippe has a EUREC Masters in Renewable Energy from the University of Oldenburg and University of Kassel, and Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Ottawa. His background in both mechanical and electrical engineering provide an end-to-end understanding of electricity generation and consumption, which helps him identify opportunities and create value for clients.
