French energy giant TotalEnergies (TTE) is a prestigious shareholder at EIT InnoEnergy – and a company with highly coveted internships. Formerly a classic oil and gas titan, their transformation and commitment to net zero by 2050 (with society) has them poised to be a significant player in the energy transition. Two students from the Master’s in Renewable Energies programme, who also happen to be twin brothers, share what it’s like to work on their master’s thesis there!
These brothers are committed to playing an important role in the energy transition and find their work at TTE a great start. Frederik says, “The vast amount of diversity, knowledge and expertise wielded by TTE is inspiring. And Paris is a great city to start your professional career in, given the amount of HQs, international corporations, etc. – Plus, there’s always something fun to do!” Alex adds, “I get to learn from some of the brightest people in this space, motivating me to do my best. And I think learning about the actual, practical, and economic development of renewable energy projects will benefit me, no matter where I end up. On top of that, the TotalEnergies name is a great addition to the resume, as it’s synonymous with excellence. I’m very grateful for the direction the EIT InnoEnergy programme has allowed me to take so far!”
