With access to Europe’s leading energy companies, EIT InnoEnergy Master School students have their pick of many exciting thesis projects. Two students give an insider’s view into working with industry giant and EIT InnoEnergy shareholder company ENGIE – an innovative French company accelerating the transition towards a carbon-neutral economy through reduced energy consumption and more environmentally-friendly solutions. Let’s hear how MSc in Renewable Energy students Siddharth Pandit and Jithin Jomy’s thesis at ENGIE, in collaboration with KTH Climate Action Centre, is going!
Jithin shares how this thesis is heading them in the direction they want to go: “We believe that working on this topic will give both of us a much-needed understanding of the field of sustainability assessments, circularity, and impact consulting – along with the various aspects to focus on integrating sustainability and circularity in every domain. Every organisation is trying to make their businesses more sustainable, and that’s where the work we are doing at ENGIE could play a critical role. Personally, I am keen to explore the fields of energy markets, energy data modelling, and optimisation. The insights gained from the EIT InnoEnergy master’s programme have sparked a fascination to work in interdisciplinary areas, where diverse fields can converge to create innovative solutions.” And Siddharth? He explains, “I would love to gain some valuable experience related to management, finance, and operations in an organisation and then eventually build my own start-up in the energy domain. And I am certain that the learnings throughout the EIT InnoEnergy programme will aid me in doing just that!”
