It’ s my job
UNITe is one of the historical leaders in small hydroelectricity in France. After two recent exemplary achievements (the Meije power plant in 2019 and the Parpaillon power plant, currently under construction), UNITe is launching a dynamic hydroelectric and photovoltaic development program in France and abroad. In this context, I am in charge of identifying new sites for our future developments. I rely on cartographic data, field visits and our network of operators throughout the country. Once the sites have been validated, I establish partnerships with local players, and then I supervise the technical and environmental studies until the authorizations are obtained. The variety of skills required to develop green energy makes this job motivating and exciting.
