I am a consultant with a purpose: building bridges between people (especially the most vulnerable), scientists and policymakers, in energy and climate transitions. For the past 10 years, I’ve been focusing my work on consumer protection and empowerment issues. I’ve come to the conclusion that if people are not heard, then societies cannot become truly resilient to climate change. I worked for many years in Brussels with energy ombudsmen, and now I am located in Italy, where I founded Next Energy Consumer. As soon as I got my degrees in political sciences and economics, I left France, and since then, I’ve spent most of my adult life elsewhere. Until now, I’ve mostly worked at EU level, but I’m expanding my reach to Latin America and Africa, because there is so much to learn! Click HERE to read policy insights from Marine Cornelis.
