After spending three years at the head of France’s leading district heating network, which provides heat and hot water to 500,000 equivalent housing units, she began a new phase in her career with the ENGIE Group by taking over the management of Storengy, one of the world’s leading underground natural gas storage companies, a developer of geothermal energy solutions and a producer and storer of low-carbon energy.
Camille Bonenfant-Jeanneney began her training at Ecole Polytechnique (2000) and then followed a double degree at École Nationale des Ponts Chaussés and Institut d’études politiques – Sciences-Po. She began her career in European affairs, as a diplomat at the Permanent Representation of France to the European Union (2006-2012) on industrial and environmental issues and as an advisor to the cabinet of the Minister Delegate in charge of European Affairs (2012-2013). In 2013, she joined RATP as head of the Greater Paris mission and then Chief of staff to the Chairman and CEO (2014-2015).
In 2015, she joined the ENGIE Group, initially as Director of NewCorp within the General Secretary. In 2018, she took over the management of the Paris district heating company; as a director of Storengy since 2018, she got to know the company she is joining today.
“Storengy’s identity is built on its innovative activities based on industrial assets operated with a high level of safety and performance. I am delighted to be joining the teams to support the energy transition issues that are driving the sector”, says Camille Bonenfant-Jeanneney.
