About Romain

Romain is living off-grid with his family in one of the most beautiful tropical islands, Palawan, in the Philippines.

Romain is a Chemical Engineer with a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Ecole Polytechnique, France. He is a surface science specialist and an electrochemist.

He dedicated his studies and early career to scientific research in renewable energy. His first research project goes back to 2006 when he contributed to developing hydrogen storage material for Philips in the Netherlands. In 2010, he completed his Ph.D. thesis: “Toward hydrogen photoproduction by immobilized bio-inspired catalysts.” The thesis was supported by a co-authored article published in Science.

In 2011, he joined the French National Research Agency to support ambitious research projects in the field of Energy. For 7 years, he supervised hundreds of fundamental and applied research projects covering a broad spectrum, including the Energy economy, solar energy, battery storage, smart grids, hydrogen technology, and thermoelectricity.

Currently, he is developing an eco-resort in the Ulugan Bay, near one of the natural wonders of our world, The Sabang Underground River, Palawan, Philippines. Ocean Green is a project focused on sustainability and self-sufficiency. It’s a lodge and an experimental field for sustainable resort development.

Romain led the project in developing an 11 – 30kW off-grid solar system, rainwater collectors, and geo-filters alongside an organic garden for their farm-to-table restaurant and to supply the local market.

Romain also loves sharing his knowledge and practical applications. That’s why he was one of the first to join the team at Climatebiz in 2020.

You will find most of his articles on the topics related to solar energy and battery storage.
