Google have joined the line-up for companies presenting at the Energy 2050 Summit. Maud Texier, Carbon Free Energy Lead at Google, will join our online energy event for the ‘New & Evolving Technologies’ Session on Day 1; alongside Meghan Sharp, Head of bp ventures and VP of bp’s innovation engine, Philipp Stratmann, VP Global Business Development at Ocean Power Technologies and Gareth Hughes, UK Representative – Business Development at Carbon Engineering. This session will profile some of the most current and trending new and evolving technologies acting as enablers to a carbon neutral future; from CCS to hydrogen, we will hear about the ground-breaking technologies that are being invested in right now.

Maud Texier is Carbon Free Energy Lead at Google. She leads a team responsible for developing and scaling 24/7 carbon-free energy for Google’s data centers worldwide with various initiatives including new technologies, clean energy supply and policy efforts. Prior to joining Google, Maud was Head of Industrial Energy Products at Tesla, leading the product management group for large-scale batteries for various applications across US, Europe, and APAC markets. Previously, Maud worked for EDF part of the Innovation office in charge of new technologies for the group. Maud holds an MS of engineering in Energy and Power systems from École Centrale Paris.

Following recent announcements from Google that they have now achieved net zero status, we look forward to hearing the latest insights from this multinational technology giant as they enter into their third decade of climate action and their ambitious plans to operate entirely carbon free by 2030.
