Association Webinars: Electromobility: Technical Solutions for System Integration


The world is looking for sustainable individual mobility solutions.

Several large metropolises are banning access to their city centres. Automobile manufacturers are improving the performance of electric vehicles to meet user demand, by increasing vehicle autonomy and seeking a competitive total cost of ownership. But there are other answers that can come from the electric system: in this webinar, we will discuss the efforts of stakeholders seeking to adapt the current electric system to the needs of electromobility.

The speakers will then answer questions online.

Yannick Perez, is professor of economics of energy and mobility at CentraleSupélec. He holds the Armand Peugeot Chair on technical and economic analysis of electromobility, a partnership between CentraleSupélec, ESSEC Business School and the PSA Groupe. Yannick Perez has published more than 70 scientific articles on the issues of competitive and environmental reforms in the electrical industry, the design of electrical markets and finally the analysis of public energy policies applied to Electric Vehicles.


Rémy le Boennec, holds a PhD in economics. His main research interests lie in environmental economics, urban economics, hedonic pricing, spatial econometrics and decision-aid support, applied to land use and transportation issues. He currently works at the VEDECOM Institute, as head of the research axis 'Territories and mobility offers' in Versailles. He is also associate researcher at CentraleSupélec (LGI), University of Paris-Saclay (France)

Emilia Suomalainen is currently Project Lead in Shared Energy at VEDECOM, managing research projects on the deployment of EV charging infrastructure and related energy services (V2H, V2G) with a focus on technico-economic assessment, deployment strategy, new services, business models, externalities and regulatory framework. Emilia has a PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland where she conducted case studies in circular economy for the Canton of Geneva. She also has a MSci.Tech. from the Helsinki University of Technology (now part of Aalto University) in the field of Operations Research and Systems Analysis. Emilia has worked as a project manager and senior consultant in the field on transport and environment for several years.

Icaro Freitas Gomes completed his bachelor's degree in electrical and computer engineering at the Federal University of Ceara in Brazil. He then continued his studies as part of a double degree program between Brazil and France with an academic scholarship to complete his Master at the engineering school CentraleSupélec (Paris region, France) in energy conversion . Currently, he is a doctoral candidate in energy economics at Paris-Saclay University and researcher-doctoral student at the VEDECOM Institute (Versailles, France) since September 2018.

Christophe Bonnery is President 2019 of the International Association for Energy Economics. He is Vice President, Economics & Prospective, ENEDIS, the French power distribution company. He is also President of the French Association for Energy Economics since 2009. He created the French Circle of Energy Economists, to promote energy economics to energy policy makers. He created the Marcel Boiteux Award, which recognizes the best book on energy economics. Recently he was Vice President, Energy Policy for the AREVA Group. His role consisted in understanding current energy policies and promoting acceptable evolutions for all stakeholders. He also led for a program aiming to define potential synergies between nuclear and oil industries for heavy oil production. Mr. Bonnery received his M.Sc in General Engineering from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers, Paris, France, and MBA in Petroleum Economics and Management from the Center for Economics and Management, IFP School, Paris, France.
