3E announces new CEO


The renewable energy market entered a new era, uncovering unpredicted market growth rates and unrivalled competitiveness. Considering the importance of the sector as the major driving force in our transformation to a zero-emission society, this changing context needs to be addressed with specific measures.

Since its establishment in 1999, 3E has served its customers and clients in over 60 countries from its offices in Brussels, Paris, Toulouse, Barcelona, Istanbul, Cape Town and Delhi. Since 2010, 3E has successfully evolved from a pure consultancy company to a technology company, offering software and data services.

In this rapidly expanding renewable energy market, 3E aims at further increasing its impact and footprint. To do so, 3E has developed a new strategic plan aiming at further internationalizing into new markets and increasing its impact through offering data intelligence, digital solutions and expert services to maximise the value of renewable energy assets.

To carry out this strategy, Stef Goossens was appointed as CEO on December 1st.

Expressing his gratitude to 3E, Stef says: “3E makes a major contribution to the renewable energy ecosystem and, like all things in the current economic, environmental and social climate, must adapt to prevailing and rapidly changing conditions.

He adds: “I am looking forward to taking on this challenging role and to working with the current and new members of the team, and of course the numerous partners that make this extraordinary undertaking possible.

Geert Palmers and Werner Coppye, both founders and executive directors, will respectively lead the company’s strategy and technology roadmaps to ensure its international expansion and technological leadership. Also Naïma Vande Walle, who as been working for 9 years at 3E in different positions including Head of Consultancy, has been appointed as Operations Director. In addition Santiago Estrada, after 4 years managing international business development activities and driving the implementation of new markets and services, has been appointed as Commercial Director.

We look forward to continuing our journey with our team, clients and partners!
