Our Editorial Board

Launched in September 2014, the new Planète Energies is overseen and endorsed by an Editorial Board made up of 17 independent energy experts from outside Total, who are all leaders in academia, industry, research and communications.  The Editorial Board meets every six months to set the main directions for the website, ensure its objectivity and accessibility, and outline the topics for feature reports and other topics to be covered. Non-energy specialists from the world of education also sit on the Editorial Board, to ensure that the content published on the site is of a high standard. The site is managed on a day-to-day basis by an Editorial Committee made up of information and communications professionals. The Committee meets monthly. It invites the members of the Editorial Board to participate in meetings on the topics that concern them, to determine the best way of explaining subjects and check the accuracy and scientific rigor of the content.
