Serge Kréhi AGBLI, Ph.D.
Power Systems Expert
Kréhi Serge received his Master’s degree in electrical and electronic systems from Félix Houphouët-Boigny University (Cote d’Ivoire) and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Bourgogne Franche-Comté in Belfort (France). As a postdoctoral researcher for FEMTO-ST laboratory at the Fuel Cell Lab in Belfort (France), he was involved in several industrial and academic projects which focused on railcars, locomotives, and automotive projects to reduce fuel consumption and carbon footprint through energetic hybridization and energy management strategies making use of energy storage technologies (i.e. flywheels, batteries, supercapacitors, lithium-capacitors). Additionally, as a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratoire Universitaire des Sciences Appliquées de Cherbourg (France), his work focused on on-shore and off-shore, grid-connected and off grid-based renewable energy systems coupled with MW-scale hydrogen production using PEM electrolysis. Additionally, Kréhi Serge is a reviewer in several scientific journals (i.e. Applied Energy, IEEE Energy Conversion, International Journal of Hydrogen energy). Kréhi Serge works at Clean Horizon as a power systems expert and conducts research and development regarding storage-based power system modelling and optimization. He is in charge of dynamic modelling of electrical grids, assessing the energy storage integration benefits while guaranteeing the power system stability. Kréhi Serge speaks English and French and possesses notions of Spanish.
