Imagine 2030: How about telling you stories from the future?

By ENGIE - 01 March 2019 - 17:57

Imagine 2030 is a vast in-house consultation process intended to liberate everyone’s energy and creativity to provide a positive vision of the future. More widely, this consultation lays the foundations of the Group’s new strategy and our purpose, focused on harmonious progress.

Imagine 2030 was an opportunity for all ENGIE’s Imaginative Builders to project themselves, just like futurists, to a day in 2030. How will we live tomorrow? How will we get around? What futures are desirable for the energy sector? You will find a selection of eight stories dreamed up by in-house teams. They explore new technologies, of course (driverless cars, virtual reality, renewable energies), and offer a collective vision of a humanistic and optimistic future. Turn up the sound, close your eyes, open your ears and immerse yourself in 2030. Enjoy listening!

Gaëlle Falleguerho, « Data and me »

data et moi







To look ahead to 2030, Gaëlle Falleguerho, 42, Datasolution service pilot at ENGIE IT, drew direct inspiration from her core business, data. Improving working methods to serve humans better is one of her priorities. For Gaëlle, Imagine 2030 has much in common with the Imaginative Builders initiative: daring to suggest ideas, seeking to improve operational methods to combine innovation with sustainable development. Her hope for the future? Keep a positive frame of mind and believe in our ability to change things.

Salvatore Giuliana, « ENGIE my friend »

At the age of 50, profit centre director in the digital infrastructure sector at ENGIE Ineo Infracom and Ineo Digital, Salvatore confidently looks ahead to the technological, humanist future of his Group, won over by the personality and strategic choices of its CEO. His definition of an Imaginative Builder? A "builder-architect" who puts people first.

Régis Lavisse, « Proud of her »








Combining tomorrow’s societal problems with the personal, tangible reality of each individual, this is what guided Régis Lavisse when looking ahead to 2030. In charge of employee experience at ENGIE Digital, Régis, 44, enjoys the idea of associating concepts that might at first glance appear diametrically opposed, like Imaginative and Builder, which he sums up as "having your head in the stars and your feet on the ground". And while he doesn’t see the future through rose-coloured glasses, he’s determined to do his best to make it as pleasant as possible.

Estelle Esparcieux, « I have a dream »








Estelle Esparcieux, 28, Practice Director at ENGIE Cofely's Marketing Innovation Department, represents one of the teams brought together by the Win network (the ENGIE women’s network) for a special "Imagine 2030" day. For Estelle, their experience perfectly embodies the values of the Imaginative Builders: being open to others, having the boldness to suggest an ambitious future, benevolence in terms of thinking up a story about mutual assistance, meticulously pursuing our reflections. Her motto for the future? Human imagination has no limits!

Charles Classiot, « Ma maison intelligente »








Maintenance Support Agency Manager at Engie Green, Charles Classiot, 38, has been at the service of renewable energy for over 15 years.

Marion Manhes, « Open education »








What Marion Manhes, 31, Project Manager New Markets and Strategy at Storengy, wants most of all is to work for a company that puts social and environmental issues at the core of its business. So she was keen to take part in the workshop organised by the Win network (the ENGIE women's network) to imagine the future in 2030. This story emerged from the reflections of eight women of all ages and professions, with Marion as the spokesperson. Her definition of an Imaginative Builder? Waking up every morning to help the world evolve!

Stéfan Rickaert, « Une belle journée »








Stéfan Rickaert imagines life in 2030 to be very different, closer to his social concerns than his professional ones. Vice President Gas at Tractebel, Stéfan, 58, is prone to dreaming about a better world, one that’s inclusive, tolerant and open, in harmony with the earth. But he keeps his feet firmly on the ground. He has a very clear definition of the Imaginative Builder: a visionary who develops solutions to help people, in harmony with the planet and its human and environmental challenges.
