Founder & Chairman
Ciel & Terre, France
Bernard Prouvost, born in France, graduated in 1971 from the Paris “Institut d’Etudes Politiques”, also called “SciencesPo”, a French university well-known for future administration and top business management. After graduating he created and developed several new ventures in the field of sustainable development and innovation.
He ran a small biological farm; opened “fast food” restaurants serving natural and healthy products; managed a consulting company helping client companies with product and service innovations; created a manufacturing company producing high insulation material for housing construction.
Since the year 2000, he has devoted himself entirely to the renewable energy industry. First, by developing wind turbine farms in France; then, from 2006 until now, building solar arrays. He started on large- size roof top systems, and is now on to water reservoirs: the “floating Solar” technology he created through his company, “Ciel et Terre”.
Holding the majority of the shares within the company, he passed over the operational leadership to his partner in the organization, while remaining chairman.
