Oilfield services firm Schlumberger’s New Energy division on Feb. 8 appointed Florence Lambert as the CEO of its Genvia venture, effective March 1.

Lambert brings more than 20 years of experience in new energy technologies and was previously CEO of CEA-LITEN in Grenoble, France.

In January, Schlumberger New Energy, French government-funded research firm CEA and other partners, announced the European Commission’s approval for Genvia, which is a clean hydrogen production technology venture.

Genvia will focus on the development and industrial deployment of an electrolyzer technology for clean hydrogen production.
