Project Management & Overall Coordination

Francisco speaks English, German, Portuguese, Spanish


Francisco joined Energy Cities in April 2017 to manage projects on urban sustainable energy management, smart cities and citizen participation. He holds an MSc in Environmental Engineering, an Executive Master in Management and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

Francisco believes cities’ and communities’ actions are key for an effective energy transition. Before joining Energy Cities, he worked for almost a decade at Lisboa E-Nova (Lisbon Energy and Environment Agency). During that time, he gained a deep knowledge on how cities and their stakeholders operate. His areas of expertise are sustainable energy management (renewables and energy efficiency), climate change mitigation and supporting local authorities in planning and implementing sustainable energy and environment policies. He identifies himself with the “Bruxellois” relaxed way of living, reflected in the way citizens occupy the public space!
