Remi Stellfeld | Managing Director at Ciel & Terre Japan


Remi Stellfeld's career journey managing director of Ciel et Terre Japan

While working at Nissan, one of my previous colleagues has transferred to Ciel & Terre Japan and kept updating me about his exciting career in the pioneer world of FPV in Japan. Ever since, I wanted to integrate Ciel & Terre Japan, and the opportunity came to me last year.

What does Ciel & Terre represent to you?

Ciel & Terre is a visionary, unique and dynamic eco-friendly company in the renewable energy field. It is the perfect example of the strong potential for innovation and creativity that France possesses. I am proud being the ambassador of this know-how in Japan. Indeed, the environmentally friendly energy transition solution offered by Ciel & Terre is the key to our success on world-wide level.

According to you, what are Ciel & Terre’s spirit and most important values?

Ciel & Terre can be considered as a big family in which each member is able to offer and showcase its talents. For instance, we give an important place to initiatives and exchanges among Ciel & Terre subsidiaries. This way of working encourage that sharing and allow to find suitable solutions for each region and market. This flexibility brings teamwork cohesion among Ciel & Terre and sustain good relationships with our suppliers or clients.

What qualities do you think Ciel & Terre people have?

To feel comfortable at Ciel & Terre, we cannot be only dreamers of a better world, we need to be ACHIEVERS. And above all, we make projects become possible and successful.
At Ciel & Terre we are all ambitious, idealist and team players to bring sustainable solutions in our demanding world.

So far, what has been the most memorable moment for you and for your team/for the office?

I was very much impressed by our partners. For example, Ito-Chu (one of the biggest general trading companies in Japan) or Mega Banks who trusted and saw an important potential in our French company in Japan.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned from your experience in Ciel & Terre?

Willingness of the team members to provide extra mile to achieve client satisfaction.
Having a cohesion in between multi-cultural, disparate expertise, various experience background, associated with autonomy, trust and international working environment can create a unified team. Thanks to this cohesion, we are able to face any kind of commercial, financial and technical issues.

What is your favourite mantra?

What animates you in your managing director job?

Well, first, the wellness of my team. Especially in Japan, where workaholic attitude is common, I am pushing my team members to focus on life quality and life balance.
Secondly, I realize how much Ciel & Terre is a GLOBAL company, and how much exciting it is having its team members being the main actors for:

  • Globally, spreading sustainable solar solutions from land of the rising sun.
  • Locally, producing and distributing to population surrounding the water surfaces.

What kind of opportunities do you foresee for Ciel & Terre in the upcoming years?

Ciel & Terre will keep leading the FPV worldwide activities by customizing the technology depending on the area and the suitable market scheme. For Japan, it will be a balance in between few huge projects, and a bunch of small projects.

What do you think the future will be like in 10 years?

Development of smart cities producing locally decarbonated electricity feeding smart homes will give us complete control over energy consumption. It will also bring efficiency and will enable us to choose when to buy power from the grid, sell it or store it.
