I have been interested in lightning and ways of protecting people and buildings from its destructive powers for over 20 years. A founder member of the French Association of Protection against Lightning (SPD), I am currently marketing manager in Schneider Electric’s Surge Protection Department. I helped draft the surge arrester installation guide UTE C15443 and was a member of the working group that draw up IEC standard 60364-4-443 and the 5-534 update. I have also authored a number of publications on lightning.
