Paolo Natali, Ph.D.

Sr. Associate


Paolo is a Sr. Associate at RMI, currently working in the Business Renewables Center. He is an expert in energy markets and joined RMI in September 2015.


Paolo comes to RMI with a wide energy expertise matured in the oil&gas industry and across different geographies. He held roles in regulation, business development and commercial strategy for natural gas at Statoil, during an interesting time in which the company, among other things, invested in US shale gas production. More recently he spent time as an oil and products originator for Eni Trading & Shipping, focusing again on the US, as well as East Africa. Prior to turning to the private sector, he served at the World Bank, the Council of the European Union, and NATO.

Paolo has published on topics related to natural gas, electricity and energy policy, and has been a fellow of the Transatlantic Academy in 2012. He teaches an annual course on the value chain of gas and electricity at Sciences Po, in Paris.
