Jean Labrie

Jean Labrie

Founder and President

Jean Labrie brings over 30 years of invaluable experience in the trucking, trailer, and heavy-duty machinery industry to C8 Energy. As the founder, his vision was clear from the start: to create a sustainable future for road transportation by eliminating the dependency on lead-acid batteries. This initiative was driven by more than the desire to innovate; it was fueled by a commitment to reduce the sector's carbon footprint, one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in America.

Under his leadership, C8 Energy has developed a kit combining groundbreaking technology that not only decreases fuel consumption and maintenance time but also allows drivers the comfort of using essential electric accessories without the engine running. Jean's ability for making lasting industry connections goes hand-in-hand with his drive to position C8 Energy at the forefront of sustainable practices and improve the driver's experience, embodying our company's core values.
