Windpower TV - Siemens CEO Jan Kjaersgaard talks CoE and consolidation

EUROPE: Windpower TV spoke to Siemens EMEA CEO Jan Kjaersgaard at EWEA 2013 about the struggle to reduce the cost of energy and consolidation in the wind industry.

Asked about offshore cost of energy, Kjaersgaard said there was "no silver bullet" to reduce this. Instead, the solution lies in smaller initiatives such as working on infrastructure and foundations as well as the turbines themselves.

Unsurpringly, Kjaersgaard said consolidation was good for the industry and that smaller players would find it harder to compete. He cited his own personal experience at Bonus Energy, which was acquired by Siemens in 2005.
