Speaking at the session were MHI chief strategy officer Masato Yamada, Siemens Wind Power CEO Michael Hannibal and Dong Energy senior vice president Claus Christensen.

They discussed how the industry can move towards offering a more united voice in order to progress as a whole.

Hannibal said: "It is important that we remain focused on cost and improvements. Many of us have done that on an individual basis, but this paper is good because it is now starting to unite all the initiatives in one direction so that, with one voice, we can talk to policy makers and regulatory regimes. It's more united rather than factions talking."

The panelists talk about how it is possible to maintain competitive advantage while also working together to improve cooperation for the benefit of the industry as a whole.
