WindEurope on whether the EU's 480GW wind target is realistic or an impossible dream

WindEurope's CEO Giles Dickson joins us to discuss whether we can hit the EU's ambitious wind target

We are at a pivotal moment for European wind power. The climate crisis and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have left no one in any doubt about the need to roll out renewable energy as fast as possible.

The EU wants to end Russian energy imports by 2030 and expand wind energy from 190GW today to 480GW by 2030. But is it a realistic goal, given the challenges facing the wind industry? 

Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope, firmly believes it is. In our first ever Wind Power podcast he talks to Claire Warren, Editor of Windpower Monthly, about what it will take for the industry to deliver.
