GWEC’s Ben Backwell on the highlights of the WindEnergy Hamburg conference

Ben Backwell, CEO of the Global Wind Energy Council, discusses the key themes to emerge from WindEnergy Hamburg.

In the fifth episode of the Wind Power podcast, Ian Griggs, deputy editor of Windpower Monthly, had a wide-ranging conversation with Backwell which included how the wind industry should respond to the ongoing energy crisis.Also up for discussion was the subject of how to attract and retain the expanded – and skilled - workforce the industry desperately needs in order to achieve ambitious deployment targets as well as whether there are sunnier times ahead for struggling turbine manufacturers.

In the closing moments of the episode, Backwell also laid out a controversial view of which country currently has the most favourable policy backdrop for the wind industry.
