In conversation with GE Vernova's onshore wind chief Vic Abate

Vic Abate, chief executive of GE Vernova’s onshore wind division as well as GE's chief technology officer, is one of the most senior people working in the wind industry today

A former CEO of GE’s renewable energy division from 2005 to 2013, Abate has been with the company for more than 20 years and he can trace a line in his career from when wind power was in its infancy through to today’s global energy transition.

In the fourteenth episode of the Wind Power podcast – recorded at the recent WindEurope conference in Copenhagen – Ian Griggs, deputy editor of Windpower Monthly, caught up with Abate to ask him how President Biden’s landmark Inflation Reduction Act will affect the fortunes of GE in the coming decade, how the legislation compares with Europe’s proposals and why the company is cutting the number of turbine variants it offers.
