Chairman of the British Wind Energy Association, David Still, has been seconded to the Department of Trade and Industry for two years to help deliver the government's targets for renewable energy. Still, the former head of AMEC's wind business, will be responsible for promoting communication between stakeholders, government and major renewable players, raising renewable energy's profile, advising on modifications needed to the electricity network and helping develop an export strategy for renewables manufacturing in the UK. "David's first hand experience of promoting wind technology and taking forward major projects will be extremely valuable," says energy minister Brian Wilson. "Although his background is mainly in wind power, many of the issues affecting other renewables technologies are similar and I am looking for a wide-ranging engagement with the whole industry," he adds.
