Wind Watch is published every Monday and Friday.
In the meantime, have you downloaded our latest Finance Quarterly report, published in association with leading energy advisor DNV GL? If you haven't, get on with it!
In this series of reports, published shortly after the end of each calendar quarter, we give readers a quick and focused rundown of the wind market. This includes a mix of interviews, economic analysis and information on recent deals.
In this second edition, we have tackled two angles on Spain's growth in the wind sector.
We have an interview with LauraBeane, CEO of Avangrid Renewables, which is the US arm of Spanish utility Iberdrola;
and we have also looked at Spain in our analysis piece on the country's recent renewable energy auctions, and whether they
will help it to rebuild confidence with investors.
The report also includes insights from our sponsor DNV GLinto growth of the floating wind sector; and we have interviewed Alla Weinstein, founder of developer Trident Winds and formerly of floating foundations firm Principle Power, for our member Q&A.
Finally, the report brings you useful information on project M&A, corporate M&A and power purchase agreements completed in wind between July and September; and the latest developments on a host of large offshore wind projects in Europe, Asia, North America and beyond. Don't miss out!
Four Republican congressmen have called for a halt to US offshore wind projects because of unsubstantiated claims blaming the industry for whale deaths. But this obvious misinformation can still be a threat for the growth of the industry.
