Julian Brown Q&A @Rechargenews

Julian Brown – Areva Wind’s UK country manager and chairman of the offshore network Norstec – will be Recharge’s guest for a special Twitter-based Q&A session on Wednesday, 11 September. 

Starting at 1000 BST, the event will give Recharge’s almost 10,000-strong Twitter followers at @Rechargenews the chance to question Brown, who is uniquely placed to offer insights into the offshore wind industry and UK renewables policy.

As head of France’s Areva Wind in the UK, he is leading a major European turbine manufacturer’s strategy in the world’s biggest offshore wind market.

And in his role as chairman of Norstec, Brown leads the group specifically charged by UK Prime Minister David Cameron with turning the North Sea into a global centre for the offshore wind sector.

Fellow Norstec members include a number of major developers such as Norway’s Statkraft and Statoil, Scotland’s SSE, and Sweden’s Vattenfall, and manufacturers such as Siemens and Gamesa, as well as other key stakeholders such as The Crown Estate.
