Dr. David Connolly, CEO, IWEA

“I am passionate about the wind industry in Ireland and so taking up the role of CEO of the Irish Wind Energy Association is a real honour and opportunity. And I am ambitious for its future – I believe we can do more with this home grown resource. I’ve worked in the industry in other countries and I’ve seen how it can flourish with the right support. We have no shortage of talent in Ireland, no shortage of willing workers, no shortage of demand for green energy and thankfully no shortage of wind. My challenge and opportunity is to build on this strong base to ensure wind and renewable energy continues to play a pivotal role. And that the benefits of this are felt by all, communities close to wind farms and all Irish energy consumers in their bills.”
