WindEurope’s Board of Directors has elected Gunnar Groebler – Senior Vice President, Business Area Wind at Vattenfall – as the association’s new Chair. The Board made up of corporate members, national associations and other organizations appointed Groebler for an 18-month term.

Tony Adam from Nordex will become the association’s new Vice Chair.

Gunnar Groebler said that it is an honor for him to have been elected as WindEurope’s new Chair.

“We’re at an exciting time for wind energy. The technology continues to evolve and with it, costs are coming down. Wind is an increasingly affordable source of power for people and businesses. The next challenge that we face as an industry is to continue ramping up the scale as Europe phases out fossil fuels and electrifies its economy. Wind energy is ideally poised to become Europe’s future electricity producer of choice,” Groebler said.

Groebler, a mechanical engineer by background, has been with Vattenfall in various capacities since 1999.
Now Senior Vice President, Business Area Wind, Groebler heads up Vattenfall’s wind and solar energy as well as battery operations.

Groebler succeeds Ivor Catto, CEO of RES, as WindEurope Chair.

“Having one of the world’s biggest renewable energy companies at the helm of WindEurope, with its expertise in wind will certainly be a great asset to us,” WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson said.
