Following from Global Wind Day, organised by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), Windpower Monthly asks if there is more the industry could be doing to promote the sector to the wider public.
We spoke to Greenpeace chief scientist Dr Doug Parr, Vestas chief marketing officer Morten Albaek and Richard Bowen, consultant at Pendragon PR.
