Dr. Tacke was elected by EWEA’s Board of Directors, which comprises corporate members, national associations and other organisations.
Dr. Tacke said one of the first major challenges will be securing 30% renewables target in the 2030 climate and energy framework to be agreed by heads of state and government. “This will give the wind energy industry a springboard for the post-2020 environment,” said Dr. Tacke. He will succeed current EWEA President Dr. Andrew Garrad, who has served in the post in 2013 and 2014.
