Executive Leaving British Wind Energy Association

The UK’s biggest renewable trade association is looking for a new Chief Executive. After nearly six years as Chief Executive of the British Wind Energy Association (BWEA), Nick Goodall will be leaving the organization.

London, England – November 12, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] “It’s time to move on – I’ve helped to bring BWEA to a very good point in its development and I’m looking forward to my next challenge” said Goodall. “Nick was brought in to put BWEA on a sound financial and organizational footing, take on opponents to wind energy and to encourage Government to support the industry in bringing clean, green power to the UK,” said David Still, BWEA chairman. “We’ve now got an income of over £600,000, a corporate membership of 230 and Board of Directors made up of senior industry figures. Thousands of megawatts, both onshore and offshore are now certain to be installed over the coming years.” Goodall will be leaving in the early part of 2003 and will be staying with the association in the meantime to assist the board in making the transition. “Nick’s energetic enthusiasm has contributed greatly to the successful position of the wind industry in today’s electricity market,” said Alan Moore, managing director of National Wind Power. “He and his wit will be a hard act to follow.” The BWEA board is now welcoming informal approaches from people interested in the position of Chief Executive. A formal process will be announced in due course. Interested parties should contact [email protected]
