Interview with Katherine Dykes, Section Head at the Department of Wind Energy of the DTU.Katherine Dykes has been working in wind for 15 years. She came to Europe last year to join the DTU (Technical University of Denmark) Wind Energy Department and be at the heart of the wind industry following 9 years at NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) in the United States.
It took us decades to get to 100GW - now it is about how many terawatts we need for wind to make up as much as half of the world’s electricity consumption.
To become the world’s foundational energy source, we have to make wind energy even more valuable for electricity systems – making it more predictable, controllable, and available.
