My guest this episode is Alejandro De Hoz, Vice President for Offshore Wind at Avangrid Renewables. We begin with Alejandro’s background and then look at Avangrid Renewables, and its parent company Iberdrola, one of the world’s largest electric power companies. We review Avangrid Renewables’ US offshore wind portfolio including Vineyard Wind, soon to be the first utility-scale offshore wind development in federal waters. Alejandro shares some of his perspective on the industry, comparing the European experience with the US experience and touching on port infrastructure, supply chain development and the workforce, and we close with Avangrid Renewable’s future plans.
