Guest Panellist Bio:

My background is as an R&D chemist and I specialise in developing coatings for Wind turbine blades.  I started working at AkzoNobel nine years ago as a graduate R&D chemist before progressing into a Section Leader role. Within my role I am responsible for developing the next generation of coatings for wind turbine blades as well as supporting production of the coatings in the factory. My aim is to develop coatings which can protect the wind blade from erosion which decreases the blades efficiency to generate energy, an effective coating solution will enable the blade to generate more energy for longer.
