Biography

I have more than 28 years of experience in the wind energy sector, mainly focused in research activities.
In 1989 along with other aeronautical engineers created a company for the development of wind energy (GEDEON S. Coop.), that developed the first Spanish wind turbine connected to the grid (GDN-310).
In 1986 I was contracted for CIEMAT (the largest Spanish Public Research Agency for excellence in energy and environment) to create the Wind Energy Division inside the IER (Institute for Renewable Energies). I was the director of the Wind Energy Division of the IER-CIEMAT from 1985 until 1990.
I began in 1987 to participate in international organizations, being the first Spanish member of the "Large Scale WECS" implement agreement of the International Energy Agency. At the present time I’m the President of the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE) and the Operator Agent of the Task 11 “Base Technology Information Exchange” of the Wind implement agreement of the International Energy Agency (IEAWind R&D).
I have participated as professor in more than 70 courses in the wind energy sector.
