Gabriel Alonso was CEO of the fourth-largest wind energy operator, EDP Renewables North America, for nine years, and a past chair of the American Wind Energy Association board. Here he argues for CEOs allocating enough in their 2019 budgets to keep the research going.
Alonso recently became executive chairman of ConnectGEN LLC, and executive in residence at Quantum Energy Partners, a leading provider of private equity capital to the global energy industry.
