Jim Platts will introduce his recent practical experiences in wind farm energy development in China:

“It’s hard starting a company in the UK. All those meetings with hard nosed venture capitalists talking through the business plan. It’s not like that in China. Nothing of what we are doing in China, in our work developing the wind energy industry, fits the models we teach here. But it fits very well with what would have been familiar to many in Victorian England, of people being very far sighted, courageous and trusting and willing to make big commitments. We do happen to be developing the best wind energy technology in the world, so I will briefly tell the technical story of what we are doing. But mostly I will tell the human story of how it is happening.”
