See below for video of Chris Brown of Vestas, keynoting the opening session on day two of WINDPOWER 2017, concluding today in Anaheim, CA. According to Brown, who is completing his tenure as Chair of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the next five years will be the "best five years of your life" for the wind power industry. Brown adds: "So along with the success that we've been having, if you've become afraid, then I say good! Welcome to life as an energy industry disruptor." And Brown notes that "critics criticize...but ask yourself, why do those critics pay attention to us? Because we're a threat, because we're winning." A few more quotes from Brown's excellent speech:

Today, HubSpot is launching its annual “State of Inbound” report. Last year’s report contained the startling conclusion that, “In five years, marketing and sales as you know it will no longer exist.” Instead, HubSpot noted that where people consume information is changing rapidly, with 2 out of 3 adults using social media to keep up with the news, Facebook users watching 8 billion videos every day, and with technology becoming a lot more mobile – “and is changing at a pace more rapid than anything we’ve seen before.” Given all these changes, HubSpot concluded that marketers can’t keep talking to consumers like they haven’t changed. This means that “inbound” marketing – pulling in customers via social media marketing, Search Engine Optimization and content marketing - needs to change as well.
In energy markets across the country, from Texas to California to New Jersey and states like Iowa in between – electricity generated from renewables is rapidly becoming cheaper than fossil fuel generation. The increasing cost advantage of renewable energy has become a talking point for clean energy and climate change advocates. It’s also become a selling point for businesses looking to identify markets where its easiest and most beneficial to heavily invest in renewables.

When author and public speaker Brene’ Brown talked about “the power of vulnerability” at TEDx Houston in 2010, she was speaking as a researcher, a professor at the University of Houston and a #1 New York Times best-selling author. Brown’s credibility got her onstage, but credibility alone is not what got her to the top-10 most-viewed TED talks in the world. That accomplishment was likely the result of Brown taking her own advice.
