José has 10+ years experience in the wind energy industry from both academic and corporate environments. His career has revolved around optimization – first of wind turbine rotors and now of techno-economic models of renewable power systems. José is generally very entrepreneurial and enthusiastic. In his daily work he combines everything from developing models to assess the profitability of future power-to-x plants, all the way to management of technology roadmap programs.

Motivation

José believes that a good conversation can go a long way in framing one’s attitude towards current and future challenges. He sees this as an opportunity not only to share his experience but also to learn from the mentee’s own experiences. He prefers to help someone who is driven by “how fun a job can be” and believes that there is no right way to build a career.
