Daniel Kulin: Svensk vindenergi

Daniel Kulin is a strategic analyst at the interest organization Svensk vindenergi and has previously worked with market analyzes and strategies for several of the energy transition’s relevant techniques. At the Swedish Energy Agency, he worked in 2012-2018 with market descriptions for solar cells, batteries and wind power. Between 2018 and 2020, he worked with forecasts and policy issues for electric cars and technology for smart grids at Power Circle.

Back in the wind power industry, he notes how certain issues come up again and how wind power’s market development paves the way for solar energy and fast charging of electric vehicles both in terms of financing models with SPVs and long secure contracts, experience of environmental testing and through developed processes for connecting large parks. to regional networks. The energy conversion technologies are all parts of a new ecosystem and force a new market logic regarding both electricity production, electricity distribution, electricity use, regulation and taxation.
