Women in wind power

Alicia Green (2014)

Alicia left Headington in 2014 and went on to study Geography at Durham. After graduating, she worked at RenewableUK in several roles. She now works for Offshore Industry Council, in partnership with RenewableUK, as Delivery Coordinator.

Charlie Reed (Headington’s Environment prefect), Rose Crawford and Kate Chan (STEM prefects) were very interested to learn more about Alicia's work in renewable energy and interviewed her about the importance of offshore wind, getting more women involved in renewable energy and the benefits of introducing STEM subjects to girls at a young age.

Watch the interview with Alicia, Rose and Kate below.

Since filming this interview, the UK Government has increased their offshore wind target to 50GW by 2030 including 5GW of floating wind. Commenting on this announcement, Alicia said – “A further ramp up of offshore wind ambition is great news for the UK’s world leading industry. By 2030 every UK home will be powered by offshore wind, which is a significant step in the right direction for a low carbon UK economy.
