Germany-based EnBW, an offshore wind energy developer in Europe, has hired Bill White to serve as managing director of the company’s North American operations.
Most recently, White served as senior director of offshore wind development at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, where he led Massachusetts’ efforts on the identification of offshore wind areas.
Additionally, White led the construction of the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal, the first U.S. facility designed for the staging, assembly and deployment of offshore wind projects, says EnBW.
Previously, he served as a special assistant to the president in the Clinton administration and worked at the U.S. Department of State. He also served as assistant secretary at the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
“For over a decade, Bill White has been among the most significant and impactful leaders in the advancement of offshore wind in the United States,” says Holger Grubel, EnBW’s head of portfolio development for offshore wind. “We are delighted that Bill is joining our EnBW team to lead our efforts in North America.”
“I’m honored to join EnBW’s talented team that built the first commercial offshore wind project in Germany and now has approximately 2 GW of offshore wind projects constructed, under construction or contracted,” says White.
