Kristian Ruby brings to the association a wealth of experience in political communication and public affairs. He is currently part of the Executive Management team at WindEurope, where he serves as Chief Policy Officer in charge of developing and implementing the political strategy of the association.

Prior to WindEurope, Mr Ruby worked as assistant to the former European Commissioner for Climate Action, Connie Hedegaard and also, for a number of years, as a public servant in the Danish Ministries of Climate and Energy as well as Environment. In addition, Mr Ruby has considerable experience in communications and media relations.

“I am glad to be joining such a respected association at a time where the industry is going through a major transformation. As the world forges ahead on sustainable development policies and global climate action, the importance of the electricity industry will only increase. The power sector is the lynchpin of the energy transition. And with electrification we have a unique opportunity to stimulate economic growth and provide benefits for society and the environment at the same time,” said Ruby.
