JUAN DE DIOS BORNAY, NEW PRESIDENT OF APPA MINIEÓLICA.
Renewables in the mini-windpower sector, excellent news for the company. The new president of APPA Minieólica holds an MBA in Senior Management from the Fundesem Business School and has pursued his entire professional career in the firm founded 45 years ago by his father, Juan Bornay.
In this new stage Juan de Dios Bornay is faced with the challenge of helping to consolidate in Spain a technology that, because of the administrative barriers of our country, has had to find its development in international markets.
For the president of APPA Minieólica, “mini-windpower technology is being developed throughout the world, and paradoxically, a sector that has leading companies on the international level suffers locally from the lack of adequate regulation.” Bornay is convinced of the “important role of mini-windpower in the development of self-consumption and the generation of energy distributed in Spain.”
The new president of APPA Minieólica is also a member of the board of directors of AVAESEN and forms part of its working group on self-consumption. Bornay Aerogeneradores also belongs to Secartys – Solarty, and Juan de Dios Bornay is part of the working group on self- consumption. Furthermore, the firm is associated with ASENER, Alliance for Rural Electrification, APEME and FER (Foundation for Renewable Energies).
