After he joins on 13 August, he is likely to conduct a review of the comms output and may recruit new staff to strengthen the body’s voice as climate change becomes an increasingly urgent issue.

He has previously been director of public affairs at the British Retail Consortium and head of public affairs at Homeless Link.

Anglin replaces head of comms Alison Hill, who leaves after eight years to join environment, food chain and rural affairs specialist Mistral PR. She joins in the new role of head of environment, in charge of the natural environment department. She will look to grow the renewable energies side of the business and reports to director Victoria Cross. Prior to BWEA, Hill worked at the BBC as a science reporter.

The BWEA is the trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables industries. It was formed in 1978 and has more than 310 corporate members.

Last year, BWEA used Amazon PR to launch a pair of reports into onshore and offshore wind generation, and to promote the findings of its fifth annual conference.

According to the BWEA, wind has been the fastest-growing renewable energy source for the past seven years, and this trend is expected to continue with falling costs of wind energy and the urgent need to tackle CO2 emissions.
