"The global windpower industry is now coming of age. It’s proved its worth and shown the world the capability to provide a viable, sustainable source of energy.
There are still hurdles to face, we are after all, living through uncertain times, but that makes this a good time to embrace the success, build on best practice, acknowledge the challenges and establish best practice.
The Windpower Monthly Awards 2018 will be peer reviewed and judged by industry specialists, establishing essential standards and benchmarks for excellence. They offer a new platform for the industry to support the community and embrace all that is good in windpower.
We will showcase the people and companies that have made a real difference, taking the industry from enthusiastic start ups though to maturity.
The four strands of the Windpower Monthly Awards are designed to reflect the key operations of the world’s windpower community: the support crews, the technical and kit partners and those working to support the environmental elements.
I want to ensure these awards are structured to perfectly suit the windpower sector. There may be additional areas you feel should be assessed and rewarded, I’m open to comments (contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org).
Windpower Monthly was there at the beginning 35 years ago and is committed to supporting this vital sector as it develops and grows.
Let’s highlight and reward the hard work, celebrate past achievements and move towards the future with purpose via the Windpower Monthly Awards 2018".
