From the beginnings of commercial wind power in the mid-1980s to a vision of the world's electricity supply in 2020, this publication is a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Windpower Monthly's launch. It sweeps readers up in the saga of an idea whose time has come, told by the people who are playing significant parts in making it happen.

It is a tale of dogged commitment to scaling unassailable barriers; of technology development at breathtaking speed; of battles fought against ignorance in the way of progress; and of an industry that promises so much to so many. Never ending flows of electricity. More jobs than fossil fuel or nuclear generation, though wind power costs less long term. Secure, domestic supplies of energy for a safer world. The replacement of technologies that have led us into environmental disaster.

This is just the beginning, the first quarter century. So much more is to come. Share our vision and that of our guest writers - financial experts, energy economists, businessmen, designers, engineers, scientists, policy gurus and journalists - in the following pages. They pass on a wisdom born of experience. Not only will you find it an enlightening read, but an entertaining one, too.

- This 25th special issue is edited by Nancy Graham Holm, a former environmental reporter for KTVU-TV, editorial director for CBS affiliate KPIX in San Francisco, and head of department for TV at The Danish School of Journalism.
