As an indicator of the trends in wind energy development, Windpower Monthly's annual index, which makes up this special issue, contains food for thought. Our categorisation of the past year's news reveals that the "Company News" and "Technology Development" sections are thinner in this index than in the last. This could well suggest that the industry is not doing all it should to inform the world about its considerable business and technical progress -- despite the acknowledged importance of public relations for wind. A steady flow of information about breakthroughs achieved and mileposts passed is a good way of generating public interest and confidence.
