Making the best of both worlds -- As the wind industry transforms itself from its books, beards and lentil soup background there are issues that need careful consideration. MegaCorp does not have all
As the industry transforms itself from its books, beards and lentil soup beginnings, there are issues that need careful consideration. It was inspired and innovative people who grew the industry, not accountants. The entry of mega-corporations now brings threats as well as promises. Obsessive demand for return on capital and dividends to far off shareholders may destroy goodwill to the entire concept of wind power generation. On the other hand, new entrants to the sector are bringing precisely what the wind industry needs: large pools of capital, quality standards, professional people and political clout.
