TIME TO TAKE STOCK

Wind Power Monthly's editor takes stock of the status of wind power in 1995 as reflected in the magazine's editorial column over the year. Topics as wide ranging as the cyclical swings of the wind business, the dangers of selling wind power too cheaply, the shame of unethical behaviour, the might of the consumer, European budget fiddles, and the frightening short-sightedness of the power sector establishment have all been discussed. The political climate for wind has warmed and it is on agendas around the world. Consumers have a better understanding of the role renewable energy can play and most are now willing to pay more for clean power. This is having its effect on national governments and legislation to help wind into the market is becoming the norm rather than the exception. The battle is far from won, though. The wind industry is new and therefore vulnerable.
