About this report
Now in its fifth year, the Top 100 Power People is our annual look at the most influential individuals in wind - and what a year it's been!
The crashing stock market in China; the UK's vote to leave the European Union; and a bitterly-contested US presidential election. These are just some of the major political and macroeconomic stories that have rocked the business world this year.
And yet, the wind sector has kept moving forward. The five-year extension of the production tax credit in the US has given firms in that key market the confidence to invest while, in Europe, the move towards competitive auctions has led to a short-term boom in Germany. And, despite the political upheaval in the UK, the prospects for the world's leading offshore market are strong too.
The continued success of the sector in Europe, North America, Asia and beyond is testament to the people that work within it. In this special report, our fifth-annual Top 100 Power People, we will look at the 100 that we see as most influential.
On top of that, the report contains interviews with two industry big-hitters: Samuel Leupold, head of wind at Dong Energy, who has played a key role in helping drive down the cost of offshore wind; and Ian Mays, the former chief executive at RES Group and a bona fide wind industry star who, despite his retirement last month, is passionate about where the sector goes next - and has shared these views with Tamarindo.
