In this report, our third annual look at the year ahead in wind, we have interviews with industry leaders including US developer Sandy Reisky, founder and chairman of Apex Clean Energy; and Markus Lesser, who took over as chief executive of German developer PNE Wind last April to guide the firm out of tough times. Both have been doing big deals in key markets. Both are worthy of your attention.
We also give our insight on what the rise of far-right parties means for the future of the wind sector in Europe; our take on the timing and impact of interest rate rises; and our Italian banking specialist Ilaria Valtimora reports from her home country on what its looming banking crisis means for the European financial system.
Last but not least, we have a comment piece from Sacha Kamp, head of renewable energy for the EMEA region at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, who focuses on the prospects for project finance in the offshore sector in 2017.
