We’re looking ahead to 2019 and what is set to be a bumper year of news, launches and growth for the wind energy sector.
As we’re looking ahead to 2019 we thought we highlight some of the stories cropping up on a daily basis and some of the new products we’re bringing to market in the coming weeks. To say we’re looking forward to the year ahead is an understatement, we anticipate lots of hard work, big growth and maybe the odd mad challenge (Director Ben cycled from Canada to Mexico last year!).
