Among the 30 most influential people in the wind industry worldwide is Andrew Garrad, Non-Executive Chairman of GL Garrad Hassan.
Windpower Monthly Magazine used "a variety of methods to compile the list of top 30 leaders, starting with canvassing opinion on worthy entrants from market players, including wind industry organisations and the magazine's key correspondents. A readers' poll contributed to the final ranking in conjunction with an editorial judgement. Categories had been defined in which each entrant operates, from manufacturer and technology to political and finance to developer." Source: Windpower Monthly
