Ride Like the Wind - Christopher Cross (1980)

Greetings for a happy and prosperous 2010 from the Philippines where I am finishing up my holidays.

One of my trip's highlights has been to visit the Bangui Bay 15-tower wind farm in the Ilocos Norte Province near the northern tip of Luzon (yes, that's me up close and personal with the ginormous turbines).

It is the first wind power project in the Philippines and the largest energy-generating set in Southeast Asia. The turbines catch breezes blowing in from the South China Sea and convert it into a total of 24.75 megawatts of energy. To learn more about this project, read on.

It was an apt encounter to start the year with given the exciting directions we are taking at The Oxford Princeton Programme.

We shall be offering content that address the growing green and reneawables sectors such as in Energy Project Finance - A Practical Approach for Non-Finance Managers and a soon to be released web-based course (more details come February).

We'll indeed be riding like the wind in 2010 and we do hope you will join us as we continue to offer the most comprehensive menu of training titles available to professionals dedicated to the business of energy.

Stay tuned.
