ADVISORY BOARD
PennWell wishes to thank the individual members of the Advisory Board for the generous donation of their time and expertise.
John Epps – An Appreciation
It was with much sadness that we learned of the passing of John Epps in late December. John brought his great knowledge of the electricity industry, gained over a long and distinguished career, to the benefit of the POWER-GEN & Renewable Energy World Europe Advisory Board and his enthusiasm and desire to inspire others will be long remembered.
