World-Gen’s 25th Anniversary cover was designed as a collection of its headlines spanning the
decades. World-Gen was launched by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich in 1988 and acquired by the Flanagan
Group in a leveraged buyout from GE Capital in 1991.
The deregulation of electricity spawned a number of new opportunities turning IPP’s into utilities and
utilities into IPP’s. World-Gen editors have been reporting on the transition by covering all power
generation – fossil, nuclear, renewables, transmission, distribution technologies, both at home and abroad.
Our reporting has resulted in over twenty exclusive assignments around the world. Scottish Development
International invited World-Gen to report on the Scottish government’s commitment to develop 100
percent of its electricity from renewables by 2020. Look for coverage in the May/June issue and online.
We are pleased and proud to present our 25th Anniversary Issue written by the Classes of 2000
