As 2016 drew to a close, we thought it might be a good idea to look back and see what was read and viewed the most in what was a momentous year for offshore wind.
As per our tradition, at the end of each year we compile lists containing the most popular content in a number of categories, from news items, to our interviews, photos, and more.
This year, we kick off our annual tradition with the most popular videos of 2016.
