After, more than two years of struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, the world now faces an unparalleled economic and ecological challenge. The speed with which the world recovers will be determined by our collective decisions in the months ahead. We have to create jobs and accelerate our economies.
Accelerated growth would mean an increased demand for power without compromising on sustainability. Wind Energy as a power source cannot be overlooked. Harvesting Wind energy will contribute to the green recovery by providing jobs, clean and affordable electricity, and energy security and allowing governments to update vital infrastructure for a long-term future.
7 important facts about Harvesting Wind Energy
4. Wind being a renewable resource that will not be exhausted via use, it has a much lower environmental and climate impact than burning fossil fuels.
5. Once installed, wind turbines have a low operating cost, as wind is for free.
7. Wind energy is one of the world’s fastest growing energy sources.
What places are good for harvesting Wind Energy?
According to key international energy institutes IRENA and the IEA our present growth rates are lagging behind a net zero trajectory, and we will only be able to generate 43% of the required wind capacity by 2050. To achieve our targets the annual wind energy installations must multiply three times worldwide over the next decade to get back on track.
On #WorldWindEnergyDay, let all nations come together for a concerted effort to quickly innovate and implement sustainable energy resources like wind and solar power to support our growth without compromising on the future of our earth.
