Wind energy: helping to build European energy independence
European energy imports are predicted to rise from 50% today to 70% by 2030. Wind energy is one of Europe’s largest indigenous energy resources and it can help to build European energy independence. "Wind power has no resource constraints; the fuel is free, endless. Wind power stations can be constructed and can deliver power far quicker than other conventional sources, with no import dependence and no fuel price risk. In terms of carbon delivery, wind energy is outperforming many other proposed solutions", said Corin Millais, EWEA CEO.
EWEA is the voice of the wind industry, actively promoting wind power in Europe and worldwide. It has over 600 members, which are active in over 50 countries, making EWEA the world's largest and most powerful wind energy network.
