Wind To Provide 20% of Power

Wind To Provide 20% of Power

Wind power is predicted to be the way of the future, and has been for quite some time. Slowly, wind power has been accepted into the life of many people living in this global village, and there’s not many people standing in the way of this clean, renewable and healthy energy source. With fossil fuels running, and having proved extremely poisonous to the both the earth and humanity, many government and private companies are changing their ways and habits. So much so, that it is a possibility, according to Greenpeace, that wind energy may contribute as high as 12% to the energy needs of the world by 2020. By 2030, it is predicted that this will be raised to 20%. This is a huge win for renewable energy companies, and shows the thinking and awareness about the dire need to remove our reliance on fossil fuels.

This news is extremely good for just about everyone, as the problems caused by our current carbon usage worsen; we need to cease using the oils and coals we are now. Production of wind turbines is growing, and the pace at which they are being able to built shows the strength and growth in that industry.

Currently, production of wind turbines stands at a wind turbine being made every 30 minutes by 600,000 employees worldwide. By 2030, millions of jobs may have been created in the wind and renewable energy industry, with a turnout of one wind turbine every seven minutes. The country leading the way in this industry is China, which currently makes a third of the wind turbines for the global market.

Amazingly, it’s the developing nations, which are standing up and getting ahead start with wind power and renewable energy, as they look towards industries of growth and a high return for their money. Developing nations see that renewable resources and energy will help to raise employment levels, make energy more affordable for the population, and also help the government and businesses to save money. It is also predicted that by 2030 around half the wind power plants will be in developing nations.
