Wind could deliver up to 30 percent of global power needs by 2050

Clean Energy Review

By the year 2030, wind power could supply as much as 19 percent of global electricity needs, creating more than two million new jobs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than three billion tonnes per year. Further, given policy support, spinners could be providing up to 30 percent of the global electricity supply by 2050. Those are the key findings of this year’s Global Wind Energy Outlook, published jointly last week by the Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International. The research presents three visions of the future of the global wind-energy industry and outlines how the sector might deliver electrons, reduce emissions, save money, and add jobs and investment.
