Wind power could provide nearly 20 percent of power globally by 2030, report says

Wind power could be a global workhorse, providing up to 18.8 percent of global electricity needs by 2030, and even more beyond that, if it’s aggressively pursued, a new report concludes.

Under an “advanced scenario” modeled by the report, wind power would be green-lighted by governments around the world, and reach close to 2,000 Gigawatts of capacity by 2030.

At that level, it would be saving the planet 3 billion tons of CO2 emissions annually, according to the report, Global Wind Energy Outlook, a joint effort by Greenpeace and the Global Wind Energy Council.
