In order to reverse the effects of climate change, it is not enough to absorb the CO2 that is being released into the atmosphere; we must improve the efficiency of our energy system as well. This two-pronged approach is widely regarded as the best strategy to fight climate change, hence why we choose to support the growth of wind farms in developing countries.
Wind-generated energy is one of the most sustainable energy sources available.
It is 75 times more sustainable than coal, 70 times more so than oil, and 45 times more sustainable than natural gas.
The average energy consumption of a European citizen is 7 mWh per year.
If generated by fossils this consumption will produce 3500kg of CO2; alternatively, if generated by wind it will only produce 84.
