Wind power’s growth is blowing Europe toward green goals

September 10th, 2010

Europe is installing more wind power capacity than any other form of energy, and wind is leading the way to making the continent’s electricity generation 100% renewable by 2050

Today, only five percent of Europe’s electricity comes from wind. But that will not be the case for long. For the past two years, 40 percent of all new electricity generating capacity in Europe came from wind turbines. From Spain to Sweden, so many new turbines are being erected that Europe is on target to produce 15 percent of its electricity from wind by 2020. By 2050, half of Europe’s electricity is expected to come from wind.
