Wind energy


Wind energy production constitutes over 2.5% of total worldwide electricity usage and is growing rapidly at more than 25% per annum. A key advantage of wind power is that it is a renewable source of power with close to zero emissions and limited impact on the environment.

Renewable energy

Renewable energy is key to the transition to a low-carbon sustainable energy system. Renewable sources of energy have been the driver of much of the growth in the global clean energy sector for the past 25 years, and today around 19% of the world’s energy consumption comes from renewables.
