Wind power is clean
Wind power produces energy, pure and simple. No CO2, no other greenhouse gasses, no hazardous waste left behind as a poisonous legacy for future generations. And, unlike coal and nuclear plants, it doesn’t consume huge amounts of water – which is itself becoming a scarce resource.
Clean energy efficiency
As an example, one V126-3.3 MW wind turbine in a low wind will generate 240,000 MWh during its 20 years of operation – thus sparing the environment the impact of a net volume of approx 230,000 tons of CO2, as compared to the figures for energy generated by a coal-fired power station.
Leading the world in sustainable energy
At Vestas, we already lead the world in turning wind power into clean, sustainable electricity. But we also want to lead by example. So our goal is that by 2020, 60 per cent of our own internal energy needs will be met by clean electricity.
