Energy for Humanity is a global NGO with an ambitious agenda to broaden the climate and energy debate to include all low carbon technologies in our path to deep decarbonisation. We focus on two great challenges: firstly dramatically reducing carbon emissions; secondly meeting rising global energy demand, especially for billions of people who lack access to electricity. Both have one thing in common: the energy we use to power our world.
The energy in the wind can be harnessed to produce electricity using wind turbines. Find out how much wind is powering our world. Within the ‘new renewables’ group (excluding hydro and biomass), wind power has the largest share in electricity generation.
