Fast Company reported today that by the year 2030, wind could be powering 20% of the world’s need with China in the lead. With Google offering up $200 million in support for a large wind farm off the East Coast that will be up and running by 2016.
New technologies in wind energy are expected to begin producing upwards of 12.3& of global energy needs over the new several years leading to around 21.8% by 2030. Use of wind power would lead to potentially 34 billion tons less carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere.
China is expected to take the top spot in wind energy in 2010. If China can benefit from this free energy, so can you!
