Do Wind Energy Promotes Climate protection?

The Earth’s climate is constantly changing due to natural meteorological factors. But the speed at which this has happened in recent years has increased unnaturally. The drought in many regions of Europe in the summer of 2022 is just another example. Humanity has contributed to accelerated global warming through the depletion of the Earth’s resources, ongoing deforestation, and, above all, the emission of greenhouse gases – with dramatic consequences.

Alongside energy-saving measures, renewable energies are the most important means of combating climate change: in 2021 alone, 221 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions were saved through the use of renewable energies. Wind energy prevented around 87 million
tonnes of CO2 equivalents in 2021.

But there is still a long way to go before the necessary climate protection targets are achieved. Among other things, faster permitting and more designated land are needed to close the gap.
