Wind power enables electricity to be produced in an environmentally friendly way, with no chemical or radioactive emissions, while the ground on which turbines are positioned can still be used for agricultural purposes.
Wind energy is a major source of renewable energy in the EU. In 2012, installed wind power capacity in the European Union totalled 105,000MW.
A European Environment Agency report, Europe's Onshore and Offshore Wind Energy Potential confirms wind power’s potential in 2020 as three times greater than Europe’s expected electricity demand, rising to a factor of seven by 2030.
In addition, Comsar is investigating the further potential of actual generation, and investing in developing advanced storage technology and increased grid flexibility.
