Wind Energy Roundup

A recent study from the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) points out the following: “In 2010 the wind energy sector – both directly and indirectly – contributed €32.43 billion (bn) to the EU’s GDP, 0.26% of the EU’s total GDP for that year. The contribution of the wind energy sector is higher than the contribution of the footwear industry (0.21%)…. In 2010 the increase in the wind industry’s contribution to GDP, at 4.1%, was twice as high as the growth of GDP itself. Between 2007 and 2010 the wind energy sector increased its contribution to GDP by 33%. The wind industry is growing faster than the EU’s economy as a whole and this will remain the case over the next two decades.”
