Earth’s wind resources could meet global energy demands, @carnegiescience study says #WindEnergy

10 Sep 2012: Wind Resources Could Meet Global Energy Demands, Study Says The earth contains enough wind energy to meet all of humanity’s power needs if future technologies are able to tap into high-altitude winds, a new study says. Using models to quantify wind energy potential, Waging the Battle to Build the U.S.’s First Offshore Wind Farm After a decade seeking approval to build the U.S.’s first offshore wind farm, Cape Wind president Jim Gordon is on the verge of beginning construction. In an e360 interview, he describes why his struggle has been good for clean energy — and why the fight is still not over. READ THE e360 REPORT researchers at the Carnegie Institution for Science and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory calculated that more than 400 terrawatts of power could be extracted from the planet’s surface winds — which could be accessed with land- and ocean-...
