European Wind Potential 20 Times Greater Than Demand, an Industrial Info News Alert

GALWAY, IRELAND--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The wind potential for Europe could be 20 times greater than energy demand in 2020, according to the latest report from the European Environmental Agency. The report, "Europe's Onshore and Offshore Wind Energy Potential -- An Assessment of Environmental and Economic Constraints," concludes that the wind power generation potential is far greater than previously thought. Despite the environmental and social constraints on wind sector development, like noise, visual impact and danger to wildlife, wind could easily play a much bigger role in achieving the European renewable energy targets of 20% of power generation from renewable sources by 2020.
